I have a Framus Nashville, for many years now, and I never knew the 6-way switch settings for it until recently. The problem I have now is that I believe the outer neck pickup coil is non-functioning (tuning fork test shows no response from that side when the switch setting says it should be on). The wiring is hard to map at the 6-way switch since it is tight in there (and it looks like someone messed with it before I bought the guitar because the workmanship is poor).
Does anyone out there have the wiring diagram for the Nashville (same as the Jan Akkerman from what I understand) that they can post?
I'm assuming my google search turned up the same as yours- zilch. I saw several people asking about a wiring diagram, but none on them got a response. Sydd's right, this may turn out to be an exercise in reverse emgineering.

Thanks for giving it some thought. Yes, I have begun that but the 6-position switch is really hard to see and I am hesitant to take it out in case it proves to be fragile. If I really want to get into it I can totally take the system apart and do a full Steve Austin ...
All of this came from the discovery, using a tuning fork, that the neck humbucker appears to have a nonworking bobbin (outermost). I have never messed with it myself, but the workmanship and condition of the wires near the switch is very poor so perhaps someone fiddled with it before I bought it (cannot imagine why).
Given the complexity, I might try non-invasive techniques at first and see where I get. So far I have traced the pups, where they have a junction point within the cavity to connect to the single cable that goes to the switch cavity, and I have observed the switch position relationship to grounding the connections. It will be a long road ....
