I want to make a guitar with three humbuckers. EMG's to be specific. I love there new quick wiring thing and was wondering if its possible to do 3 humbuckers. Thanks!
You can indeed have 3 humbuckers! I've not tried a guitar with such as they aren't popular, though I don't know the reason for it.
I bought an EMG H4 and it didn't show you could do 3 pickups only 2. do you have a schematic?
You just wire it up like you would 3 single coils. If you are going to do actives, it gets a bit more complicated...but for Gods sake, don't buy the EMG HZs, if you are going to buy passive EMG's, but the SRO OC1's, much much much much better pickup.
Thanks for the info! I appreciate it!
If any one does, send me the schematic!! Thanks
Look up the Les Paul Black Beauty - 3 humbuckers. There might be a diagram floating around for it.
John 5 Triple Tele has 3 humbuckers. Another possible wiring diagram floating around.
the reason why there aren't many 3 humbucker guitars is because too much pull from the magnets will kill sustain. if you're using actives then that isn't a problem as they have weaker magnets.
OK put 3 dimarzios humbuckers in an RG I did I love it! Just wire it up like hum-sig-hum, that's what I did and it works great, the sustain sucks tho as previously stated
ya well what im wondering if u can do it with the emg quick wiring
Yes, you can put 3 humbuckers in a guitar. EMG has alot of wiring diagrams on their website, so I think I would start by looking there. The company's website is ALWAYS the best place to start when you have questions about their product.
