hessodreamy Posted August 17, 2004 Report Share Posted August 17, 2004 Hi I've been making some alterations to the setup on my strat. This has brought about some unexpected effects and if there's anyone out there who's good at this kind of thing it would be great if you could let me know what I've done wrong and how I put it right. The diagram is below. (If it doesn't show and you think you can help I'll be happy to Email it to you) Switch S1 puts the Middle & Neck pickups in series by routing the neg of the neck from ground (Standard parallel setting) instead to the hot of the Middle pickup (Series setting). switch s2 reverses the phase of the bridge pickup by routing the hot out and neg out of the pickup to (respectively) a hot out/ ground (normal phase) or ground/hot out (reverse phase) Switch S3 is a coil tap. it optionally connects the link wire between the 2 coils on the humbucker to ground, shorting one of the coils. Switch S4 is the 'bridge pickup always on' switch. It takes the hot out which has come from S2 and routes it to either the Bridge lug on the 5way selector (normal setting) or to the output of the 5 way (always on). The problem is that S4 has the hot routed always to the output lug no matter what it is switched to (multimeter shows no resistance between the opposing connectors on the switch) Also, when S2 is switched to reverse phase there is no output from the guitar at all. Thanks for looking. This setup could be really cool if I get it to work! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
