  • Uh-Oh! More Mods! (Tele this time)

    Just ordered the Seymour Duncan Little '59 Humbucker (bridge) / Vintage Stack (neck) set for my MIM Tele.

    Thinking about wiring each via push-pulls for coil splits (one or both) and the 4-way switch.

    Thoughts anyone?

    The split sound of the Little 59 isn't quite as good as the parallel sound, to me. I also don't think splitting the Vintage Stack is worth it, unless you are going for hum-cancelling with another split pickup.

      So your recommendation is to leave the neck stack as a stack and use one push-pull to do a series / parallel on the bridge humbucker instead of a coil split?

      What I was hoping to achieve was close to classic single coil Tele on either pickup when split, then be able to go the full Monty with either or both of them humbucking.

      Hum really isn't much of an issue for me, as my Marshall tube amp adds some (but not much) all on its own

        Yeah, use the switch for series/parallel of the bridge pickup. Just use the neck pickup full on all the time.

          I concur with Mercer. [EDIT: My brain said Mincer but my hands typed Mercer instead.]
          Series/parallel for the bridge, since the Lil59 isn't great split.
          Vintage Stack is designed to sound singlecoily at full strength.

            I think you mean Mincer . . . but I also agree with both of you.

                Any chance of a wiring diagram, 4 way switch, push-pull for bridge humbucker series/parallel, preferably on the tone pot?

                If anyone's got one for a 3-way switch I can adapt it.

                Thks in advance

                  You'd have to combine this diagram with the 4 way switch, with this diagram for the series/parallel switch.

                    Thanks but thats a phase shift not a serial / parallel.

                    How about this one? Click image for larger version

                          Would be interesting to have the neck stack split and ran in series with one coil of the tele 59.

                            When it comes down to it, the series option only really works well with 2 vintage output single coils. It can turn into mud quickly with higher output pickups.

                              I can fit a second push pull and do a phase invert on the neck, not sure if that's worthwhile or not.

                              Thoughts anyone?
