HSS wiring
« on: November 28, 2021, 11:34:21 AM »
Hi guys I'm new here and seeking for help.


I swapped the neck and middle single coil of my Strandberg Boden Classic 6 with two True Grit single coils (I've attached the schematics).
Firstly I just swapped neck with neck and middle with middle but position 2 sounded like out of phase.

After a little bit of trial and error I tried to follow the advice on the Bare Knuckle Wiring diagram for HSS boot camp pickups and I swapped middle and neck pickup.
But position 2 seemed not to be hum cancelling so I ended up rewiring the bridge humbucker swapping black with white and green with red.

What I ended up with seems to work but I don't know if I actually did something funky (as I know barely anything about wiring pickups) so I'm asking you guys if you could check it for me.
I've attached the original wiring diagram and my modifications to it to this post.


Thanks in advance,
Samuele

What do you have in the bridge position?  I'm guessing the issue is the polarity of the bridge pickup not matching

The bridge pickup is the original strandberg pickup that came with the guitar.

For now the guitar seems to work properly but I don't know if the way that I've used to reverse the phase of the bridge PU is right.
