    I made reality of a wiring scheme I've been thinking of for a while for my Telecaster with traditional style 50's bridge pickup and PAF-style Humbucker in the neck position.

    Here's the wiring:

    Position one gives Bridge Single Coil with tone control,

    two Bridge Single Coil with Humbucker Blend,

    three Bridge Single Coil with Humbucker Blend though a 4n7 capacitor.

    So no Humbucker only???
    I almost never used that in the three years I've had the Humbucker installed.

    And as you all know, the Telecaster bridge pickup is the best of all pickups... so why not always on?:D

    Here's a sound sample:



    1. Bridge pickup only

    2. Bridge pickup with Humbucker 1/2 Blend

    3. Bridge pickup with Humbucker full Blend

    4. Bridge pickup with Humbucker through Cap 1/2 Blend

    5. Bridge pickup with Humbucker through Cap full Blend

    6. Bridge pickup with Humbucker out of phase 1/3 Blend

    7. Bridge pickup with Humbucker out of phase through Cap full Blend

    Bridge pickup with Humbucker out of phase is very thin with 1/2-full blend, could work as a funky rhythm sound though.

    What's the problem with soundcloud links these days? Doesn't work, doesn't work, doesn't work, doesn't work, doesn't work... and then it works???

    Your switching wouldn't work for me, but I'm glad it works for you!
