Humbucker Wiring Choices


Recommended Posts

Going to be wiring two humbuckers soon,

Can anyone explain what -if any- difference these two wiring diagrams would make.


These aren't my drawings there from seymour duncans website,although i modified no.2

which is from guitar electronics site. So all credit to them.

sorry about the external link but i wasn't sure how to add a picture .

The way #2 is wired, the cap is grounded at both ends - the ground should hook up to the pot case, not the lug. Fix that, and you've got identical circuits for all intents and purposes. Since the cap and the pot are in series, it doesn't matter which order they are in - I usually prefer the first method (easier for me to wire reliably - no idea why :D ), but almost everybody else uses the second, so do whichever is easiest for you.
