Alright i've decided to customize the **** out of my epiphone black beauty
so here's the plan

1. i'm gonna totally rewire my HHH black beauty like so

Hopefully, this will provide the following pup combo
with all the pots down, the wiring is like that of a regular LP
with the right pot up, the middle pup will be on, no matter what the selector is set on, and will be sent directly to the output
when the left pot is up, you can add the middle pup to whatever pup combo you already have (allowing for middle-bridge, middle-neck, and all three pups)
Hopefully, this well achieve all seven pup combos that are possible with a 3 pup guitar

2. i'm gonna replace the pups
the middle humbucker will be replaced with a humbucker-sized P-90, making it a HSH guitar

Now, i need some help. First, on the wiring diagram, will this configuration help me get the combinations i want?

Also, what pups do you recommend for the bridge and neck? I play classic rock, hard rock, and more modern stuff (a bit of metal here and there) good cleans are preferred

as far as pickups go, I love the Seymore Duncan Alinco II.
They have an awesome vintage, punchy sound.

Seymour Duncan Alinco II's ftw!
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.

Even though im not a zep fan, you should do jimmy pages wiring setup with push/pull pots to get a bunch of different combos.
Ibanez Jem 777BK, Carvin DC727, Fender MIM Strat
Mesa Boogie DC5
Xotic BB Preamp, Ts9, BBE GS, Boss DD-6
Weber Mass
Morley Bad Horsie 2
Ask me any questions about my gear!

thats better

shoddy pic i know but i whipped it up quick

your 3 way acts like a regular LP then you use the pot to add the middle pup to whatever combo you have and the other one to kill the rest if you just want the middle

i'd consider a coil split for the neck and maybe middle for sweeeeet cleans

EDIT: ok maybe you cant coil split a P-90


EDIT2: make sure you split it the right way so its hum cancelling with the 90
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.
