    Howdy!

    Requesting some wiring diagram help…

    I’m putting together a partscaster three pickup Tele-style and here’s the wiring I’d like to do utilizing a five-position blade switch. The pickups are a SD stack Tele rhythm in the neck, SD stack Strat in the middle, and a SD Pearly Gates Tele bridge size in the bridge.


    1 - SD stack Tele rhythm
    2 - SD stack Tele rhythm + SD stack Strat, out of phase quack
    3 - SD stack Tele rhythm + SD Pearly Gates Tele bridge to simulate “normal” Tele middle position
    4 - SD stack Strat + SD Pearly Gates Tele bridge, out of phase quack sound
    5 - SD Pearly Gates Tele bridge

    I’d also like to have a push/pull volume pot to switch the Pearly Gates from series to parallel.

    Thanks in advance!

    You’re definitely gonna need a 5 way super switch for that wiring. Google and you’ll find tons of examples of different super switch wiring configurations.

    Define "out of phase quack" Really OoP or just in parallel? Stacks tend not to be as quacky, so your results may underwhelm.

    Have you heard all these combos ? Sometimes its better to clip or temporarily solder combos first. I did a Strat w 28 combos. I used 3 often, 2 more occasionally , and the rest just the first time.

    Assuming the combos are all parallel its an easy scheme. The bridge parallel/series is on the Duncan site and lots of other places.
