I have a bit of an issue with the wiring of a guitar I've built... and cant find any diagrams that could wire it the way I want it. Guitar is a les paul style guitar with two 4-conductor humbuckers, a standard 3 way switch, two push-pulls, and an on/off switch + 9V batter

As it stands, I'd like:

Standard 3-way selection between pickups
independent volume and tone controls
independent coil tapping of the pickups (ie. each push-pull corresponds to a pickup, push pulls under the tone knobs)
and something interesting with the 9V and on/off switch if anyone has any suggestions? a preamp or circuit I could make...


a wiring scheme for that would be cool, and much appreciated, but open to suggestion of something else that could provide more versatility with what I've got mentioned above, if anyone has any ideas theyre willing to share!


Thanks!

if they're active pups, you can't coil tap

forgot the battery electronics, sorry...should be easily workable once you figure out what you're doing though

arch from my understanding of his post he wants some kind of active eq/tone circuit? i dunno


I couldn't really tell, it helps to know what the pups are. i just saw a 9v and push pulls and put in the comment.

Pickups are passive (sorry for not mentioning that), I was just looking for an active EQ or tone circuit that could be turned on and off at will via the on/off switch if thats possible?

this is what you're looking for. do everything it shows except just pretend the push/pull section is on your tone knob


thats exactly what im looking for! but if you were to put in an active tone circuit, whereabouts would that figure into the diagram? I've no idea how to integrate these things

Lotsa info on that, along with a schematic, and even a deluxe version. Just put it between the switch and the output jack.

With a bypass? or how does that work? Can I use the guitar without turning that on putting it between the switch and the jack? (I'm not good at this stuff... just getting into it)

yeah, you can do it with a bypass if you want.

Maybe dumb question, but how do I do that? (bypass)
