Before I Draw Up A Schem.....

Recommended Posts

Is this all right? Instead of asking someone else to do this for me I've decided to do it myself, I just want someone to check it over before I start.

I have an Epiphone Special II. I want to place a blend pot where the tone knob currently is, I want to place a series/parallel switch where the pickup selector is and I want to place an in phase/out of phase switch where the volume knob is, essentially im redoing the entire electronics of the guitar.

Can you have a series/parallel and a phase switch in the one guitar?

The series/parallel switch will control the bridge pickup.

Firstly though a question. Im looking at this site http://www.guitarelectronics.com/category/...iniswitchusage/ and it says that for series/parallel and phase switching you use an on/off/on switch. What happens when the switch is in the off position, Is there no sound? If this is the case can I just use a straight on/on

The diagrams themselves that I am looking at are here http://www.guitarelectronics.com/category/...ckerwiringmods/

Or would this work?

Since my hosting isnt working..... I have the humbucker 5 way rotary switch here http://www.guitarelectronics.com/category/...ckerwiringmods/

Which then goes to a blend pot , First schem on this page http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Electronics,_p...37.html#details

Then to a 500k log pot for volume.

I will most likely use this setup. My main concern is whether or not the switch, The blend pot and the rotary switch will fit throught the top of an Epiphone.

Any thoughts on that one?
