triryche Posted March 7, 2006 Report Share Posted March 7, 2006 I'm new to this forum and very happy to have found it. Now then, you know I didn't just come here to sing praises...I must want SOMETHING. HELP! Let me preface this by saying that I generally do my own pickup wiring. However, all my electrics are configured the same, more or less: bridge humbucker, neck single coil, master volume, no tone, and a 3-way switch, either strat or LP style......my two main guitars, a Warmoth soloist and Peavey Vandenberg are wired this way. It's simple, it's clean, and it makes sense to my small mind (after having our bass player explain it to me 300 times). Recently, I got a good deal on a Washburn CS-780 (Korean, but highly underrated), and bought some pickups to replace the stock ones. The problem is, this guitar is wired a bit differently, so when I opened up the insanely small control cavity (I have never seen one this small!!!!), my head almost exploded. It's a H-S-H config, but it's a 5-way switch with master volume and tone, and the tone knob's a push/pull which coil taps both the neck and bridge. I've purchased DM Evolutions for the neck and bridge, and a DM YJM for the middle (I know that really doesn't matter), and feel like I am in WAY over my head wiring this up. Rather than pass this off to our bass player to do for me (and admit defeat, once again) or give it to a local shop, I would like to ATTEMPT to tackle this myself. I realize I could just dump the push/pull tone for another volume or just leave it as a dummy knob, but now it's personal, dammit! I feel I must conquer this damn guitar! I would like to wire it exactly as it is now just with the replacement p/u's. Browsing this forum a bit, I know there are people on here who would view this project as a joke, and something as easy as tying a shoelace......YOU are who I need! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Just don't flame me and tell me I'm stupid....I already know that.
