    So I'm trying to wire up the following pickups and I have this diagram: However, I have this 3 way switch: So going from the diagram that has 4 connectors on each side to mine which has 8 in a row, how would I go about wiring to the switch? I'm just not sure how the 4x2 translates to...

    doing my first parts caster. bought one of those new $130 kramer focus strats in teal blue. all the hardware/electronics are junk but thinking of it as $130 for a neck and body to just throw my own parts into I felt it was a good deal for me. Now I'm looking for a wiring diagram slightly...

    Recently used 50's wiring for the first time in a new guitar and i love it. How the fuck is modern wiring even a thing? Who the fuck wants their highs rolled off when lowering the volume? This weekend i'll be changing all my guitars to 50's wiring. Simple to do so shouldnt take to long. If you...

  5. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So i was watching a youtube video of a guitar James had made that consists of wood from the garage where they originally practiced in. The now the pickups are covered so I was assuming they were his standard "Het Set". He turned the guitar around and shown that the back cover was magnetic and...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, after getting the ES-5, but selling the HX Stomp that it was for, I decided to redo my primary board for the time being to accommodate it. Power is done, just waiting on soldered cables from Sinasoid. I just need to figure out how I'm going to handle the audio cables; likely using...

    Branching off from the pickup magnet thread. Post em up. Guitars, amp gut shots, pedal guts. Things you wired yourself. Things you found on the net, etc. Since I'm currently re-wiring all my guitars with a push-pull coil-tap, I'll start: Wiring by SR, on Flickr Coil tap by SR, on Flickr

    So I'm kitting out an old Peavey for a cousin of mine, and decided to put a SC-sized humbucker in the bridge. I ordered one from GFS, and now am trying to install it. However, they use a quick-connect deal on all their pickups so I'm not really sure what goes with what. Has anyone ever wired up...

    I've been looking for a wiring diagram for two passive humbuckers, two volume, 3 way switch, and no tone. But I haven't had much luck. Can anyone here point me in the right direction?

    Does anyone has an image schematic on the wiring of the these Six Pack of on the 2016 models? Getting horrible buzz and noise especially on the Midselector Position and a tech is looking at it but he cant figure it out either... Thanks
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Ok, wanted to run this past you guys - when I threw a Duncan Custom 7 in the bridge of my Suhr, I didn't immediately realize that the middle position was out of phase in humbucker mode (I don't use it much), so I finally got around to rewiring it tonight. I'd had the Sentient in the neck wired...

    I'm redoing the wiring in my Epi LP, and I have these SPST Push Pull pots I'd love to use to coil tap my pickups. Does anyone know how the wiring for these would be different than just a regular pot? I can find lots of diagrams for a "typical" push pull pot like this
  14. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'd like to run two volumes and no tone, with the first volume controlling the bridge and middle, and second running the neck, in addition to getting those mixed bridge/neck sounds. Any thoughts on how to combine these two mods? And, of course, I have some treble-bleed circuits to install :)

    As the title says, it's a bourns pot I have in a LTD. Everything works but the volume pot does nothing. The pickups are always on. It was working fine and I cannot find any issues in the wiring. I just double checked everything comparing it to a Duncan wiring diagram and it's right. My solder...

    I have no clue what is going on with this guitar. It's a Charvel, 2 humbuckers 1 volume, 1 3 way switch. This is a friends axe. I shielded the whole cavity, made said shield the ground and wired it according to the diagram. I've re-wired this thing 4 times now, my wiring is correct. I...

    I need some help here. Do the seymour duncan blackout pickups require you to ground the strings like passive pu's? Emg active pu's do not. Thanks :metal:

    Hi folks! Few days ago I've noticed that even though im using boss NS 2 , I can hear some feedback after palm mutes. I tried to increase threshold on my pedal, but it didnt worked. So, eventually, I've found out that my pickups were microphonic so I've used wax pot to fix them. I've did...
