    BeauBrummels is correct, no sound would be produced in either of those.

    I added a Red wire that would replace the current, errant Black wire that comes off the volume pot and goes to the 5 way switch.

      Thank you so much for adding that info to this thread.

        No problem. Anything I can do to support a worthwhile thread.

          Coil split to activate the adjustable screw coil. Wiring is incorrect, not sure what the correct way is, but this is not it.
          Top drawing is correct, bottom is wrong.

            This is the correct way to wire the coil split to activate the screw coil.

              WDeeGee,

              Both are valid methods, just different ways of going about the task. I have used each one successfully in different projects previously. Sometimes because of limitations imposed by the other design elements of the circuit you're working on, you're not able to route the Series Link Pair to Hot like in Method 2 BUT your circuit allows you to route it to Ground, so you employ Method 1 to achieve the end result.

              Please see the attached summary "slide" I created in quick-and-dirty fashion, for the 2 methods and the short explanation of each I added to the left. Maybe those explanations will clear something up for you.

              Why do you believe Method 1 is incorrect? Did you try it and it not worked? If yes, please start a separate thread and I would be glad to help you troubleshoot it.

                And just to clarify, Jack is correct. There's more than one way to "skin a kat", so to speak. Ultimately, what needs to be understood, is that if you want to "kill" the stud coil, you short out black and white. And if you want to "kill" the screw coil, you short out red and green. It doesn't matter, electrically, how you accomplish that. (Talking Seymour Duncan pups here. Others may be different.)

                  I took another look and yes, both methods would work. The second methode keeps the phase the same with both HB on and the first method reverses it?

                    No, phase remains normal in both methods.

                    If you would like to discuss further, please start a new thread. This particular thread is meant to be dedicated to just SD diagrams that have confirmed issues that need to be corrected eventually.
