Podcast 383: Eric Daw

Guitarmaker and repair expert Eric Daw returns to the Fretboard Journal Podcast to talk about his recently released book, Solid Sound: 23 Schematics for Wiring Vintage and Modern Single-Coil, Solid-Body Guitars. The book features Daw’s favorite pickup wiring layouts for Fender-style guitars, including a few that he’s closely guarded over the years, along with helpful charts and advice that will have you seeing your guitar in a whole new light.

During our chat, he explains how transformative some of these wiring changes can be to a guitar (even without swapping pickups) and how even a single-pickup Esquire could benefit from a non-stock wiring setup. We also discuss Daw’s current guitar output, his repair work, and the call-in guitar repair podcast he hosts, the Fret Files.
