This is really bothering me. It's a basic 2 dimarzio hums, 3 way switch to volume wiring. I'm positive i've wired it correctly, but I can't seem to get any sound. Here's a picture of it.
I figure someone here might be able to see something I'm not.
ive tried tried and tired again im trying to put a master series/parallel and master phase in my Ibanez with P90's. I cant seem to get it all to work. ive tried using the jimmy page diagram, master phase diagram, master series parallel diagrams. It has one tone push/pull pot, a dpdt switch, regular volume pot, and a 3 way toggle switch
I can seem to get it. Any ideas or diagrams?
hi, my guitar is getting lots of hum, even though i'm using a humbucker, when i turn the volume knob all the way down it gets loads of hum, which only goes away when i touch something metal, but when i turn it very slightly up (so it still makes no sound but it's not right at the bottom) the hum goes away... why is this? it only seems very noticable on my crunch and lead channels... and it comes back again when i turn up the volume pot so it makes sound, and then when you touch metal it doesn't go away. can anyone help?
He's me hero.
Thanks very much James!
Here's a question, I had a guitar body built and have not decided on the switching (probably should have thought more about that part. I have two small selector "drip" switches routed & drilled in. I was planning more of an on and off setup with the two switches.
So 2 humbucker - 2 switches. Any suggestions for small individual selector switches. Or suggestions for other setups with two small switches.
Once I find the right switches I'll draw out my diagram (this I should have done first)
Yeah, the rotary is just for the bridge humbucker, which connects to a 5 way switch.
To be honest, I didn't know there were more than one way to wire it up. Any wiring i've done before has just been following diagrams on the fender website.
Would different wiring create different sound?
Thanks very much for the help.
So does anybody have any adeas about wiring this:
Any guidance would be great. The Humbucker has 4 output wires.
Out of all the switches I've owned, I have yet to own one of these "dual sided" switches that seem to be the norm.
Mine is just 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
I tried some trouble shooting, and I think the switch is just wack. I can get either pickup working perfectly on their own with just the volume, but as soon as I introduce the switch, everything goes to shit. I had this weird problem where the volume pot was only "off" in the middle position, the tone knob didn't do anything, I don't even know.
The closest I got it to working was with one pickup on 2+3, another on 6+7, and then a wire going to the vol on on 4+5. But then I only got one of the pickups, and it sounded terrible, tone & vol pot issues, etc..
Also, is there a physical difference between the start wire and end wire for each coil, or could they be used interchangeably?
I’ve read the opening mod posts (which were very good) and have trawled through 40 or so pages, but I’m still a little lost with my problem.
I have a Bass Humbucker from a scrapped Stingray copy which has 4 wires. I also have a complete wiring loom from an MIM Jazz Bass (non-active) which I bought on ebay.
I’ve got the routing all sorted so all I need now is a little guidence on wiring the two together. The only diagrams I can find are for active pickups or for humbuckers with 2 wires.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
How do I wire a 5 way selector switch with 8 terminals to act like a 3 way (where 2 of the positions just don't do anything)? I have an HH, Vol + Tone + 5 way switch (I just don't have any spare 3 ways atm) setup, and the pickups are basically single conductors (just using the "hot", and then whatever else is going to ground/ being taped off).
Right now I have the Neck hot going to 3+4, the Bridge hot going to 7+8, 1 & 5 are connect and 1 is running to a terminal on the vol control.
But I'm not getting any output at all. I'm nearly positive than everything else is connected properly.
how would i do that james? disconnect that portion?
So I would like to know if any one here could help we with a set of Lace Alumitones. I need a wiring diagram. I tried the one thier tech gave me (http://www.guitarelectronics.com/product/WD2HH3L11_02/Guitar-Wiring-Diagram-2-Humbuckers3-Way-Lever-Switch1-Volume2-TonesIndividual-Coil-Taps.html) and I can only get the pick ups in split mode. Any sugestions? Any one know anything about these things?
I'm a sucker for knowing how stuff works for the hell of it lol. Is it not just a simple case of relabelling the lugs? In which case, couldn't we just work backwards. I.e. I know that when the 5 way switch is in position 1 (neckwards) then only the neck pickup in series is switched on. I'm guessing all the wires coming out of the neck pickup (excluding the wire that goes to the volume pot) should be connected to the lugs that are activated when in position 1, and only those wires, right? As in, no wires from any other pickups.
Little '59? But if you really want full-sized humbuckers, I would take off the pickguard and check the routing. If there isn't space, you could do some rudimentary routing with a big drill bit or one of those things I can't remember the word for. They wider and make sort of a "w" shape at the point. That's only if you REALLY need fullsize humbuckers, and don't want to pay for a pro to do it. Steer clear of EMGs though.
I know there's a fairly subtle difference when you use the coil tap but I'm hearing nothing at all. Plus, it used to be owned by a friend of mine who tried out a different set of pickups so the wiring could be off.
Here's a couple pics. Let me know if you need a specific angle to get a better look at something:
Thanks for taking the time to reply but I gotta admit, I didn't understand any of that lol. What do red and blue lugs mean in the diagram? Also, on my switch selector all 8 of the pins are in 1 row. I've attached a picture. It's in an Ibanez RGR321EX.
Edit: also what do common poles do?
1 2 3 4 ----------------- 5 6 7 8
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 -----------------------------
Could somebody please explain to me how 5 way switch selectors with 8 pins work? As in, how are each of the 8 pins activated in relation to which position the selector is in?
You want a good seven string set? Go talk to John Petrucci about his Crunchlab and Liquifire. His is one of the best damn tones on the face of this earth
Hey, so I'm doing some wiring for an HSS strat, and I want to make sure that I've got the wiring correct.
The owner wants to be able to switch the humbucker so that it uses just the north, then series, and then south, on a 3 way switch.
If someone could let me know if i need to fix something, that would be awesome.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks so much! I've had these new pups for months now but haven't had time to fit them due to college and a blown tube that took me a while to replace
You're such a helpful person, you should really get more recognition.
I bought a set of EMG 81 /60 set and it is one of the older set that required soldering.
I am not sure how to connect them up. Can anybody that has installed the older wiring offer some pointers or a diagram possibly?
I want to install the 81 in the bridge and the 60 in the neck with a 3 way blade switch and one master volume and one master tone.
Can you experts give me some help here?
