Blend Pot Coil Tap

Recommended Posts

I'm struggling to work out the wiring for a blend pot coil tap like the new Vintage Advance guitars have.

I'm thinking basically a PRS McCarty style set up, that is master vol, master tone, 3 way toggle switch then instead of the push-pull tone pot an extra pot where coil tap can be blended in from fully on to fully off.

Any ideas how the vintage wiring works?

If you're wanting both pickups to be coil taped then you'll probably have to buy a dual pot (one with two 'bodies' but only a single shaft) something like this:


those are available from axesrus.co.uk (on this page about 3/4 of the way down) for £4 :D including P&P

then wire it like this for each humbucker on each body of the pot:


:D hope that makes sense
