  • wiring help

    i wanna re-wire my guitar and there is no schematic for what im looking for

    HSH guitar , 1 vol, 1 tone, 5way (its an 8 in a row lug, not the 4 per side type) using 500k pots, 47 cap, if that matters

    59 neck , - single lead (technically double with the sheild)
    classic stack mid - 4 lead
    jb bridge - 4 lead

    i want to rewire it to make better use of the 5 way.

    i dont use position 2 or 4 right now. 1 is 59, 2 is 59/CS, 3 is CS, 4 is CS/JB, 5 is JB. i need to keep 1,3,5 (though they dont ahve to be in that position, but i need to be able to use each pup alone.....

    id like to have 2 and 4, if possible, have one be 59/JB, ill let u guys think of something creative for the other

    also, if possible, id like to be able to do phase or series or parallel or wahtever, but i dont have any push-pull pots, if there is anyway i can get taht, thats cool, if not, tell me what i need to do.

    someone draw me a schem or point me to a schem or help or be creative, please

      yea, i dont have that fancy switch (super switch?)

      i think i got waht i want tho

      i switched the mid and the neck on the 5-way. this would make pos. 1 the mid, pos 2. neck and mid (same as before, dont use), pos 3. the neck, pos 4 the neck and briddge, and pos. 5 the bridge?

      no? i think this would work, any possible damage, reason not to?

        Just to let you know, currently, any positions you have where 2 pickups are activated, the 2 pickups are in parallel. You're not going to be able to get 2 pickups in series without a superswitch, though you might be able to find something with splitting.

          That's the solution I was going to suggest. It should work great!
