mushy the shroom Posted August 10, 2006 Report Share Posted August 10, 2006 Hey guys, I feel kind of stupid asking this, as it's probably really obvious, but I can't find the solution anywhere. Plus I took a class in electronics last year. But here goes: I am planning on wiring a two-humbucker guitar, with one master volume, one master tone, and a five position rotary switch. It's this kind of switch, only with fewer poles (actually only two, as it will simultaneously control fret marker colors). I want a rotary switch so I can put a knob on it and it will look uniform with the tone and volume.. shouldn't be much more trouble to turn it. I want the positions to map as follows (from left to right positions, or vice-versa, doesn't really matter): Kill Switch (I guess, just wire to ground, easy enough?) Neck Humbucker Only Both Humbuckers in Parallel Bridge Humbucker Only Kill Switch (why not?) Now ordinarily I would know how to wire it with a Les Paul type switch, like this, but with a rotary switch, I have no idea how to get the two in parallel for the middle position (the Les Paul switch appears to work differently, like with leaf type internals). Anyone help? Am I a complete dolt or is this really easy? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
