Put my Dimarzio in the Bridge and my 8.03K P-90 in the neck. The Dimarzio has pleased me with the phase reverse switch in the Neck position, so I will try that in the Bridge and see how it sounds with the N+B combo. I just can't get away from a SC in the neck and really like P-90's there, so here it goes.
Any suggested wiring? I have a superswitch already in there. ;D
I decided to copy that diagram, but the #4 bridge parallel has no output. The P-90 is a bit hot, but with a little turn of the volume it sounds good. Tone could probably use a different value cap. The B+N combos are seemless and the P-90 and Dimarzio are a good match.
No output at all implies a double failure at position 4- IOW, there have to be two bad connections for both coils to be silenced. Given that both coils of the bridge are working in other positions, this is strange.
On the lower right-hand pole, the green wire from the bridge pup is connected to lug #4, which is the output for one of the bridge coils at position #4. If that connection is bad, you wouldn't get that coil at #4 even though you'd get it elsewhere.
Similarly, the red wire gets grounded at position #4 on the upper-left pole- via the jumpered-together ground wires. A bad jumper connection to position 4 there would eliminate the other coil in the parallel setting but not affect that coil otherwise.
So, I'd check those 2 connections and perhaps hit them again with your iron. But this is real Murphy's Law stuff!
I am not understanding why the DM diagram says the SC is "reverse polarity". Since the white wire from the SC is the "hot" while the black from the neck is "hot', it looks as if the two pickups are wired permanently OOP- which I assume is not the case.
Do they perhaps mean that the SC is supposed to be a RWRP type, and does DM then simply reverse the wire colors for its RWRP SC pickups? Most mfrs use a different color entirely to designate the RWRP ones.
