How Do I Wire This 3-way Strat Style Switch?


Recommended Posts

I'm doing 2 HBs, 1 Vol., 1 Tone, 3 way switch.

It has no numbers on it, so the ones I found weren't very helpful and the diagram that came with the PU's is for a stock Strat switch.



I hope someone can help me!


Or does the switch simply get wired like here, just that on my switch all the soldering joints are facing one side, instead of left and right???

You can mostly picture how it works from looking at it. Most probably, the two centre lugs are the poles and get joined together and go to the volume pot. The three outer lugs on each end are as the three other lugs on each side of the wiring diagram.

Or another way to look at it. Number lugs 1 to 8 left to right

1 and 2 go to bridge pup 4 and 5 go to volume pot, 7 and 8 go to neck pup

With lever pushed to the right, it will be selecting neck only

It doesnt matter which side of the switch you are looking at when you read the above.
