    Do you have a schematic to increase the pickup options on a 3 pickup Tele so that the neck and bridge pickups will work together? Can you do this with a push/pull pot in the tone pot position? Please advise. Thanks, Richard

    I have a deluxe players strat that is the MIM,gold trim,sss,etc. It has noiseless, vintage I think, pups and a push,push button.When p/p is pushed in and in 4 position all three pups are on and in 5 position neck and bridge are on. The plan is to put hot noiseless in. Would it be worth it to install a SD hotrail in the bridge and if so, I need a diagram!!! BaDoBa

    I am currently in need of a scematic of the Seymour Duncan Sustainer pup system for a Berney Les Paul style guitar. I am repairing one that someone else has been into first. It has the gold hardware Floyd Rose Style locking tremelo and the Seymour Duncan Sustainer pups. It has two mini toggle switches, a volume control and a tone control. I believe I have the proper jack but I am not sure of this. I can see that one small white wire is not connected to the circuit board but is in the wiring “bundle” in that cluster of wires. The way this person wired it leaves the LED lit constantly until the battery is completely drained and dead. I am quite capable of the soldering etc. necessary to do this repair. I am not a trained electronic technician by any means however I am experienced enough to have not only repaired many guitars, but also have hand made some guitars. I was taught what I know by a highly skilled luthier, now deseased, and have worked in the music store he established in 1947 for the last twenty years and I am fifty seven years old. I am telling you all this so you’ll know that I am not just bored and fooling around. I have just never worked on this particular type setup before and could use a little bit of help. Anything you can tell me or information you may share would be put to good use and greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time, Sam Garb

    HI; looking for Yamaha SG 1500 wiring diagram from ’70′s. specifically output jack, I replaced the original with a single contact arm but the old one seemed to have 2(although soldered together). maybe optional switch built in for other use? with several contacts encased in bakelite which broke from old age. I believe same as gibson sg with 2 tones and volumes, 2 humbuckers with 3 way switch.
    Any help appreciated. Thanks!

    I would like to have information on how to install three [3] single coil pups with no tone controls and a cut-off switch. No pup selector or tone controls, just being able to blend the three pups to the out. I am working on a Dano and the customer wants something different, this should do it. Any help will be of much help. Thank you. Doug D.R.Guitars.

    Ok. So I have this Charvel strat style body with rout for 1 humbucker, and one volume pot. As this is a custom re-build to honor the individual who left it in my care and then died in a horrible car accident, I chose to install a Gibson P-90 dogear p/u, and wanted to add tone for it as well. I have a 5-way inline switch in the body now, but am not totally sure how to wire the switch with 4 progressively different caps. I want position 1 to be raw pickup, but each other position will get progressively bassier. PLZ help.

    One of the pots on the bass guitar in our church band came loose and was turning. We didn’t catch it before it broke 4 wires loose. A schematic for a Yamaha RBX 755A five string bass would really help to get us back up and runnning.

    Hey Danny to let you know the Jeff Beck diagram is in accurate..If you wire it up like you have it the Neck PU won’t work.. The jumper on the switch is the culprit.. Take a look at the diagram on Fender’s website and you will see what I mean.. Hope this helps.. Tony

    I would like to know if its possible to wire concentric stacked pots as vol/master vol or tone/master tone controls. if so how would I do this. I have an Ibanez roadstar505 that has 3 sgl coils,5way switch and 1 vol 1 tone control at the moment. I am trying to get some added flexibilty without drilling new holes in the guitar. If this idea is feasible please let me know where a diagram or a link might be found that would show me how this is done. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks Jim
