So I've got some seymour duncans coming, and was going to use a custom made pickguard with some custom wireing. I drew out what I thought would work. The switched are ON-ON-ON DPDT switches and turn the pick up from single coil to off to humbucking. I was just wondering if I got my wires all correct.

first, you'll need on/off/on switches.

second, i just hope you're only wanting to have the pickups in parallel to each other. you won't get series connections like that.

Opps, On-Off-On is what i was thinking originally, dont know what I was thinking. How would I put them into series? or what is the difference.

well, your wiring is pretty inefficient. you can use SPDT switches for what you want.

and for series/parallel stuff, u can add a DPDT between each pickups so you can get that effect when any of the pickups are engaged...

They have wiring diagrams for pretty much any configuration you could ever think of.

I actually used the seymour site for getting the basic layout. But the one thing I wanted to be able to do was control each pickup with one switch. In this case the On-Off-On would corospond to single-off-humbucker. I did see the one layout on SD that shows how to hook them all up to a "master switch" that turns all 3 into singles or hums. I wanted to have each pickup individually controlable with out a million switched so that i could have a hum and two singles going, or two hums and a single for example.
