Schecter Schematic Wrong?


Recommended Posts

Sorry to bug everyone again, im just trying to figure it out.

does anyone think that its odd to have so many groundings to the 5 way switch?

Schecter C-1 classic

Technically, it's not "groundings". Just because a particular color wire is "normally"connected to ground (as in seen that way in other schematics), doesn't mean it's a ground wire. The only "true ground wire" out of a 4 wire humbucker is the fifth bare wire (or shield) that's connected to the case of the pickup.

The pickup switching in the schecter schematic does a combination of coil splitting and series/parallel connections. In order to do this, it requires that both "sides" of the pickup coils be available for re-connection by the switch.
