So i decided ill just use a master tone :P
then ill have an extra space for future mods, and have fewer wires to get tangled in
thanks for your help though
how can I go about wiring it the normal way with the humbucker?
EDIT: and coil tappable would be preferable
thanks for your help so far
hey me again..so i decided to put in another push pull pot can someone quickly check my new schematic for me to see if its how it should be?
ordered the parts they should be arriving sometime this week hopefully.
really? that sucks :S because with normal strat wiring like in this video he can have tone on all 3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th-K8tglKNc
thanks for the help though
oh in the second diagram its asking if i wire the red/white conductors of the bridge pickup to the middle pickup ones, what would happen
the second diagram is saying this
hey awhile ago i decided to to mod my old starter ibanez gio. i plan to get some guitar fetish pick ups,and coil tap the neck and middle positions.getting 2 lil killer, and a crunchy rail for the bridge. doing this mainly cuz im interested in learning how. and its a cheap guitar to mess with.
anyways made up a schematic and im finally going to order the parts monday... could someone please look over the schematic and see if its good to go? id really appreciate it. i know everyone here is pretty smart with this stuff..also think i may get a another switch for the bridge to split it...what kind of switch would i need? dpdt im guessing or should i just get another push/pull pot?
Thanks for the help. Since posting that I also got a good bit of info from another forum. It seems like it should be a pretty straightforward mod and hopefully a good start for me into guitar wiring. One thing they recommended was getting a push/push tone pot rather than push/pull. Anyway I'll probably be doing it sometime in the next month or so.
Last summer I purchased a used PRS Custom 22. Previously the Dragon IIs had been swapped for 5708s and the 5 way rotary for a toggle switch. For whatever reason though, a push/pull tone pot was not installed. So I have been thinking about switching out the old tone pot for a P/P. I may or may not do it myself (I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to guitar wiring and I'll have to buy a soldering iron), but I know it's a fairly easy mod and not sure if it'd be worth paying a shop to do it.
Anyway I'm just looking into some insight into what I need to do this. Looking at the diagrams on PRS' site and comparing them to my current wiring, I think I have everything I need except for the P/P tone pot. Also I think I may need a .022 capacitor. Any tips, suggestions, insight to what I need to do, etc. would be appreciated. Also curious if anyone has an idea how much it might typically cost a guitar store. Here's a pic of the current wiring...

It's a Jackson Kelly KE-3. I'm trying to find out if it would be possible to fit the Seymour Duncan Blackouts Preamp to it, because I really want some actives, and can't afford a whole new set of pups
can anyone tell me how to tell if a pickup (already fitted in a guitar) is 4-conducter or not? thankyou
Hey thanks for the reply, but I found out the problem - I friend the volume pot. So, I'll have to get a new pot now. Is there any other place except the pots where I could wire multiple wires and ground them, to avoid frying pots?
And yes, now I will shield the guitar too.
Is there any chance you will still be making these during the summer?
Alright so I've wired up the guitar exactly the way the diagram states but there is an issue, the 2nd and 4th positions seem to for fine, but out of the other 3 positions I get nothing except when on high gain and even then it sounds distant and diluted. Any idea what I may have done wrong or need to fix? Thanks
Hey man, I tried wiring the guitar. I thought I was successful because the pickups when tapped with a screwdriver were responding after jacked up. But, after I strung up the guitar and started playing there's massive feedback on all pickup positions, and only the middle pickup plays, the neck and bridge pickups do not. And also when I touch the strings, the pickup magnets, the switch or any of the knobs there's a screech along with buzzing. I rechecked the wiring 3 times, rewired some of the parts twice, but in vain. I guess the problem is that I grounded all the pickups and the body on the top of the push/ pull volume pot. Please help!
You could try wiring in a passive low pass filter made up of just a resistor and a cap to peel off some of the highs. If you did this ONLY to the bridge pickup it would leave the others the hell alone it'd be fine. Just wire all this in BEFORE the pickup selector. Basically all the frequencies in guitar are below 4kHz and the highest fundamental (fretted) is in the neighborhood of 1.2 kHz.
Low-pass filter basics
Based on values for 'normal' tone pots and caps you can set that the corner frequency of the filter down around 100Hz and it's about the same as having tone rolled all the way off on the knob.
You probably don't want to dial it back that much, just kill some of the highs, so probably solve the equation for something like 1kHz (around the highest fundamental on the fretboard anyway) and buy the right components and put it in there. Or you could wire the bridge it's own tone control, kinda like what the Strat does for the mid pickup and bridge pickup (separately) anyway.
You may still be unhappy with the tone, but it's a hell of a lot cheaper than replacing the pickup. Eric Johnson wires his tone controls to the bridge the neck pickup and never uses the mid on his strats alone... But he's just the master of tone, so what does he know?
what are 3 pedals i can build that are relatively easy to do so? i want to try my hand at making pedals
are phasers easy? what about fuzzes?
Thank you! Should I assume that the wire that isn't wrapped is the one that connects directly to the pot?
if it's a super switch you can do Neck, Neck and Bridge, N+B in Series, N+B out of Phase, Bridge
its just a normal 5 way
I'm trying to wire up a guitar and I've got 1 tone pot 1 volume pot, 2 humbuckers with 2 wires coming out of them each, and a five way switch. Anyone know of a diagram for this? thanks!
