A year or so ago I built a strat and gave it to a friend for Christmas. I did a pretty shoddy job wiring it up (pulled pickups out of my drawer, spliced wires together and made it all work). It works but it isn't pretty. So I told him I'd like to rewire it when he comes back this way this summer. He's down but he wants to add a humbucker to the neck position. I said no problem. The original wiring has the 'activate bridge' mod with a push/pull pot on the the volume, and he doesn't really want to give that up. I tossed out the idea of coil splitting the humbucker. The solution I came up with (and there could be a better one) was to make the first pot be a push/pull volume for the neck humbucker. The second pot would be a push/pull volume for the middle bridge, and the pull position would activate the bridge pickup in any position. The third pot is master tone. I've never done a coil split before so I'm a bit confused on how all of that works, but I'm pretty sure this setup does all that. Trouble is, when my friend brings his guitar to town in June and I strip it apart, route out a swimming pool route and do all of this wiring only to find something doesn't work, I won't exactly have time to diagnose and fix it, especially if I'm starting with a flawed diagram. Any input is definitely welcome. This should be a fun little project.
