  • Correct SD Diagram??



    hi all~ Will this diagram split my neck SM-3 as well? I tend to think not as the neck pup isn't showing the same # of wires as the bridge.... Any appropriate schem out there? My push/pull is on the tone pot...
    Many thnx~

    p.s.
    it's still there

    Zozoe,

    That diagram is intended to split the neck and bridge at the same time but it has an error. The Red & White wires from the neck pickup are supposed to connect to the rightside middle lug of the push-pull switch, not run to Ground like the diagram shows.

    The diagram has a 2nd error: it is missing the Green and Bare wires for the neck pickup. Those 2 wires should be wired to Ground (the back of a pot) just like you see the Bridge humbucker's Green and Bare wires routed.

    The diagram also has a 3rd error with the wiring on the 5 way selector switch. The wire that comes off the 5 way switch and then connects to the volume pot needs to be fixed as follows: that wire needs to come off the 5 way switch fron the last empty lug on the same side of the switch where the 3 pickup hot wires are attached, not the 2nd lug on the side its currently shown coming off.

    I'll make a post about the problems in this diagram in the thread "Is there a problem with this diagram?"

            That should be a great guitar to get this wiring.

              Indeed, MINCER,,, i picked this up, like new, at a FL GC for an obscene 300 bucks, & it plays great, nice C neck, delicious medium jumbos, & the P/P circuitry already there, so I'm simply upping the most likely mediocre EPI pickups, one by one,,, or I may just live with the other 2,,, but the SM3 came along at a great price,,, so,,, wth~
