    Here ya go. Let me know what you think of the different pickup combinations after you've tried them out for awhile.

    I love this configuration, and believe this will be my go to configuration for my guitars. Here are my favorite settings:

    I also was hoping you could help with another wiring- same thing, but adding a middle single coil. Details to follow!

    Eric,

    It's great to hear that the wiring scheme worked out without issues and that you ended up really liking some of the pickup combinations.

    If it's not too much trouble to do, it would be really helpful if you updated the description of the video to say what positions are being heard when, e.g. "0:05-0:15 = Position 1, 0:16-0:21 = Inner Coils" etc. If that's a hassle, no problem, but maybe you could reply here telling us the positions that you really liked?

    I would be glad to help out on your HSS wiring scheme question, but it would be best if you started a new thread for that topic.

    Again, glad it worked out, thanks for letting us know how it ended up!

    No problem, I just added it to the video description. Note that the activated pickups/coils are highlighted in the image being displayed on the youtube video.

    Personally, I really love the inner coils sound for clean. I feel it has the perfect combination of warmth and sparkle; many might find it very lovely with a chorus effect.

    I also love the outer coil on the neck pickup alone. It allows for some bell-like harmonics to come out, which I like for bluesy licks.

    Oops! Somehow I missed earlier how you changed the color of the pickup coils during each segment, but I see it now - thanks!
