John Abbett Posted December 12, 2008 Report Share Posted December 12, 2008 Guys/Gals. I wired my newest guitar using this diagram. It's Exactly wired like this: http://www.guitarelectronics.com/product/WDUHH3T2206 It's two HB with a push pull on one tone to coil tap both HB. Everything works. It's really clean and organized. The problem is this. The HB I bought from Guitar fetish are a neck and bridge combo. They are wired the same, but the posts are reversed. One side has screw posts and the other is blank posts. On the second HB it's reversed the Screw Posts are on the opposite side of the HB and the blank posts are hidden under the cover. + is screw posts, 0 is blank posts under the cover. Neck HB + + + + + + 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Bridge HB 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 + + + + + + The wiring is the same for both HB. So I pull the single coil switch, and both pickups go to single coil. The problem is it's the bottom half of the HB in both cases. That's great for the bridge pickup. The + posts work great, great volume, etc. The Neck pickup is split and is using the blank posts, which are under the cover and I have a large volume loss. I need to figure out how to coil split the neck pickup and leave the top half of the HB active. My HB wiring is like this: Neck: Start - Black = Ground + + + + + + End - White Start - Green = + 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 End - Red Bridge: Start - Black = Ground 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 End - White Start - Green = + + + + + + + End - Red Red and white are connected, and go to the coil cut switch. In the example above if you connect red and white and ground them, it bypasses the bottom HB. It does the same on the other HB, but that's not the half I want to cut. I want to cut the other half. The other hb is the same wiring, just the + and 0 are reversed. I thought about how to do this, and I don't want to reverse the polarity of the two HB. If I just reverse the wiring on the HB that is wrong, when I'm in the middle possition in HB mode, the two pickups will be out of phase. Any suggestions? I think I've got a pretty good handle on this, but just don't see an answer. -John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
