Dynas in 5120 - wiring question
long time since posting here...but where to go better than this site with this kind of problem/question.
So I'm putting Dynasonics in my 5120, and the only thing I'm missing is correct wiring scheme. I'd like to wire it up rat rod style, just volume, tone and switch...I know I have to use 500 k pots but dunno what kind of cap goes on tone etc. So if anyone has original Dyna wiring I can go from that, or if you want to mock it up for me here that would be wonderful!
Thank you in advance, sorry for bad English and cheers from Croatia.
p.s. why is there picture of Annie in my avatar, it's beautiful, but I do not own it nor did I put that picture there, I was perfectly fine with blank avatar since I'm not active member.
i know if you go to TV Jones web site they have wireing info
The Gretsch site page for wiring diagrams is here: http://www.gretschguitars.c...
For your purposes, you'd basically want the 'G6122-1959 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman® Circuit' link.
This 'Tone Pot Circuit' shows wirings for models including the 6120 DSV which has the dynasonic type pickups and uses the same values for pots and capacitors.
Both use 500K pots and list the tone capacitor as '223K' which means around 22,000 pF or .022uF.
From the Gent circuit, you would basically just leave off the bridge pickup volume and wire the pickup directly to the switch. The master volume and tone are on the output side of the switch.
Thank you both for your answers, I think I got what I need now. We'll see.
Dynas (DeArmond 2000s in my case) look good in 5120s as well.
