This one another MIDI pickguard project like the previous one, but this one is smaller and more like an add-on to my existing pickguard. Both of these pickguards are hand made from rosewood, I used a natural oil finish on them. The main pickguard is the tone and volume knob for the pickup. The add-on has two rotary encoders with push buttons. This means that I can send a numeric value and a button press for each of these knobs. I ended up also adding long-press option in the software so I can reset values. I wrote the code so that each knob is assigned to a CC number with a range of 0 - 127. A regular press sends MIDI notes C1 and C2. A long-press sends CC value 0 for the assigned CC number so you can reset the value quickly.
