I don't think I have any one diagram for all the mods I'd like to try on my LP copy, so I may end up using several different "maps" to get where I wanna go. I think I saw a similar thread not long ago, possibly about wiring DiMarzios. Of course I can't find that now, so would somebody give me a quick tutorial on the differences between the switch shown in www.seymourduncan.com/support/schematics/hum_vol_tone-w-sers_para.html and that shown on the right-hand side of Wolf's www.1728.com/humbuck5.gif? I know the visual differences, but I'm just trying to figure out the pros and cons of one method over the other. (Given a choice, I would probably go with a GN design.)
Is it possible (or practical) to add another on/on/on toggle for the neck pup (series/parallel/shunt), plus one for series/parallel/out-of-phase for the pair? (I have other plans for the four push/pull pots, and am running out of room for toggles, so probably won't try to have an option for any pup out-of-phase with itself.) The toggles might simplify my life by taking the place of the 6-way rotary I was thinking about before. It seems to me that it's kinda like the Tone Monster, with one less pickup but more possible ways to use each pup.
Would an on/on/on work for both pups parallel out-of-phase/in phase/series out-of-phase? (Not to throw in another switch or anything, but . . .) Is it possible to wire it so that the center position would be the in-phase setting? Would the three-way (pup selector) work with a single "phasing" switch for neck, bridge, or both? Is this more questions than anyone's asked in one post in recent memory?
Yes, I have way too much time on my hands, but this stuffkeeps me off the streets and (mostly) out of mischief. ;D
For one thing, you are just linking to a graphic on my website. Some website owners get angry at that sort of thing, but when it's a message board I try to allow a little leeway. Anyway, did you just find that graphic? Did you go to this page www.1728.com/guitar.htm and read the entire section about humbucker wiring? It's late so I really can't think too well at the moment. Anyway, look at that article again. Incidentally, I prefer my switching a humbucker to that of the Seymour Duncan method because I think it is easier. Also it looks neater when drawn.
