    Default 1 hb, 1 single c., 1 pz, 1 vol p/p hb_bypass, 1 tone p/p phase-in

    Hello again,

    Why on Earth wouldn't anybody help me on my previous topic, is beyond me...

    So there's another DIY kit coming in from China, this time for a semi-hollow tele.

    What I have thought about in terms of wiring design for this one is:
    * 1 humbucker
    * 1 single coil
    * 1 piezo
    * 3-way blade (piezo, piezo+neck, neck)
    * 1 volume push-pull so that the humbucker bypasses everything and its signal alone is heard
    * 1 tone push-pull for phasing-in the neck

    That's right, nowhere I'm gonna mix the bridge with any of those. It should address only heavy sound stuff.
    Now, I'm having some questions, apart from the remarkably genius-like "Do you know of a diagram that already does all this, or is it doable? Please help!" ����

    Like:

    * Can I bypass the whole circuit, by having the bridge humbucker alone, the way I'm wanting it? E.g. by pulling up the volume? That is, no matter what I have dialed in or which selector position, it's gonna need to have signal.

    * What will I be able to phase the neck with? Can I phase it with the piezo? I would guess not, since it's not magnetic, right? If not, can I then phase it with the humbucker even if its signal is off?

    Thanks!

    I dont understand what you mean

    Is the bridge on all the time?

    Three way switch h for the piezo and neck single is straightforward
    Wire it just as if the piezo were the bridge

    I dont understand how you plan to use the humbucker in the bridge

    By pulling the volume, I'd like it to be on, and bypass whatever selection there is at that point.
    For ex., if the selector is in the middle (neck+piezo) or even if the tone is pulled (for phasing), the bridge and the bridge ONLY will be heard.

    "* 1 volume push-pull for bypassing only the humbucker" - I guess the correct syntax would've been "for bypassing everything else, so that only the humbucker would signal".

    Well, I have no idea about the first time, but you effectively shouting with the enlarged font, plus your entitled and belligerent attitude in the quoted section will certainly make sure I don't help you this time.

    Well you only have to see what that was about. It literally went down the toilet.
    And fonts are there to be used. They should've left that option out, if they knew just how it messes with some people's minds, don't you think?
    Edit: There you go. And btw, I wouldn't worry too much, you just went by that last time as mute as my dead CD-player, to be blunt.

    Calm down

    Loop the wire from the switch - piezo + neck - to the volume pot

    Thru the push pull

    With the bridge on the other side

    PP up bridge only to volume

    PP down
    Neck and Piezo thru switch

    The phase thing is another matter

    What exactly do you mean phase switch for just the humbucker

    Coil spit
    Parallel
    You cant make it out of phase with itself

    Thanks man!

    About the phase thing.
    Well as I said, I wanna put the [neck] in-phase with something, not reverse phase.
    I had read yesterday that you can't reverse phase A with B when B is off. In that case you can only phase it in.
    Also the fact that you can't phase in any way (in or out or reverse or whatever) a magnetic pickup with a non-magnetic one -> which I'll need you to tell me if it's true or not.
    So then I'm thinking, can I phase-in the neck with the bridge if the bridge is disengaged (volume pushed)?
    And how? What goes where?

    You can't reverse the phase of a pickup
    In relation to a pickup that isn't there
    In effect
    The bridge that isn't in the circuit

    Thats nonsense
    I'm out

    So you're confirming, thanks.
    But then again,
