    :?: I have a 1997 CS "American Classic" Tele that came from the factory with three pickups. I cannot find a wiring diagram for it anywhere. I looked at Mr. Gearhead and do not see a tele with the 5 way switch with 4 lugs on each side. And all the Strat wiring diagrams I have looked at all have 3 pots instead of 2 (tone-vol.) Does anyone have a correct wiring diagram for this guitar? Thanks.

    How is it supposed to work?

    A regular 5-way has four lugs...

    If you want bridge - bridge/middle - middle - middle/neck - neck, you would just wire it like a strat, but come off your volume pot, a la a regular tele, for the tone.

    If this is what you want, I can draw it out for you....

    There is an American Deluxe wiring diagram at Mr. Gearhead with 3 pups and a mini-toggle....

    Sounds good.

    Thanks for the reply. A diagram would be very helpful. On the switch that came out of the tele originally, there is a jumper from lug 4 on the side the pups hook to, over to lug 1 on the other side.
