Has anyone got the wiring diagram for this guitar; especially the cap values? There were some rather unique things going on with this, and when I upgraded the pups to some GFS "Hot Lipsticks" and a std three-way, I managed to destroy all that, and I've regretted it ever since. I usually love the stuff GFS has, but this particular experiment ended poorly. The main reason I started this was because the toggle switch went to hell, but I can see now that I should have left the rest well enough alone. Help! *MODS* could you please put this in the "other guitars, other instruments" section? Thanx!:oops:

I looked around the web a bit, maybe try this one from Seymour Duncan's site. Hope it helps.

Thanx for that; it's helpful, but specifically, I'm looking for a cap combo that it had: one square green one commonly found on chinese guitars in combination with a tubular resistor with colored stripes. I believe they were wired in tandem but not sure, and not sure what circuit they completed, either. It had a lot to do with the way that thing sounded, and without it, it just ain't the same.:sad:

Looked on their site-there's this. Can anyone decipher what's going on with this one? It has a "tone switch" which is generally the feature I'm looking for.

It appears that when the p/u selector is in the center position (both p/u on) that the p/u's are wired in series at that time versus parallel. The last diagram you posted would probably work for the cap values, but you could use other values to fine-tune your sound if you'd like. Looks like a 27k and a couple of 1meg resistors on the diagram.
I found this review which talks of the series wiring, scroll down almost to the bottom, paragraph titled "Performance & Playability". Maybe might help.

It doesn't get much better than this:
