i got 2 of these cheapies, hoping they would fit in a guitar i have where the square ones won't fit, rather then chiseling it. i have no idea what they are from, or how to wire them. any clues out there?
Well, if these won't fit, finding the connections with your meter is more of an academic exercise . . .
Any double pole toggle switch can be used in place of the push/pulls. Is the problem that the guitar is too shallow to accept a push/pull pot?
To check your switch with your meter, set it for resistance (Ω) and check each of the lugs to every other one. If the lugs aren't numbered, number them first so you can keep track. Check all with the switch pulled out, and then again with it in. Plot your results on a sheet of paper.
If two lugs are connected, you should see either "0" resistance or a very minimal reading. If the two aren't connected, you should see an "overlimit" reading, meaning (effectively) infinite resistance. This is an "L" on my meter, yours may vary.
well they'll fit one of my other guitars, but at 220k i'll perhaps use it as the tone pot and keep 500k for vol. then again i guess i'll do some fiddling around and see if i want to connect it for tone at all and just keep it for push pull.
