Wiring Diagram


Recommended Posts

I drew up this diagram for my next build and I was wondering if this would work right. Yes, I know the grounds arn't all there, I'm just wondering if I have everything with the switchs right.

That way I'll have an on-on-on switch for the neck and bridge pickups to switch between series/split/parrallel and a on-off switch for each pickup to turn it off. Am I missing something here? Don't the SPST's have to be grounded?

Since your SPST's only deal with hot leads, there's no ground connection. You could accomplish the same thing (choosing neck or bridge or both in parallel) with a single Gibson-style pickup selector switch. I would go this route to have as few controls as possible on the guitar.

So have a 3-way switch then two DPDT to control Series/Parrallel/Splits?

Right... because the Gibson 3-way offers A on, A and B in parallel, and B on. You have on/off for A and on/off B, and when both are on the pickups are in parallel. So actually, your setup has one more option... both pickups off. That could be useful for a kill switch, except you would potentially have to flick two switches instead of one or just spinning the volume knob.
