So I need some help with this, i've done a bunch of guitar wiring before, but only from diagrams.

2 Seymour Humbuckers

2 Tones and a master volume

1 Double Poled mini switch to split both humbuckers
1 Double poled mini switch for series parallel for both Pickups

I cant seem to find a diagram
Where the hell did slide guitar go!?!

so if you've done a bunch of wiring going off of diagrams you should have no problem adapting diagrams to suit your needs.

Check out the humbucker wiring mods at guitarelectronics.com

That should get you squared on the series/parallel and coil splitting.

no brainer.

simply NOT possible. It takes two poles to switch a HB from series to parallel. To do both with one switch takes four poles.

AND if you have one switch doing splits and another doing S/P, you must be VERY careful about how you do the wiring so you don't end up with opens or shorts. (dead combinations)

And before you ask ... No, i won't design this for you. But i will check your design and tell you if it will work and if not, what is wrong with it.

as an alternative to one switch for coil splitting and one for series/parallel, you can use two on/on/on switches, and have a series/split/parallel switch for each humbucker

(link)

then the rest is fairly straight forward

Or you can actually use 1 on/on/on switch to do a series/split/parallel for both pickups, I figured out how to do that with my Schecter C-1 Classic because I only had 2 holes to work with. It was easy enough to do. Just run the hot to the 3-way first, and then to an on/on/on switch in the typical s/s/p config. Go nuts!

yeah, i figured out the series parallel thing, after looking over a bunch oh diagrams.
I've decided to go with 2 series/parallel switches instead. which is very simple for wiring.

New Question

Which sound do you prefer, Parallel humbucker or split humbucker?

4PDT aren't that common and they're a bit pricey. but they are quite handy!

I like parallel better than split. The sound isn't quite as simple as a split, because there are two "sensing windows" rather than one. But the inductance is half that of a split bucker. That makes for a bright tone. AND it still hum cancels. That's a huge benefit, imho.
