Is this wiring possible?
« on: April 29, 2019, 01:14:41 PM »
Hi,

I am somewhat new to guitar wiring and modding but here it goes:

I am currently working on a Fender Squire fitted with a humbucker in the bridge and a single coil pickup in the neck. My idea is to install a push/pull switch for splitting the coils of the humbucker, however, I would add an additional switch in order to choose which pickup is active.

So when the push/pull is down, the humbucker is normal and the switch does nothing. But when it is up, the coils become split and then you choose which coil you wish to use (i.e. North coil only/South coil only) using the switch. Ideally, I would want the switch to be an on/on switch with no middle position, so the push/pull would basically act as the middle position on the switch when down.

This would then go to a 3-way pickup selector switch allowing you to have multiple combinations of sounds with the pickups.

I'd imagine this would be quite a complex wiring situation but I'm willing to give it a go if it is possible!  :cheesy:


Sorry if I've explained this poorly.


Thanks for any help and advice!

It's definitely doable and not that hard.   This diagram is easily modded for it https://www.bareknucklepickups.co.uk/upload/support/20_132fcee.pdf
So many pickups, so little time
