I got a new endorsement (WHEY! ) with Bare Knuckle Pickups which I am excited about, but since I'm going from Active EMG's to Passives for the first time, and considering what I plan to do, I am going to need a guru! Slightly disappointed that Bare Knuckle didn't feel they could help me with this, and I don't know where else to turn.
On the LACS I just sold, I used EMG Pi-2's emulated Phase Inversion, which I grew really fond of tonally, and I want to keep using phase inversion. I also want to do parallel switching too. So to summarise, this is what I would like in my Guitar:-
BKP Aftermath in the Bridge
BKP Nailbomb in the Neck
(Both have 4 conductor cabling)
A Stewart MacDonald "Free Way" Switch
Pickups wired to the switch as follows;
Position 1: Neck
Position 2: Both
Position 3: Bridge
Position 4: Phase Inverted Neck
Position 5: Parallel Both
Position 6: Phase inverted Both
Anyone who's able to help, thanks so much!!
That switch looks like a recipie for getting the wrong position live. I can understand why you'd want it as it fits into your Schecter. Personally I'd stick with the stock switch and fit some push/pull pots to do the switching. Seymour Duncan have a pretty comprehensive list of stuff accessed from this page. Key to getting right is knowning the colour codes, which this diagram tells you. BKP's have the same code as Peavey.
