The Luminator 4/3 System is based off our popular Terminator 4/3 System. The 4/3 System brings the most out of your HSS equipped guitar. This System is specifically designed for instruments with one humbucker, with coil splitting capabilities, and two single coil pickups utilizing a single volume control and a single tone control.
However, with the Luminator 4/3 System we not only have the same functions as the standard 4/3 System, but we can also change the value of the Goes to Eleven Volume Pot from 500k to 250k.
With the Luminator Touch Capacitance Switch in standard mode (Blue) the Goes to Eleven Volume Pot is at 250k and the 5-Way Selector Switch will provide all the pickup selections you would expect.
Now touch the Luminator Touch Capacitance Switch to engage Transformed mode (Red) the Goes to Eleven Volume Pot will now change to 500k and the 5-Way Selector Switch will have the follow pickup combinations:
- Bridge pickup only, same as in standard mode but at 500k value on volume pot
- Bridge pickup split, for a thin bright tone
- Bridge with Middle and Neck pickups in series, this position sounds similar to two humbucker pickups
- Bridge & Neck pickups in parallel, simular to the tele twang with more meat
- Middle & Neck pickups in series, sounds similar to a neck position humbucker
Having the pickups in Series provides a warmer tone similar to a humbucker. This provides thicker fuller rhythm and lead tones to inspire your playing and take your playing to another level. Having the Goes to Eleven Volume Pot change to 500k in Transformed mode will keep the single coils sounding great when they are in series.
