Does anyone know of anyone wiring a guitar with a 2 pole 6 throw switch?
Yes, Gibson uses one in their three pickup SG-3. It selects all possible one of three, and two of three pickup selections in parallel. Fender has also used it. Others have as well.
Or does anyone have any ideas on how to do it?
Yes, pretty much all of them.
I'm using 2 humbuckers.
However, we are not fond a'board of open-ended "fishing expeditions".
I generally will not respond to a routine of protracted dentistry involving the "pulling of teeth" or information.
Significant additional information is required for any meaningful responses. I additionally prefer the bidirectional use of capitalization and punctuation, and rarely respond to queries therewithout, even as I usually know most of the answers. Protocol is. Posting is forever.
At a minimum;
What kind of guitar is it?
How many pickups does it have?
What are the pickups?
How many wires does each have?
What are the volume and tone controls?
What other switches are on the guitar?
And, uh, gee, what are you trying to do with the guitar?
You could use it to choose various combinations of capacitor and inductor and such to create a Varitone type switch.
You could build a stepped blender. I'd think this would work better with an odd number of throws.
I think the first three pickup selections are pretty obvious, no? You could then have the same three selections, but with the 4-wire pickup split.
I'd probably prefer to include the system series option. This limits to an extent what can be done with the last two postions. One could be "half-parallel" - series, with the neck pickup bypassed by a cap. The other could be "half-parallel" with the bridge pickup bypassed, but I don't know how useful that is. Maybe the system parallel with the 4-wire split, instead?
Do you need an "All Off"?
