Wiring a push-pull pot to switch from bridge/neck pickup??
I want to put together a super clean looking guitar and have been batting around the idea of using a push-pull volume pot to switch the pickup from the bridge to the neck pickup, since I don't use the middle position ever and I love how my COW looks with pretty much no controls.
In theory I think I could use a push-pull pot to switch pickups... but how? Any input would be mega appreciated
there are two rows of 3 poles on the push/pull switch pot. each row of 3 are just like the three poles on a standard 3-way toggle switch. wire your bridge to the bottom, and your neck to the top, and connect the middle to the volume pot.
the green symbols are grounds. this way, pushed will be bridge, pulled will be neck
now, do you have 4 conductor humbuckers, or 2? what brand are they?
looks like, for series connection (gives a fatter sound with higher output than parallel) you'll want to solder together the White and Red, solder the Green to the grounding shielding, and connect the Black to the contacts i have listed in my diagram.
