versaln Posted February 12, 2005 Report Share Posted February 12, 2005 Hi there guys. I've been doing a lot of research lately, trying to make my guitar "be all it can be." I came upon a diagram of the Jimmy Page wiring scheme, and thought I would add to it. Basically, what I am trying to do to my 2 humbucker, 2 knob guitar (schecter c1 classic) is: -one ON/ON/ON switch to put the neck pickup (a seymour duncan jazz) in series/split/parallel -one ON/ON/ON switch to do the same to the bridge (a seymour duncan JB) -change neck volume out with push/pull to wire both pickups together in series/parallel -change tone to bridge volume, push/pull, reverses phase of bridge pickup -one ON/OFF/ON switch to add the "strawberry ice" mod to the guitar I am also doing treble bleed mods to both volumes and I am changing the stock 5-way blade switch to a 3-way blade. Now, after doing some extreme research, and head-scratching, I came up with a wiring scheme for all this. The only problem I am having there is I don't know how to wire the 3-way blade, but that doesn't even matter. Sooooo, I take my wiring schematic to the local guitar store (I live in Kansas City), which is basically the ONLY guitar store around, and ask to talk to the guitar tech, thinking he could maybe "proofread" my schematic, and give me some pointers. Well, he told me that there was no such thing as an on/on/on switch, he didn't know what a push/pull pot was, and he told me that the strawberry ice would never work. I wish I'd taken the push/pull pots with me, I could've blown his mind......anyways, That guy is useless. So I went to radio shack, bought a soldering iron, some solder, some spare wire, thinking what the hell, I'll do it myself........right........ I cannot solder worth anything. My hands are too big, too shaky, my eyesight it too bad.....blahblahblah.......suffice it to say I will never be able to do this myself. Well, I've had my guitar all torn apart for about a week now, and that is my only guitar, so I am sick of the whole thing....I still want to do it, cause it'll be cool, but I want someone else to do it......which brings me to the point. If I can find a decent guitar tech to do all the wiring/soldering for me, how much do you think they would charge, considering I have all the parts. AND If I can't find anyone around here to do it, do you think I could send it somewhere and have them do it? Anyone on here live near Kansas? Thanks for reading my long post, hope someone can help me! Todd by the way, I don't know if everyone knows what the Jimmy Page wiring is, but basically it takes two humbuckers and lets you get 21 tones from them. Sure, most of them are very similar. Well, my way of doing it would give you 40 different tones, or 120 if you count the strawberry ice settings. Sure, most of them will be similar, but how awesome is that?! 120 sounds from two humbuckers........now if only I could wire the damn thing. Anybody want the schematic?
