Hi there - I'm also about to attempt a four-way switch install (my first mod so a bit of a newbie).
Thanks for the really good thread.
Newbie question: I've got a few questions regarding upgrading pots and capacitors. What's good etiquette, post questions and pictures here, or start a new thread?
The image of the wiring looks wrong. Hear me out and look at the attached image I'm posting with my response. I superimposed the Six String wiring diagram next to your actual wiring for reference. Some of the connections are a bit hard to see, so if you got the switch wiring right, sorry if I couldn't make it out from the photo you supplied. Thanks for doing that.Hi, I’m Dave from the UK.
I am currently building my first partscaster and have a query that I was hoping someone may be able to assist with in the wiring a 4 way switch. I decided to opt for a 4 way switch to go with some twisted tele pickups. I am following the diagrams for the alternative switch design from Six String Supplies. I seem to be getting the neckmoickup up and running for position 1, and position 3 seems to switch in the neck pickup, but nothing from the bridge pickup, but does seem to create a lot of him/buzz. I’ve tried to follow back the wires and check them but can’t see any issues and I’m now getting a bit stumped with what to try next.
Any ideas ?
