    Default I need a diagram for one humbucker/2 push-pull pots

    On my guitar, I have a JB Junior on the neck and two push pull pots (1 volume - 1 tone).

    I need one push pull pot to switch the pickup between series-parallel and the other one to switch it between humbucker in series -single coil (coil split).

    So I found this diagram which is told to be do the trick:

    Welcome to the forum!

    From what I've found with the JB Jr, it sounds a lot better in parallel than split. Plus, it stays hum-cancelling.

    Well this wiring will give me all. Serie, parallel and split. Unless it is correctly drawn.

    I highly recommend this wiring , if you want to do just one pickup you can by just focusing on the left (lets say) parts of the switch. If you want to do both follow the diagram exact.

    here is three incarnations of it, if you have a one pickup guitar and want the wiring straight to the jack let me know. You get 4 sounds out of one pickup, 12 if you have two pickups or 24 if you have 4 push pulls.

    The op diagram should work fine.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    Beaubrummels thanks for the confirmation, appreciated.


    Shadowfire90 thank you very much for that diagram. It's much better than the one I got since it allows two different single coil options as north and south.


    I appreciate if you post the one pickup version of your digaram
    . This is the way I am going to have the pickup wired.

    Waiting eagerly and thank you again.
