Control Layouts

guitar-controls1
Layout #1
This is the default layout for the Earlewood model: Volume, Angled Megaswitch, and Tone. The switch, made in Germany by Schaller, gives standard Bridge or Neck pickup, plus single coil sounds. This layout requires a body thickness of 1.70″ or more.

guitar-controls2
Layout #2
Volume, Tone, and Megaswitch. This layout allows for a thinner body. Incidentally, the tone control is usually a master, but can be wired to exclude the neck or bridge pickup.

guitar-controls3
Layout #3
Angled Megaswitch, Volume, and Tone. Volume is normally the knob at the far end of the switch throw. A thinner body would accomodate this layout.

guitar-controls4
Layout #4
Volume, Straight Megaswitch, and Tone. This layout requires a body thickness of 1.70″ or more.

guitar-controls5
Layout #5
Volume, Tone and Toggle Switch. A Push/Pull pot can be used to select single coil mode. You can have a thinner body with layouts #5 and #6.

guitar-controls6
Layout #6
3 Knobs and Toggle Switch. Choose either 2 Volume / 1 Tone or 1 Volume / 2 Tone.

guitar-controls7
Layout #7
This is the default layout for the Caldera model. Toggle Switch in Upper Bout, and 2 Volume / 2 Tone. The V/T for the bridge pickup is normally the row closest to the bridge. The upper Tone is a P/P pot to select single coil mode. A special capacitor is used for the bridge pickup tone control, giving it a throaty midrange tone like a wah pedal halfway down.

guitar-controls8
Layout #8 (PLUS System)
Toggle Switch in Upper Bout selects Piezo, Magnetics or both. Magnetic Volume / Tone, Volume for Piezo are placed near the bridge. The first knob is a P/P pot to select either of two pre-set tone curves for the Piezo.

Layout #9 (PLUS System)
Same as above layout, except Magnetic Volume / Tone, Volume for Piezo are placed further from the bridge. In this layout, the P/P pot is the Piezo Volume.
For either PLUS layout, a miniswitch may be substituted for the P/P pot to select either of two pre-set tone curves for the Piezo.

Same as layout #8 except the pickup selector is a second toggle switch. The P/P pot can be used either to switch to single coil mode, or to select the piezo tone curves.
