So I recently came into possession of one of these things - a first act guitar with a built-in speaker. Seems like a good project for hacking open and seeing what I can do with it.
Turns out, they coated everything with white paint - wires and circuit board and all.
I'm thinking that my best bet is to hack something into the middle of the pickup circuit so that I can run other signals into the middle and see what kinda cool noises I can coax out of it.
So I've got one single-coil pickup with two wires going to it, both are black...
One is larger than the other tho. So the question is... which wire is which? Is there a standard for thin is ground, thick is live or something?
If possible, I'd like to ID all of the connections before I hack anything apart.
Also, am I interpreting this right that if I put a 1/4" jack in the middle of the hot wire that I could make a signal on that wire modulate the guitar's signal or vice versa?
