Humbucker Wiring Thingy


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been listed before, i tried serching but nothing really answered my question

I've got a humbucker a 3way switch and a volume pot. I've heard that u can get a humbucker so that just the just the front half is on or just the back half and then both, soz don't know the technical talk... so i was hoping for this kind of set up, any ideas on how i would do this, and a wiring diagram would be great if any1 has one at all. Cheers in advanced! Noddy :D

Yes, if your pickup has 4-conductor wiring and you have a SPDT on-off-on switch (aka single-pole, double-throw, center off).

Here's a schematic: dual-split humbucker

(Note that the shield wire (bare - if you have one) also connects to ground, and the color codes are based on Seymour Duncan - others may vary.)

Seymour Duncan has an extensive library of wiring diagrams here (although they don't have the exact one you described): SD schematics
