    As in special needs.

    i bought a set of modern 6 hums, and for the life of me i cant wrap my thick dome around how to wire them up, as i cant find a diagram that suits exactly how i want them. they came with a diagram that shows a LP configuration with three way switch. ive found a couple others, and fishman even sent me a few others, but not exactly what i need. theyre going into a guitar that has 1 volume, 1 tone, and a three way. i was thinking lose the tone knob and make it 2 volumes, or maybe just 1 volume, with a three way switch. ive wired pickups before but have always had an exact diagram. any suggestions? thanks guys

    Is this the wiring diagram?

    For two volumes just leave off the yellow wire connecting pot 1 to pot 2, and the yellow wire connecting pot 3 to pot 4. Make sure you still ground pot 1 housing to the sleeve of the output jack. Then you can just ignore pots 3 and 4 on the diagram.

    Then you can either wire the voices to push/pull volume controls or DPDT switches, in exactly the same way as the switch is wired in the pic above.

    Yes that is the diagram that comes with the set. After further consideration, I am going with 1 volume and a three way switch. Fluence sent me this diagram, 618CE933-8A5A-43D4-8EDC-B1DD5E3EBDF9.jpeg Just have to figure out the switch part. Can a bridge ground be copper wire?
