Quote from: AtrumKithara on April 14, 2014, 05:59:29 PMDefinitely a worthwhile upgrade. Cheap electronics are so annoying. Even mid-priced guitars seem to have poor quality electronics. Switches that quickly wear out and scratchy pots that start to cut out in spots, grrr. I have never had any luck with cleaning them either (nor do I understand how they could have gotten so dirty so quick in a nearly sealed housing that is in a covered chamber.) Replacement is the way to go.

Yup, located on the Gold Coast so if you need any wiring help just give us a shout!I have a terrible guitar that I'm still proud of because I put much of it together myself (and it shows). One thing I have no clue about though is wiring and electronics in general. I may just contact you to get some costs for a rewire.

Quote from: Scarebear on May 04, 2014, 09:17:40 AMI just wanted to quickly write something to let people know I went ahead with a Guitar Sauce rewire. I'm not electronically minded nor can I use a soldering iron without burning myself, so I asked Shaun to do the rewire for me (for a fee obviously). I have to say I am absolutely amazed with the tonal difference (not to mention the custom wiring change I requested).I loved my Notcaster before the rewire. I love it a whole lot more now. It's no longer one of my lesser guitars. I'll be writing more about the process on my own website as soon as I get a spare moment.

Quote from: Scarebear on May 13, 2014, 12:38:16 PMI finally got my act together. Full story on my website and I made a very quick and simple sound file that showcases the clean tones (going from middle position through to the neck position) and the distorted tone (using the bridge position). Neck clean and bridge distorted are now perfect for my liking. I love it!Fingers crossed as I attempt to embed fromSoundCloud
