  • Tele Hum + Single Coil 3 way Switch

    First time builder/modifier here so forgive me if this is a stupid question. I'm building a custom Tele and I wanted to use a Single Coil in the neck pickup, and the Tele Style Humbucker (Hot Rails Tele) in the bridge spot with only a 3 way switch, 1 volume, 1 tone. There doesn't seem to be a wiring diagram for this. There is one for that exact setup but a 4 way switch (for running in series). I don't have any interest in running the pickups in series. There is also a diagram for a 3-way switch, 1 vol, 1 tone but with a standard humbucker rather than the Tele Style, so I was wondering if the wiring would be the same for using a Tele Style Humbucker as it is for a standard humbucker.

    Yes, it is. Solder and tape off the red and white wires. Solder green and bare to ground, and black goes to the 3-way switch.
