You just need the North coil from one pickup and the South coil from the other; and of course they need to be wired in phase. A normal single coil pickup has the magnetic polepieces pointing with North up or down. Just wondering about a switch to enable bridge pick up in with neck too. The tonal possibilities are almost endless if you know how to dial it in right, and the tireless tinkerers among us have tried several ways of hooking up the pickups to the pots over the years. All the pickups were in the same position as they are now, but I can't say for sure if the middle is reverse wound by looking at it.

Just complete the guitar wiring diagram order form with your custom specifications and our designers will do the rest. Has anyone seen my cat. Typical standard Fender Stratocaster guitar wiring with master volume plus 1 neck tone control and one middle pickup tone control. The middle looks to be connected rw at least.
Magnet orientation matters, because these are stacked and the magnets are perpendicular to the strings, unlike normal hums which are parallel. Is that still your plan? I owned a Tele with one for a while. To contact the forum owner hit the Contact Us link. When using two coils, they can be combined in series, parallel, humbucking in phase and out of phase. Everywhere i look, i find diagrams with either a superswitch i don't even know what that is, looks complicated or a traditional 1-vol 2-tone configuration with the push pull. Sort by: There is nothing like the sparkle and bell like chime of a vintage Stratocaster. Can you describe the issues you're having? I'm guessing they were humbucker mode then.
This way the engaged single coil in split mode is uppermost. © 2006-2015 All rights reserved. But if the wiring diagram I modelled after has completely differently wired pups, it's another wrench, maybe the biggest one. Each cover is individually aged: not just injection molded with custom colored plastics. I like that diagram posted in the linked thread by the way.
Some players like the tone of the staggered magnet pickups for the Neck and Middle positions, and flat magnets for the Bridge position. Each comes with a specially aged cover. So would not just reversing the wind as in the diagram, just cause out of phase with the other split neck or bridge. A good photo of your wiring would help. But it only matters if one wishes to use coil splitting, I'm not sure that it would make any difference in humbucking mode. A company called Western Filament, Inc. I tried to ask this question on the seymour duncan forum but couldn't find out how to open new thread, sorry.
On the other side I don't want the other pickups which are single coils to sound too trebly. So I want to know if the volume pot has effect on the tone while in open 10 mode. This article is my take on this pickup configuration, and how I came up with a way it could work for me. I need to order parts and scratch board too so any thoughts on this would be appreciated. It's just going to confuse the situation as someone will claim they spot a flaw. You can get interesting tones when using more than one coil. These are the coils used in single coil mode, see diag.
It adds another layer of complexity, or rather another variable to discount when debugging. As I've said before, I would ditch the switching and revert to how the pups were wired before modication, after compass check. Get a custom drawn guitar or bass wiring diagram designed to your specifications for any type of pickups, switching and controls and options. Seymour doesn't just mold his covers with custom colors so that they look old. And for those seeking to achieve the best and most authentic Start tones, a true single coil is the only choice. I suppose, if it were me, I would rewire for normal bucker mode, make sure all is working correctly, then try again. Not sure whether to convert one tone pot to a bridge volume as this would also give me 500k for hotrail and 250k for kinman.
Pictures are needed, if there is to be a successful debug. I decided I want to replace the stock bridge pickup on my strat with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails. If their usual lead out is the same as the others. I did not replace the stock tele bridge pup. Robert Cray uses this type of configuration in his autograph model Stratocaster ®. Specialty Guitars offers the Custom Bridge version for those players needing more output from the bridge position. The no-load tone control won't make a night and day difference.
The idea is to get that chimey, jangly, quack from the neck and the middle single coils and the rock and roll from the humbucker in the bridge position. Unauthorized use or republication is a prohibited. I have a strat five way, a push-pull pot for the volume, and the original fender tone pot. There are no switching options shown, though they may be possible. This creates a different magnetic field, producing more midrange. So I looked for a full sized humbucker and I had the same issue with the tb-5 and the tb-4, but I liked the full shred - a balance of power and rich tone on all strings, but on Seymour duncan site it's says that it won't work so well on a strat.
It adds a hint of brightness and is pretty cool. I don't want it to sound too dark. Strat style guitar wiring diagram with three single coils, 5-way lever switch, 1 volume, 2 tones. Thanks jjlemon and thanks all I think you may be closest to debugging this, or at least understanding what's up. Please Note: This guitar wiring diagram is property of GuitarElectronics.
