    (long) Greetings! This is my first post here. My actual question is in the 3rd paragraph below. :) On my G&L Bluesboy I've replaced the stock bridge & it's 6 brass saddles with a heavy Gotoh bridge from Stew Mac b/c when I got it as a SDOTD from MF it was the twangiest twang that ever...

    Incoming NWD (new wiring day)

    Hi. Decided I want the parallel / series option for my MIJ Tele. However, I don’t like the idea of a 4-way switch, and I do like the idea of flipping one toggle regardless of the switch setting to get series wiring. So decided to do it via mini toggle. Could have just gotten the dpdt switch...

    Tele 3-way import switch and DPDT for series...

    Hello, I have searched the Internet and have found several circuit diagrams for adding a DPDT (either a toggle or as a push/pull pot) to be used to create a series connection with a 3-way selector switch. The problems is that all the diagrams that I've found show a CRL/Fender 3-way style and...

    Series wiring, but neck into bridge

    Hi there. I've done some experiments using alligator clips and it seems that wiring the neck pu into the bridge has a more midrange-forward sound (which I enjoy) than the "usual" bridge-into-neck series configuration. Any ideas on how this could work with a 3-way switch? I guess I could start...

    Help with dummy coil, 3-way switch and series wiring

    Hi. After a somewhat failed wiring mod attempt, I thought it'd make sense to ask knowledgeable people how to actually do this properly. While upgrading the pickups on a cheap Tele squier I'm using as a testbed, I thought about making a dummy coil from the old bridge pickup and install it, so...

    3-way switch wired for series and parallel?

    Hello, I'm wondering if it's possible to wire a 3-way so that you have [bridge > both parallel > both series] to keep the middle position as parallel but replace the neck only position with both in series. All the other schematics I can find on here or the internet have series in the middle and...

    Telecaster Wiring in Series

    I would like to wire my new telecaster pups (both single coil) to have a 4th position, both pickups in series. I would like to use a toggle switch dedicated to the series position only and leave the 3 way switch alone. I don't want to be confused by a 4 way switch and would only occasionally be...

    Convert wrhb to parallel coils

    I've been looking around and can't find exact info on how to do this or if it even works. I'm a novice at guitar electronics but I've been experimenting with the reissue 'wide range' humbuckers in my thinline 72. I've done the fralin mod and removed all the hidden poles under the cover. Sounds...

    Series wiring help!

    I got a Sigler 920D pre-wired control plate with 3-way switch and a push-pull tone pot to give me series when it's pulled out (with the switch in the middle position I assume). I am using a standard Tele bridge pickup and a reverse-wound uncovered neck pickup. Here's my problem: the Sigler...
