i just got a free guitar but neads wireing the top pickup is a dimazio super distortion with green and bair solderd togeather blue red yellow and the bottom humbucker is a kent armstrong mhro-1 with bair white green red and black wires there is 2 volume 2 tone a rythem and treble 3 way switch and 1 2way switch and 2 3way switches heres the chalange
i want the 2 way switch to be on off so off its hw the guitar should be but on uses the 2 3way switches i want the 1 3way fort each pickup with the switch set as humbucker coile shunt (single coile) and coile reverce
the guitar is a columbus looks like the 1 slash plays out of guns and roses its partly wired but some wires have come off and the neck isnt attached and there is a crach in the head stock i have done furniture making site and bench joinery so be verry simple to fix but the wireing is way past my skills
as you can see in this pic there is 3 switches extra on this guitar i want to put them to use to alter the sound of the pickups any help would be grate
the switches are a 2 way switch and 2 3way switches
i have done a coile shunt to turn a humbucker into a single but i was told u can do something calld coile reverce so the humbucker is reverced
The only thing "reversed" that comes to mind with a humbucker is reverse phase. If that's what you're trying to do then you will need (correct me if I'm wrong, guys) a double pole switch. I'm not sure how many poles your switches have, but it is not necessarily the same as the number of switch positions.
As an added note, the sound you would be getting by reversing the phase of the two coils of the same HB might not be that desirable, because the closer the two out-of-phase pups are to each other, the quieter they will be, and I'm not talking about hum!
As long as you've got all those switches there anyway, you could add one more and have a an LP with all the features of the Jimmy Page model, specifically: coil cut on both HB's, series/parallel switching, and in/out of phase switching. Or I'm sure somebody here is smart enough to get some PRS sounds out of the stuff you've already got there. Either way it sounds like your pickups are up to the task, since they have four conductors.
can someone post simple to follow wireing diograms for 2 tone 2 volume 2 three way switches 1 two way switch and a 3 way rithem and treble switch i have seen this but i cant work it out with the switches insted of push pull www.gibson.com/Files/schematics/pagewiring.pdf will i nead to add some more switches because there is 4 push pull pots
the wire colours i have are theneck pickup dimizio blue red bair green yellow the bridge kent armstrong white black red green bair
