My big question in trying to land on the holy grail of select wiring diagrams is what is up with the allegience to the 5 way strat switch? Leo (RIP), who did not play guitar, thought 3 was enough. Then the 5 way gets produced because so many guitarist discovered and demanded the "in between" positions. But 5 is so limited. So many diagrams and schematics continue to rely on that antiquated. limited, Amish device.
Imagine a guitar with 3 4lead humbuckers. The equivalent of 9 distinct pickups (Series/Parellel/Single) and the configurations and combos with series/parallel and in/out of phase. My head hurts.
I have a chambered figured walnut Strat replacement body project "in the oven" that is exactly this. Well, actually it uses DiMarzio Multibuckers that are four disparate coils each ('cuz I modified them).
But then again, I suffer from compulsive wiring dementia ;D
Yeah, that link has some serious stuff. I downloaded and printed all of it about a year ago and it filled two 3 inch binders. I haven't looked at all of it yet because, well, my head hurts.

If click on the 'Wiring' and then scroll down, you'll find a LC calculator, GEQ, 2 Band EQ.... he's got lot's of good stuff on that link
The only problem is if you want to show everyone a schem, you can't link it directly to the page, it always goes back to the home page. So you would have to reference it instead ie see 3S14 wiring every serious guitar nut should have that page bookmarked
If you look at the link itself by right-clicking and selecting Properties, towards the end you'll find a "pound sign" (or "the number sign", if you wish) - that's HTML-speak for "bookmark within this page". It usually shows up on the address bar, after being clicked, but that's according to the browser. Which of course explains why you couldn't just copy the correct address from the address bar in the first place.
Instead, you can just copy that address to the Clipboard by using Right-Click and selecting something like Copy, or Copy Address, or Copy Shortcut, whichever is appropriate for your OS. You can then paste that into your Post, and the reader will be whisked to exactly where you intended for them to go.

Rule #1: All Lives Are Final. Make sure that the life you have just been issued is appropriate for your needs, before departing the womb.
Rule #2: In case you don't like the life you have, see Rule #1.

No longer necessary. Nor are the many times you and others have linked to that site, when it fit within the context of a particular thread. Since sbgodofmetal has bumped this thread, that link is now safe, no longer in danger of being lost!!! Don't you dare rain on his parade.
What I was saying was the address doesn't change no matter where you are on his web page. I'm using Foxfire...
This is because the page is using FRAMES. The FRAMES tag locks the Main URL and feeds other URLs into a targeted frame. Granted, this style has gone out of fashion over the years, but this is a GEOCITIES page. Be happy someone took the time to keep this one up.
