donbenjy Posted April 25, 2004 Report Share Posted April 25, 2004 hey, im currently saving (yes saving. im only 15 ) for a seymour duncan bridge hotrail on my strat and wanted a couple of mods added as well. i want to coil tap the p/u and i also want to have all three p.us on at once which would involve new push/pull pots. now, as i have no cash and wouldnt know how to do the mods, im getting it done by a shop and to save on costs, i was wondering whether it would be cheaper to have the 5 way switch re-wired to have (from top to bottom) neck, neck/mid, mid, bridge, all as im not quite sure if i would miss mid/bridge with a hotrail. the main reason i use the mid/bridge selection is to kill the hum, but with a humbucker, surely it wouldn't work as you'd either have two negative coils and one poz or one neg. and two poz coils so there would be a hum...? unless the mixture of on humbucker and a single coil is a good sound or a dpdt knob is cheap to have installed i cant really see the point if im not gonan use it has anyone got this setup that could maybe record all combinations (neck, neck-mid, mid, bridge hum, bridge single, neck-mid-humbucker, neck-mid-single) id be grateful, or if people could just give advice? cheers Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
