mingus Posted June 14, 2006 Report Share Posted June 14, 2006 I have been trying to find a 4 pole, 5 way switch but have found them to be very scarce and fairly expensive. I am after a prs style setup. On further investigation into other wiring methods to avoid using one i found this diagram, which seems to give the same functions as **this** (both of these are from http://www.geocities.jp/dgb_studio/index_e.htm) These have the same description in terms of the pup combination at each switch position, i.e. No PU 1 PU1AxPU1B Neck Humbucker 2 PU1A Neck Tap 3 PU1AxPU1B+PU2CxPU2D Humbucker Parallel 4 PU2C Bridge Tap 5 PU2CxPU2D Bridge Humbucker My question is, if the 2 pole switch can provide the same functionality as the 4 pole, why do people use the 4 pole switch? If it can't, what is the difference between these 2 circuits? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
