  6. I have a wiring problem I need a solution for and I'm hoping someone can help. I am building an electric Mandolin that I have already purchased a DIMarzio DP 188 and DP 186 for. The problem is I am unsure of how to wire this up the way the owner would like. I am building it for my brother who has some specific ideas of what he wants. I have searched your wiring diagrams, but cannot find one that matches my parts. The 3 way toggle I would like to use for Neck, Neck and Bridge, Bridge selection. The push/pull, I would like to use for a coil tap function for at least one of the pickups. The diagrams I have found show toggle switches, but they don't have 6 lugs like the one I show. I am no wiring guru, so I really need a "paint by numbers" kind of diagram. The entire control section is 1 Push/Pull Vol, 1 Tone, and the three way with 6 lugs. Thanks, Mike

  8. I googled fretboard removal for a project neck I bought , and your site came up. I read through your entire tutorial, and it worked like a charm. Thanks for the info. I just registered and will be reading this forum from now on. Thanks, Mike
