    That is correct, what is mentioned in 37 & 39.
    Basically trying to get as much "neck action" as possible out of a two humbucker guitar. (as opposed to the more bridge centric OP that started the discussion)

    Open for whatever is feasible/closest to what I was looking for without doing mag flips and such.

    Cheers!

    So, remind me. Is it post Ever seen this?? or Wood Test: Ash vs Alder (Strat) that you're asking about? Or both?

    Weird. The forum substituted my post numbers for the post name. That's supposed to be 37 & 39.

    Hi all!

    Bringing this topic back from the depths of the forum as it is worthy of both resolution and resurrection.

    Can you please post a diagram of how it can be accomplished?

    Thanks in advance!

    If the "neckstravagant" wiring of 1,2 &3 is indeed doable, what would be a suitable bridge variation in position 4?
    I have always thought the "faux tele" sound that is usually found here is more a novelty than something I would ever consider using.

    Yes, yes, yes. Very clear.

    I always try to manage my wiring scheme so there are never more than two wires in one hole. Use my post #4, fig. 2, as a reference. At the lower left quadrant, (pink and green), there appear to be three wires. But the pink is just one wire. I strip just enough insulation off so that it will span two terminals, then carefully tin the end. When I tin, I make sure I get good solder penetration into the strands, then hold the wire, end pointing down, and slide the iron down to the tip so that any excess solder comes off the end. There's often still a little "pointy" end left, that I just clip off. So now that one wire will go through the hole and into the end terminal, where I gently bend it over to hold. Then the green wire goes in, and I solder the terminal once.

    In other words . . . tin the wire ends, then solder the terminal once.

    Make sense?

    So some questions about soldering.

    Standard wire that I see people use to connect pits, caps, switches, etc., appears to be 22 gauge wire. It also looks to thick to put two or three of them through the holes of terminals on a 5-way super switch.

    Would you pit the wire through the holes and solder, or just solder the wires together and then solder that to the end of a terminal?

    I have been playing HH guitars for so long that when I switch to something with a middle position single, I need to move it far away from the strings so that I don't hit it with my pick.(Which can make for some interesting sounds but also a bit weak)

    However, I no longer feel that I would be missing out on useful sounds if I can manage to "Artify" them with the Superswitch.

    No prob. Using my Superswitch wiring technique, it doesn't matter what goes where. They are all equally as simple.

    Sure. And welcome to the forum. Just give me a little time.

    Are you comfortable doing a mag flip? If you don't, then inside and/or outside coil pairs won't be hum cancelling. This can also be remedied by doing neck-side or bridge-side coils instead. But both are do-able, if you don't mind the mag flip. (Which is pretty easy.)

    The mag flip actually sounds doable (I will examine some discarded humbuckers first to get a feel for the procedure) but I think I would like to have a go at the wiring sans the flip to begin with.

    Recently I find myself spending more and more time on or "around" the neck pickup and really enjoy the different flavors to be had there.
    Is it perhaps possible to manage a neck coil split as well?

    1) Neck Series
    2) Neck Parallell
    3) Neck coil split
    4) "Something parallell" (I can live with alternate coil selections, no problem)
    5) Bridge Series

    PS. Aside from Bridge and Neck series in outer position, the rest can go wherever on 2, 3 and 4 if that simplifies anything.

    Super grateful!

    //best regards Jens
