Switch / Knob Positions TTBDF
« on: February 03, 2018, 06:35:08 PM »
After taking time off from playing for quite a while, I got my cool Parker TTBDF back out to play. It is this one here:

http://forums.parkerguitars.com/index.php/topic,11722.msg106432.html#msg106432

I'm a little embarrassed to say that I don't remember what all the switches / knob positions do. There's the 5 position switch, a 3 position switch, and 3 knows and the middle knob also pops up as well.

Can anyone help with what each of these do in the positions.

Thank you.
Dave

Its one of the greatest setups known to anyone who sold their strat! Print this:

http://www.parkerguitars.com/support/manuals/maxxFLY%20H-S-S%20PIEZO.pdf

Volume, Tone, Piezo knobs (front-to-back)
Standard Strat blade (position 1 is towards the bridge)

Position 1: Bridge pickup only.
Position 2: Bridge pickup and middle pickup together.
Position 3: Middle pickup only.
Position 4. Middle pickup and neck pickup together.
Position 5: Neck pickup only.

Pretty sure they coil-tapped the Humbucker with the tone knob, so you can actually pretend its SSS instead of HHH

the 3-way switch is Mags/Both/Piezo, but it rotates if you loosen it, so you have to see what yours is doing.

That thing is a monster!

There is also a cool thing you can do with the 3-way switch where you turn the piezo volume all the way down and set the 3-way in the middle and use is as a kill-switch.

Thanks for reminding me!
