So I'd like an ok on this variation. Basically, instead of the "bridge on in series" Switch it's an on/on/on switch (the type where one throw from either pole is selected in the middle position, not all throws) to select either bridge on in series, stock or bridge on in parallel. Have I done this right?
Appologies if I'm commiting some kinda copyright doodah.
Looks like it will work as intended, assuming the left bottom and right top are the ones connected in the middle position.
It does raise the question we've seen before, though: What happens when one pickup is both in series and parallel with another? Do the higher frequencies bypass the second coil since inductance makes that a less "convenient" path?
I also think this should work fine. The obvious thing to check is that the on/on/on is the right way round, and i think you have it correct. In the middle position, the poles are connected down-up, left to right
This design is similar to one we have last week, where at the suggestion of mr sooty, i sketched a similar idea with the on/on/on doing neck-on instead of bridge on:
If you are happy with the neck and middle separate tone controls, Id just wire them directly to those pickups instead. Alternatives that are possible include a bridge control and a neck.middle control, or a master tone control only, or, my favorite, a master tone based on 'Red Rhoads' where in series mode, the neck and middle pups get bypassed by a cap inly when the tone is at max.
Most of the time, we have someone come in and resurrect a thread that's old, anywhere from 6 months to 2 or 3 years. But you, oh no, you gotta come in after 4 years and resurrect your account. That's gotta be some kinda record, I should think. ;D
Now we know why I don't delete old accounts that show no activity for months or years - you never know when someone will drop in outta the clear blue, and we wouldn't wanna make them sign up all over again.... that'd be bad manners.
Welcome back, pardner, hope you can stick around again!
