Dimarzio Wiring Help Please


Recommended Posts


Although I'm ok with a soldering iron I'm rubbish at getting diagrams right.

Guitar as follows:

FRED in neck

Tone Zone in bridge

3-way toggle

1 volume (push/pull)

1 tone (standard)

I want to wire the controls so the 3-way toggle will give me neck-both-bridge and I can then use the push/pull volume to coil tap the pickups.

I've thought about it as logically as I can (my brain hurts now) and I've put the following diagram together:


Would someone with a better understanding than me be able to confirm if this looks correct before I heat up the iron? :D

Many thanks for any help

I think you missed connecting something to your push-pull switch as only the common pole lugs have any connection - that being the series link.

Depending on how you want the switch to work - one pair of lugs - either the top or bottom, needs to be connected. Either to ground or the hot side of the volume control - depending also on which coil you want to short out and which coil you want to sound when in split coil mode.

Put all your grounds to one common point ie your tone pot. Run the bridge ground and add a switch ground to this common point.
