2 Humbuckers 5waySW wiring, out of phase - question
« on: February 15, 2011, 09:59:46 PM »
Hi,
I got riffraff for neck and crawler for bridge.
and i want to configure for wiring using 1V 1T and 5way SW like this:

1.Bridge Humbucker
2.Both PU inner coil tap out of phase
3.Both Humbucker parallel
4.Both PU inner coil tap parallel
5.Neck Humbucker

Is that possible with only 5way SW?

Thanks,

Twinfan

You can probably do it with a superswitch?

Do you really want two single coils in parallel out of phase
It will sound thin and weedy like it's being played through a small transistor radio.....
Or do you mean "out of phase"  how folks describe the sound of a strat in position 2

You may need to reverse the polarity of the neck pickup to get position 4 to be hum cancelling

A regular 5 way wont do this wiring

Thanks for replying guys.

i will use superswitch, and i know sound of "out of phase".
and i want to know how to get "out of phase" sound only position on 2.
3 and 4 is normal "in phase" sound.
thats what is very complicated wiring for me... :(

anyone know is there any link for diagram for this wiring??

To me it looks like you want to emulate the old PRS wiring but using a 5-way switch instead of a rotary. If I remember correctly the old PRS out-of-phase wiring used the full humbuckers in series.

Have a look near the bottom of this page to see if it helps:

I remeber getting a phone call from a luthier mate about super switches.  It went someting like "Ahhhh, WTF is going on, I'm never using one of these feckin things again, who's stupid feckin idea was this anyway".  He went on for about five minutes and then hung up.... wiring isn't his favorite thing  :lol:

You can use the Megaswitch P to get PRS settings.  It is really easy.  I only use the superswitch for really strange mixes (series/parallel/spilt combos!).
So many pickups, so little time

Thanks, this is almost my prefer setting. but this reverse phase setting is all other combinations are series, not parallel.
thats what i want to figure out...

megaswitch also seems great idea, can i configure my prefer setting with this?
