    The sound of pickups is different. I needed to determine this difference. The word "Dark" can be replaced by another word. You can offer your name in the difference of sound.:);)

    You will notice the following changes.
    1. After replacing magnets, pickups began to sound brighter ( effect of adding Treble).
    2. The sound of pickups became dense.
    3. The bass sounds very clearly and dense.
    4. The output of the gauges was increased. At me on amplifiers it is a difference in turn of the knob of the Master for 7-10 minutes.

    The output of the pickups gives a significant change in sound in treble, and neodymium magnets add clean and density to the sound. For this reason, I did not offer magnets for sound Bright.
    You will notice the difference between neodymium magnets and ALNIKO magnets in pickups!

    [​IMG]In this scheme, all you need to do is disconnect the middle pickup switch wire going to the second tone pot at the switch and attach it to the bridge pickup switch's middle lug.
    That will put the bridge on second tone and middle pickup will be volume only. That will increase the middle pickup's brightness and have more Quack for middle/neck and middle/bridge. Bridge pickup will have tone to adjust for darker tone when needed.

    Have you tried a series/parallel switch for these pickups yet?

    It's rather simple actually, each switch just turns its respective pickup on or off.

    OK. Nice, versatile way to select pickup combinations. I guess I need to consider such for one of my Strats. I would like to hear neck & bridge combined - is there great "quack" with that setting?

    So, I'll try to make! Thanks!
    Not yet, I worked only on pickups for the standard scheme!

    Thank you so much!
    Of course not!!! This is not necessarily. I answered Zapfan of answer about the wiring pickups..I'm just using all three pickup trucks. It's very interesting.

    That is the way I have the prototypes in my guitar. Front tone control is on the neck pickup, back tone control is on the bridge and the middle is not loaded by a tone control. I’m also using a 500k volume control but I think I’m using 250k tone controls. I’ll have to pop it off and check. I’ve got to restring it so I’ll do that this weekend and check the tone pots while I’m at it.

    I understand, you've been busy. I'm ordering a pickguard today to mount mine in my H/H Strat with 3 toggles. Middle toggle will have the series/parallel choice, so I'll find out soon enough how they do.:cool::twisted:

    I drilled the holes under the switches in the standard pickguard one day. This is only for mini humbuckers ( cut off coil). Everything here is comfortable and does not interfere with anything. If it is useful, you can use it!

    What are the ideas for using a standard switch and mini-toggle switches? Are there any considerations?
