Hello I'm new. I have a suhr antique 2009 and on the certificate it says "NM tone push pull. I opened it up and to my surprise there is a metal ring surrounding the pickup cavity with a trim pot attached to it. What does this do?

I have just discovered that it is a SSCII ,Silent Single Coil System. Can anyone tell me what the trimpot is for?

Sounds like the old SSC1... If so, that trimpot allows adjustment of the noise cancelling coil to optimize hum rejection. Still a fine piece of equipment.

I don't think the SSCII has a trimpot. The SSCII came into being as I recall late 2011/early 2012. Someone will chime in if I'm mistaken.

Pics?

Thanks Ireese, that sound about right.I live in Europe so I might need to adjust the trimpot because we have 50hz here.

You have to upload to an image host like flickr and put the link inside img tags.

Thanks Ireese, yes it does look exactly like that. I'll look in to how to adjust the trimpot for European hertz. Thank you for your help.

It is the same adjustment for either, don't touch it unless you change pickups

Oeps I've already turned the trimpot, but I did mark it before doing so. Is it possible to reset it? I work in a theater and I could go there and turn on some spots (that is always a good hum-maker) and then look for the best trimpot settings?

The best thing when you see a trim pot is not to turn it to see what it does Wink

You need to have the guitar in your normal playing position facing away from the amp in a NORMAL playing position and normal distance away from it with the circuit hanging out to adjust, One trim is for the Bridge the other for neck and middle but they do interact. You need to keep playing with each until you find the balance again. Use your ears. Then stuff the circuit back under the pickguard.

Thank you for taking the time to explain how to adjust the trimpot. Finding out how things work has always given me pleasure, but your probably right about not touching trimpots Wink My suhr only has one trimpot, so I expect that is for all pickups. Although I don't have a whole lot of hum and buzz at the moment, I will follow you're instructions and find the best settings again. Thanks and regards, Russell
