Help wiring a Push/Pull pot with a 12 Pin Switch
« on: June 30, 2017, 04:34:38 PM »
Hey guys, looking for some help wiring a Push/Pull pot on my guitar to split the coils in the up position, my guitar has 2 x Juggernauts, 1 x Volume, 1 x 12 Pin 3-way toggle switch, and a mono jack output. I've tried myself to get things working however keep running into grounding issues among other problems, I'm replacing the stock volume pot with a CTS 500K Push/Pull pot. Been trying to use this as a guide however can't quite get it right. http://www.seymourduncan.com/wiring-diagrams?meta_params=guitar-options,2-pickups,neck-h,bridge-h,1-volume,0-tone,3-way-toggle

Thanks in advance:)

I'd say your first problem is using the Seymour Duncan schematic.  The colour coding of the wires on BKPs is different.  Use the BKP schematic and it should be like wiring any other push-pull pot.  You run the wires to your 12-pin switch the same way as you would normally, as you are using the push-pull to control the coil split.

The green and white wires are only used to wire in a split or series/parallel.  Red is hot and black & bare are the ground

I converted the diagram using the chart on the bare knuckle website, though I don't know If I need to ground the switch to the side as it doesn't have a separate pin to ground to like a les paul style switch.
