    Hello!

    So I have a guitar with a single volume knob and no tone knob and I would like to install my Fishman Moderns on it but I'm pretty lost and intimidated by it... How would i route them to be able to use the push pull feature? The guitar has a 3 way switch and a kill switch. Is there a diagram I could follow? Keep I mind that I'm a complete newbie with soldering and changing pickups. My town does not have a professional available at this time either and I have to do it myself unfortunately.
    I've looked all over the web and I can't find anything that helps.
    Any help would be more than appreciated!

    Unfortunately this doesn't really help because they all contain 1 vol and 1 tone. i wasn't all the functions (minus tone of course) to work on the single volume. i can figure out the killswitch I'm sure. Thank you though

    Is there no way to simply wire both pick ups to the 1 volume knob to get voice 2?

    I believe you can follow the diagrams included inside the box same as this https://d1aeri3ty3izns.cloudfront.net/media/31/318807/download_318807.pdf


    You can more than likely use both diagrams just leave out the tone knob, and instead of grounding the input jack to the tone, ground it to the volume etc.. just leave out the tone knob. I think it should be that simple.. It's only a matter of choosing if you want to voice switch with your 3 way or your push pull

    Route both pickups to the push pull volume switch.
    It’s one one from each pickup that needs to be grounded. That’s it.

    you won’t be able to split. Coils though.
    I advise replacing your 3 way with a super five way. That plus one push pull will give you a lot of options.
