  • My Start Mod. help! :)

    hi everyone!

    help me to wire a new mod for my strat-copy guitar.

    my PUs:
    Neck: Lil'59
    Middle: Duckbucker
    Bridge: Hot Rails

    all Humbuckers are 4 conductor.

    thats what i want:
    (switch positions)
    1. Neck PU only
    2. Neck Split + Middle
    3. Middle Only
    4. Neck + Bridge
    5. Bridge Only

    (tone and volume)
    1. Master Volume
    2. Master Tone
    3. Bridge Volume only (will this effect on Hot Rails Sound?)

    Thanks!

    There's two ways to do this: the expensive way, or the cheap and easy way - with a small concession.

    1. Use a Superswitch. (Around $15.00)

    2. Reverse the neck and middle hot wires on the 5-way. (Along with a simple mod to the wiring.)
    That will give you:

    1. middle
    2. neck split and middle
    3. neck
    4. neck and bridge
    5. bridge

    Notice that the only thing different is we've reversed the #1 and #3 positions. This is how I have my Genny wired.

          Sorry, I was still working on the diagram.

          Do this:



          I don't have the switch in front of me, so I can't remember one thing. The red/white combo of the neck pup will go to either A or B. Just look closely at the switch and see which terminal is shorted to the middle when in the #2 notch position.

          Edit: When I say "shorted to the middle" I mean shorted to the terminal labeled "ground".

                  btw - In the above diagram, I'm pretty sure its "B" where you want to connect the red/white combo of the neck pup. I normally keep a 5-way on my desk, but I installed it into my Start.
