If someone could point me to an off -> on button that would be cool as the switch I have now it just too stiff to do anything.
Dumb question again, is it possible to do this without having a drill?
Do I need to disconnect any wires from the output jack? Or do I just solder these 3 wires on without removing anything?
Ok, that's what I will do. Do you have any switch recommendations/wiring diagrams? They would be really helpful as I am not very good at this kind of things. I bought all my previous guitars with the killswitches already installed.
No, i need it to be on/off/on because i have a tendency to do huge arm movements A LOT and accidentally turn my guitar off while playing. I have tried button killswitches before, but I just like the feel of a toggle better. I thought of this solution, so that if I accidentally hit the switch while playing, it'd just go from on to on again and no one would hear anything different.
Ok, so I'm working on my first build, and am getting to where I need to start wiring up. I'm wondering if I need to remove the back (take off those 2 solder spots) and attach the other wires myself through the other hole, or if the other wires were supposed to be there to begin with. It's an Alnico II neck pup from GFS. EDIT: Or am I supposed to attach the wires to those 4 gold screws?
I've also attached the diagram that came with the pup. Here is the diagram I'm referencing for my setup.
Okay so now ive disconnected the switches but the bridge pickup is still unbelievably bright WHAT DO I DO (im scared )
EDIT: i grounded the bridge pickup on the tone pot in the same spot as the cap, is that why is doing this?
The last page of this has all of the wiring options:
I want positions 1, 3, and 5 with a push-pull along with a strangle push-pull.
The guitar comes with 3 Jaguar pickups and 3 on-off switches.
hey i remember seeing a question brought up but i dont remember seeing any answer and its what i want to do, so can i please get some help here? i want a 3 position switch wired on-OFF-on on a strat with 1 volume, 2 tones. The switch i have is this one: http://www.guitarcenter.com/DiMarzio-3-Position-On-Off-On-DPDT-Mini-Switch-424667-i1134702.gc
how should i wire this up? and yes, i really do need the 3 positions
I'm sorry, but I use google translator -.-
Yes, that's right!
I'll have a drawing of what I want, I hope you understand
if it is possible to implement a SPDT instead of a DPDT
Anyone can help me in doubt, i wanted to implement a killswitch on my stratocaster (push button NO), but as only gives sound to the press, I wanted to use a DPDT or SPDT switch to select, where a DPDT position would DPDT normal sound of the guitar, and another position for the push button..
I want to use both, I would like to use a DPDT or SPDT with connection button (killswitch), which SPDT or DPDT would be a key switch to push button..
Hey, I'm planning on getting a Schecter Hellcat VI. It has 3 on-off switches for the 3 Jaguar pickups. I'm planning on installing a "strangle" push-pull pot. I was looking at other cool things I could do with the wiring. I thought it would be good to have a series-parallel push-pull as well. I want to have the middle and neck in series when both are on and the middle and bridge in series when both of those are on. But when all 3 are on, I want the series bridge and middle in parallel with the series neck and middle like an American Deluxe Strat in the middle position with the S-1 engaged. Is this combination possible?
Thanks, the Guitar is a ESP sth-130 they were only made in Japan, but I got my hands on one, I think your right with the shielding, I emailed the company that sold me the guitar and I am waiting to hear back from them
This is obviously stupid question but I want to be 100 % sure. How do you wire an on/off switch for a Dimarzio 4 conductor single coil so It can be added or subtracted to the signal.
here is a sound clip
So-I am wiring a tom anderson humbucker int a tele-red hot and black ground. Other 2 wires soldered together. when I check with my ohmmeter, I get a reading of 12k ohms-touching the probes to the wires. When I solder the black to ground (volume pot), and check again, the reading goes to zero. The other pickup I have put in-same wiring-grounded to volume pot-works fine. Why am I losing the ground when I solder it?
my guitar hums, but im not too sure why, i checked all the connections and are all good, my guitar wiring is bridge humbucker, neck sicgle coil, volume tone and 3 way switch. when im in humbucker only no hum but as soon as i go both or neck real loud hum when i play with any form of drive, even very light drive, i took a meter to all the connections and all seem good, whats the deal?
I was wondering if it were possible to use a Gibson style 3-way as a coil tap? As in middle position is full humbucker, treble would be the bridge coil and rhythm would be the neck coil.
Weird issue. My volume pot rolls back volume fine until about 30/100 then anything below that is full volume. Any thoughts? Brand new cts 500k pot.
Edit: put in a spare gibson pot I had, works fine now. Wtf cts?
AWESOME the solid wire was the only one they had in any gauge close to the standard but whatever, i can manage
but if theres a series/parallel switch, what sound would it make on the in-between setting :S
if you dont kow thats fine, you're a great help
I'm wondering if this will work. I want the volumes to be independent so I switched the lugs around but i've read that that can give you a pretty dramatic treble loss. Is there a way to avoid that?
Also, yes, I know there's no switch, that's the way I need it to be right now.
for the phasing switch http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/wiring-diagrams/schematics.php?schematic=series_spl_parallel-w-phase what kind of switch do i need? it says SPDT but i cant find any that have 6 lugs like it shows. and if i use a dpdt, what sound would I get from the position that doesnt have a phase?
EDIT: and will this even fit under my pickguard? The store near me only had solid core wire, and it doesnt bend very well so any loop i make is going to be kind of big >_______>
Okay i have a new plan :O
if i wire this Series/Split/Parallel then Phase switch on my bridge humbucker, i can connect the outgoing wire to the normal "bridge" lug section of , right?
EDIT FOR CLARITY: because ill be using that setup instead of the auto split
EDIT EDIT: wait i dont feel like getting a different cap so ill just use the standard 2 tone layout with bridge tone mod
so yeah, will those two work together?
so i finished everything, routing, wiring everything. took a total of 8 hours lol..just one minor problem. not sure if its the shitty jack or my cable but i get some nasty buzzing and scratching if i move the cable around. any idea what the problem is? it was like that before i started modding it.may get a new jack and some cool knobs when i go the music store next..
so my parts came in today and im almost done the wiring. just got 1 question. each pick up has 2 wires that go to the ground(for me its a bare wire and the black wire.) can i pig tail all the ground wires from my neck and middle pick ups together and then ground it, thats ok to do right?...........and for the bridge pickup how many wires go to the switch? just the 1 green correct? cuz the old pick up had 2 wires going the switch and 1 to the ground.
thanks..cant wait to try it out
