Right. You shouldn't need to hammer it in, but yes, that's right.

I asked this before in a different thread but was told to go here. Anyway...

I need a readable diagram or some good explination of how I can add a single coil pick up my guitar which has a single humbucking pick up hotwired (no pots). What is the best way to make this addition to the already existing circuit w/o making it causeing impedance problems?

So you don't want pots and you want to add a single coil? Just hotwire the single coil. Do you want a switch?

You should probably post some info on those PCB switches that are all over the place now. These:



When I first got started I had a horrible time looking for diagrams for them. I had one, but I lost it, I think you might have posted it for me, Jim.

I just brought my used guitar into the shop,and they said the wiring is all messed. One of the pick up doesn't even work. And the toggle switch aren't connected properly..... I only have so little money, only paid my 50$ fee to get intonation and buzzing fixed up, that's all i can pay.

How do i test if the pick up is even working?

PS: Its a Samick AV3 guitar. Les paul style

If you have a DMM (digital multi-meter), desolder the pup leads from the circuit and set the DMM to somewhere around 20k OHMS measurement (yours may be labled differently). Touch the test leads to the pup wires. If you get a normal reading (from 8k-12k-ish) the pup works. If you get no reading or something crazy (like 200k) the pup is open and either needs rewound or thrown away (rewinds are not cheap).

If you don't have a DMM, solder the pup to a 1/4" jack and plug in. If you get sound, she works.

You might as well get a new toggle. They're around 7 bucks. You can try to bend the leaves back into contact (when the switch is in the middle position), but this is a temporary fix at best. Those switches all suffer from the same design flaws.

Hey, guys... any suggestions for wiring a HXH, 1V - 1T, 3-w guitar??

I'm thinking replacing the tone pot for a push-pull and split coils.

Any other ideas? And the diagram for it...

THANKS!

Yeah, I did... I actually have the ones from DiMarzio and SD.

I should rephrase... which wiring option would you suggest? The one you'd wire your guitar with.

I wired my 2 HB 1V 1T push/push with this diagram:

http://www.seymourduncan.com/suppor...2h_1v_1t_3w_1pp

Push/push was on my Tone pot.

I rarely use the coil-split tbh even though my bridge HB was bought specifically to split.

Dude, I didn't think to check the site for the wiring diagrams! I found the correct way that my DAX should have been installed on there (although I do have the paper with the exact same info on it that came with the pickup XD). I'm gonna get my friend to fix it tomorrow. Thanks, Jim!

If you look on the first page it has links to many sites. Including Seymour Duncan's. They have a wiring diagram page with the exact configuration you're after. If you still get no joy after looking there then post again explaining that and if possible why it didn't help. Then we can help you.

Nice thread man, wish I had found it earlier.

Here's something interesting for you folks. It's not really useful for wiring modern guitars, but it might give you some ideas. This was how my old Teisco was wired when I got it.
edit: it has a steel pickguard

I've just been told by someone that this setup, while using a shielded cavity will create a "ground loop, which isn't good". Electronics experts? Assistance?

That's right, chuck. Remove the wires on the pot and switch casings to fix that problem.

A ground loop is where the components (say, pots) are grounded via a wire on the casings connecting them all plus the foil/shield in a cavity. The components are already in contact via the foil, so wires soldered to their casings are not necessary and will only pick up noise.

Basically, a ground loop is where the component is grounded 'twice'.
