I'll sticky this for now, but I'll go back and revise it later and have just the diagrams and add them in as they are needed or come around.

Default Ground Problem

Mr. Smarty Pants... You helped me on a diagram a few weeks ago and it really helped me out. The only thing that is left is that I am not sure how to ground everything to the bridge where it doesn't get all of that noise. Do you just solder the ground straight to the bridge? The bridge is a tuno-matic and it's chrome. Thought you might be able to help me out. I made another guitar ... with only one p-90 pickup and hooked it up but it is getting a lot of noise because it's not grounded to the bridge. I don't know how or where I'm suppose to solder the ground wire to it. If you could help me that would be great. Thanks for your help last time again as well.

J

ground = any pot's body to bridge.

Dimarzio and seymour duncan sites have hundreds of wiring diagrams.

I have a Stagemaster HSS configuration with a 5-way switch along witha 3-way mini toggle.

I would like the mini toggle to operate only when the 5-way switch is in position 5 (bridge) and control series, split, and parallel operation.

I would also like the humbucker to auto-split to single coil when in position 4 (bridge + middle), regardless of where the min toggle is set.

I have been through the Duncan site thoroughly, and have found the mini-toggle wiring and the auto split wiring, but not one that combines them.

Is this possibe, and con you point me to or e mail me the wiring diagram for this wiring configuration. repaukert@mmm.com

Thanks!

thanks that's just the kind of info I need but for the washburn eliminator pickup actually just had a look and my idol is wired differently to jeff's diagram . so i'm now really confused.

jeffs mine

red red
black white
green black
white green (earthed)

i actually think mines may have been wired incorrectly coz vcc has been crap from day one . Guess washburn forum is obvious place to ask but there's something messed up with there registration , you get sent a validation link which isn't a valid address. aaargh !!!

tempted just to rip the whole thing out and rewire standard 2 vol 2 tone , push/pull coil tap , vcc really is pants.

Unhappy wiring up question!!!

Hi there, the wiring diagrams are great! I have one for you if you would be so kind!

I have a custom build guitar in which I have a humbucker at bridge and single coil at neck. I want to wire up one volume and two throw switches. The switches i have are dpdt centre off switches with the intention being that I can select either of the pickups individually / turn them off (individually) in the centre position and the switches are non locking in 3rd position so i can use them as temporary on types ( opposite to kill switch). Can you help as I have tried a few times to wire them up but being a noob at the electronics game I cant seem to get it to work without a huge ground loop hum happening!!!

also the pickups only have one black one red wire.

cheers

Hi
Do you have shielding installed in the control cavity? If you don't have something good where all the switches are you have to run a ground wire tying all the controls together. You probably can quiet it by touching one of the switches right? The wiring is pretty straight forward with what you want to do.
Some people like to do a "star" ground where all the grounds run to one spot but just remember everything must be grounded together.
Jon

Il have to run a ground line to all the components as there is no shielding yet. I just need a good clear simple diagram to show me where to wire!

cheers

Jerry hasn't dropped in for a while and I can't draw...
I'm sure you got it, each pickup goes to a switch - in your case both sides of each switch, the centers tie together to the vol pot and then out to the jack.
I'd use the black wires as ground and the red wires as leads. Like I said you have to ground everything together, probably run everything to the back of the vol pot.
Go to the Seymour Duncan site and adapt one of their wiring diagrams if you have to see it.
