Ok what I am looking for is a 1 pickup schematic with 2 volume pots which are alternated with a switch. It doesn't sound too hard but I havn't seen any schematics like that

I've never seen a schematic like that, but all you have to do is follow a diagram like this, then between the picup and volume pot, install a spst switch. Solder the black wire from the pickup to the middle lug of the switch. Solder another wire to one of the outer lugs of the switch, and solder that wire where the black wire from the pickup is soldered to the volume pot in the diagram. Then solder the other lug of the switch to another volume pot in the same way as shown in the diagram, and solder the middle lugs of both pots to the output jack Not very difficult to do....

edit: no, not like a tone pot. They're wired differently.

got it uploaded. here.


All your doing is putting a switch in before and after the volume pots.

pu1 and pu2 are the pickups, the thing in the top middle is a 3-way switch, the thing in the very middle is a dpdt switch, the zig zags with arrows are the pots. The thing that looks like it says Jared probably means jack.

but i only want 1 pickup. Can I just forget the 3 way switch all together? is the toggle DPDT?
#9
hold on....are you wanting to control the volume of each coil in a humbucker?

What I think hes looking for is a pickup with two volume knobs, and a switch to choose which volume pot is activated. So he/she can set different volumes and flip between the two. Am I right?

yes just wire from the pickup to the DPDT toggle switch. i advise you to learn about wiring guitars and electronics before going any further. this is all simple stuff that if you've read or at least have an little understanding and a the info of the symbols you can do this.
