2:10 What comes in the kit?
We have several kits available - here's some information about the various options, and what comes with the kit.
9:02 Beginning the installation
9:35 About enlarging your control holes
Working on an imported guitar with metric controls? You'll likely need to enlarge the holes in your guitar. Here are some tips.
11:46 Installing the switch
Here's a trick to make this part of the installation a little easier. The long switch fit in our test guitar, but it was a tight fit.
16:30 Installing the main controls
A short discussion of the bridge ground wire, and some tips to help you get the main unit installed quickly and simply.
26:12 Installing the jack
We make our first connection to the ToneShaper board.
28:54 About pickups
This section is kind of lengthy, and goes into a fair amount of detail about pickup design and construction. We think this section will be helpful to many DIY'ers, but it's not essential if you're using Seymour Duncan pickups (or if you're using pickups with another color code, but you know how to cross-reference your colors to Duncan's colors), as the ToneShaper is labelled using Duncan color codes.
On the other hand, it's a pretty handy reference for learning about 4-conductor pickups, and if you have 4-conductor pickups and you don't know how the colors correlate to Duncan's colors, then you'll almost surely find this section useful.
1:00:23 Pickup and switch connections
We're installing Fralin Unbuckers in this guitar, and we determined in the previous section of the video how we want to make our connections to the ToneShaper. Here we’ll make these connections, plus the switch connections.
1:04:18 Setting the DIP switches
Here we discuss the layout of the manual, and how easy it is to set up the ToneShaper's various functions using its DIP switches.
