I don't want to do any splitting, tapping, phasing, or series/parrallel bullcrap like that. i just got my 2 pickups wired in series. and i can't seem to find this anywhere.
my 5-way switch has 8 connectors on it. looks like a typical strat-style switch to me.
it's actually an ibanez RG guitar electronics.
what i want to do is have in position:
1. bridge pickup
2. completely off
3. neck and bridge
4. off
5. neck

the volume, tone, jack, and ground are already connected. basically i just need to know to which of those 8 connectors to solder the hot leads from the pickup. and then which connector goes to the volume and ground

whats the difference between off and completely off?

WTF is a scale any way.

cuz the body isn't drilled for on/off switches. I'd RATHER it were that way, but its drilled for this switch that i have.
certainly if i could fill in that slot, and paint it to look seamless with the face of the body then i would do it, but i think it would never look good

>>Just use the slot. Drill em a bit, to make the switches fit. I've seen a lot of people do that.

>>EDIT: Wait, why not just buy a 3-way blade switch?

but then i have that slot showing. and i want an OFF position in those 2 inbetween notches. and its the switch that i have already

>>Those selections aren't possible with a standard 5way switch.

no, c'mon. its gotta be possible. there are only 2 things that are impossible: avoiding death, and breathing in outerspace without any kind of assisted aparatus

There are 5 way switches that can do that, but you don't have one.

Yeah that'd work. But for such simple switching, theres no point. There'd be two poles doing nothing, wasted.
These go to eleven...

Not to steal the thread but I did figure out the positions on the Ibanez 5 way, took a shot in the dark and managed to get it perfect the first time, full coil tapping and all. If you want to know how its wired just say the word.

Notsofun, that's because your switch was ment for coiltapping, the threadstarter's switch is made for 3 pickups.


Wait... How can you have a standard 5 way switch if your guitar only has two pickups? Did you buy the 5-way, or does your guitar origionally have 3 pickups?
