Wiring Method Question

SD schematic

They only show one p/u wired for coil splitting. To do both, use a DPDT switch (or push-pull pot) and just wire the 2nd humbucker in the same manner but to the other side of the DPDT switch. This will split them simultaneously. If you want to split them separately, wire the 2nd p/u to a separate DPDT (or SPDT) switch or push-pull pot.

Remember you'll have to make sure your pickups are 4 conductor. Most guitars that don't have coil splits/phasing as standard use 2 conductor wires. You could split the pickup into a 4 conductor if you wanted, but it's a little tricky and quite easy to get wrong.

Good catch :D

If these are the pickups you're getting Bill Lawrence USA then they should come with 4-conductor wiring.

OTOH, if you're going to buy the handmade 500s from Bill and Becky Lawrence ( http://www.billlawrence.com/ ), they'll still come with 4-conductor leads - they'll just sound better! :D

those are the ones im ordering, thats good to know!
