It is nice to be needed, but the simple fact is there is not often I can offer anything new these days. timtam has largely taken up the mechanical aspects of setup and does a better job regarding offset centric questions than I ever have and a handful of folks have gotten the electronics down fairly well and I rarely have anything I can add. I am here for when I am needed, but you all have largely learned what I have to offer even if you do not have the technical aspects down, you do have the practical nailed.

I forgot to address the capacitor on the shared lug, just having one side of the caps on the shared lug will not alter the values of either, the other side of one is always out of circuit and therefore does not exist as far as the other is concerned.

I was referring more to just having you pop in and say hey, but the technical help is always appreciated ;D

Hey there -- after a LOT of searching, I found this very useful thread. I have a question/request: I am trying to add one sound to my JM (series+out-of-phase). Can this be achieved with ONE switch (e.g., the upper rhythm/lead switch)? Thanks for any help!

You wouldn't be able to do it with one switch, at least not a 4PDT switch. I would suggest either using push-pull pots to the lead circuit to add each sound separately, or use a rotary switch instead of the main 3-way toggle in the lower bout. That would work.

Hey, thanks for the reply. Okay, I've ordered to push-pull pot switches to get this done. Cheers.

Hello! First time poster here. Please forgive my probable ignorance as I am just learning about guitar wiring! I have a Jazzmaster question. I have an American Professional Jazzmaster that doesn’t have the rhythm circuit, it just has the tone and volume knobs and a 3-way selector. Would it be at all possible to achieve a sound that is the same as or similar to the rhythm circuit using a push pull pot/some modification of the existing wiring? I hope this question makes sense, thanks again in advance for your help and patience!

I've heard of some guys who have tried, or at least theorized, using fixed resistors on a switch to simulate the rhythm circuit. I've never done it though. Could be fun if you like that sound though!!

Hi Everyone,

I'm putting a coil tap in a Fender powercaster, and I've been struggling to find a proper schematic for it. I've gotten a 4 coil Fender humbucker, and I intend to use a push pull pot on the volume for the tap.

I've read that it would be a similar schematic to the HS Duo-Sonic, but that has also been impossible to find.

Coukd anyone please help me?

Volume and tone with 3 way switch

Thank you

The middle wires between the coils on the powercaster (white and black) are tied together in the stock wiring to give the stock series HB function, as shown on the wiring diagram ....
https://www.fmicassets.com/Damroot/Orig ... caster.pdf

To do a coil split, you simply switch those two wires to ground, eg as shown here in a SD diagram (where the middle coil wires on a SD HB are red and white instead) ... so you just need to add the wiring on the switch on the back of the volume pot ...

Since the powercaster cavity opens to the back, it should be deep enough for a push-pull pot (500k audio taper, solid shaft), but always best to measure first. The CTS style push-pulls are a PITA to solder, but a fraction less deep than others. Since they're mounted in the wood, you'd want the same shaft diameter as the 1/4" diameter on the stock powercaster pots ...

I've experimented with this some. See below for a schematic that uses a push/pull on the tone. This will basically sound just like the tone knob turned down to 1-2. I'd suggest just playing around on that area of the tone knob to decide if it's something you'll actually use, before doing any mods.

HH Strat. 5 way switch, vol, tone 1, tone 2 but the blade is wired like this:
1: bridge HB (normal bridge position)
2: bridge split coil + neck HB
3: normal bridge HB + neck HB
4: neck split coil + bridge HB
5: neck HB (normal neck position)

!! Solderers assemble!! :D :D

Nick asked me about this one, and my first instinct is that for it to be a blade switch, it would have to be a super switch. If it's possible, it would be really cool, but this kind of things is a little beyond me. If not, I'm sure it could probably be done with a rotary, but I've never been good with complicated blade switching...

Well actually it's going into an American elite strat, so the guts are like this:

If that help anyone. The wiring and what it does is found in this document, pages 4-6 (couldn't figure out how to share single pages without having to upload screenshots):
https://www.fmicassets.com/Damroot/Orig ... -24-17.pdf

The idea came from when the S1 is engaged and position one becomes bridge in parellel with neck and middle in series, and position two becomes neck in parellel with bridge and middle in series. Maybe it's best that i just use a 3 way and a push pulls for each pickup.

If it doesn't work i won't be heart broken. It's a cool idea none the less.

You could do that with a super strat switch, it would only need 2 of the 4 'poles'.

How's this:

Both hot wires would go to volume, both ground wires would go to ground.
The switch's two 'common' connections would be one of the two centre wires from the neck humbucker, and one of the centre wires from the bridge humbucker. You could use either, but maybe you want a particular coil.

(eg Seymour Duncan colours)
Volume: BBlack & NBlack
Ground: BGreen & NGreen

Bridge Red
1: BWhite
2: BBlack
3: BWhite
4: BWhite
5: empty

Neck White
1: empty
2: NRed
3: NRed
4: NGreen
5: NRed
