Ok so I got an EMG81X and an EMG60X for christmas and nstalled them just fine. The trouble is, my Ibanez has a 5 way switch and I can't use it with the EMGs.

So I took a 3 way switch out of my Telecaster and installed that. Now I don't know if the switch is knackered(I ordered a new one anyway) or if i'm wiring it wrong.

Here's what i'm doing so far:



But that only gives me the neck pickup and both pickups, not the bridge. I know the bridge pickup works because when I reversed that I got the bridge and not the neck.

Do you think my switch is screwed or am I doing something wrong here.

Switch is wrong. wire it like this. obviously you'll have to transpose the wiring for your particular guitar, but the principle is the same.

Use the wiring diagram for any and all future wiring questions. and actually read the first page. believe it or not, it will help you.

Thanks i'll try it.

I was following a diagram (the one on this page http://forum.emgpickups.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=24 ) but I either messed up or it's wrong.

Oh yea I forget to mention, I am actually getting some output from the "non working" pickup, buts it's waaay too low, barely audible. Like I said, this isn't a pickup issue but this damn switch.

I think Jim meant the wiring thread anyway. Here's a link to it.

That was one of the first things I tried but I got the same result

I'll wait until the new switch arrives then i'll try again.
