This page and those linked to it, are from my old Geocities site and were written between 2005 and 2007, reposted here for reference and safe-keeping. We have all learned a lot more about guitar wiring since then, but I think the information posted is generally still good. Many thanks to reTrEaD and Yogi for reformatting the pages to sit within GN2.

This web site records my personal investigations into guitar wiring, in the hope that they may be of interest to others. The ideas are developed from my own guitar modifications, and study of information available on the internet.
I believe that the information presented here is true, but cannot offer and guarantee! I would be grateful for any opinions or views.
If you have any comments or would like to know more, please reply in the relevant thread.
To access all of the wiring possibilities with humbucking pickups, you need to have connections to each end of each coil. This describes the conversion of open-coil and covered humbuckers to four conductors plus screen.
