Custom Wiring Help!


Recommended Posts

What do you want the other two positions of the switch to do? Both pickups on for both positions (you can just use the volumes for pickup selection), or are you looking to do something fancier? What I just described is pretty simple, but it seems like a waste when you have the other position to work with. Check out this website:


It's got everything you need to cobble together some anything but the most absurd wiring configurations.

On my first electric I soldered a wire to the copper shielding and joined all the earths from pickups, toggle switch, and output jack to it. The pots are earthed from contact when mounted up.

Works well although If the case of the pot ever oxidizes after many years it may cause earthing problems, so my builds since then I solder them to the pots as is the norm.
