So could I just not shield the cavity and still do it this way?

hey guys ive run into a problem with my guitar mod. so i bought a SX strat replica and am switching out the P-ups but the selector switch in the SX has only 7 terminals on it, and all the pictures that ive seen trying to explain how to wire a selector switch all show 8 terminals on their selector switches. So im asking help from all you pros on how i should wire up my selector switch pics like the ones below would be helpful but explaining the 7 terminals instead of the 8. (hopefully this post made sense lol)

The one in the middle is the common, more than likely. It is probably one of those switches that have the poles connected internally, thus only 1 common lug instead of 2.

Thanks for answering the second part of my question and i still need help with my first part, and I checked on the Duncan page and didn't find the second part, so a lin would be appreciated.

hey guys ive got a couple more questions. first in this picture ( http://www.fender.com/support/diagr...0117602APg2.pdf ) at #20 it shows a solder lug, how important is that? can i get by without it? and second being on the volume pot on the farthest right terminal is that a connection that goes from the far right terminal back to the top of the volume pot?

The solder lug is just to ground the points that connect to it. As long as those points are to ground it'll be fine. (Just easier to put a terminal there to be screwed into the body).

Yes the right-hand vol terminal is grounded to the top of the vol pot.

I'm planning on replacing the pickups in my squier strat with 3 stacked single coils (air norton s, fast track 1, and super distortion s) any suggestions on an interesting, practical wiring setup that I can use with the current 5 way switch?

maybe something similar to the ibanez JS series or music man John petrucci setup

push pull pots with coil tap
or push pull tone pot so you can have a different capacitor and get a different tone
or stacked 250k - 500k pot so you can switch between the two
or 3 mini switches on/ off switches (1 for each pickup) instead of the 5 way switch...
thats all i can think of

Use this diagram: http://www.guitarelectronics.com/product/WDUHHH3T2201
With this on every pickup before it goes to the switch (chose one): http://www.has-sound.com/wiring_diagrams/CoilSplit.jpg

I'll contribute with the diagram I was referring to, the ibanez JS 1000, I absolutely love this setup

anyone know how it could be modified with three humbuckers and a five way switch?

I was just thinking this (really) needs to be on the 1st page because it seems the search button is broken...

...it isn't???

Oh well, now it just looks like a shameless bump...

Assuming you just want normal strat (N /N+M/ M /M+B/ B) options then just wire the 3 hot outs from the HB's to the same place the originals were on the 5 way.

To split a 3rd HB you'd need another on/on switch like the push/pulls here or remove the high pass filter (cap and wiring) and use that switch.

You'll then either:
a) decide which 2 to split together (as shown on the diagram tone switch already) or
b) use 3 push/pulls, 1 for each HB.

You have 3 pots on a Squier already so I'd go for the 3 separate split options (and if you want it, put in a toggle for the high pass).

3 separate splits on a 5way switch gives you... 14 pickup options I reckon.

Note: the diagram isn't brilliantly clear but the 2 top pins on the tone push/pull go to ground with the capacitor. The green and bare from each pup go to ground and the black and white are soldered together at the pp switches middle lugs. Red = hot out.

Any more q's just ask if you need it I can draw a diagram (but my drawing sucks... )

Couple questions on that JS wiring diagram....


1.- WTH is a High-pass filter??
2.- On the pots... What do they mean with 500k-W and 500K-D. I understand that 500K is the pot value but what about the other letter?
3.- Should it work with any 3-way switch??

Thank you!!!

The high-pass keeps the high frequencies when volume is turned down.
Any 3 way on/on/on switch can be used.
The letters? no idea... maybe Ibanez part codes for Log/Lin or W ratings

I have a cheap strat copy (cruiser by crafter ) and I'm trying to find a diagram that replaces the tone pots (which I never use- they are always turned fully up) with independent volume controls for each pickup- similar to Gibson guitars. Has anyone actually done this before? cos google comes up with nothing, as do the links at the beginning of the thread

ta in advance

mmhhhh.... I'm loving that wiring... I think I'm going to get two push/pull pots to wire my new GFS pup's.

Man, you may love or hate Satch's tone... but he really knows his gear. That set up is clever. Not complicated to use and a hell of a lot of options. Damn...
