I have a '96/97 Fender Strat and had installed an Invader pickup a few years back to use with the stock pickups in the middle and neck. I just purchased a Lil'59 and Duckbucker pickup to compliment the invader (Duckbucker for the center and Lil'59 for the neck). I installed everything tonight and it works, but I'm not completely convinced that I connected everything correctly.
1. Are the wires to be soldered to the volume pot supposed to be wired separately per pickup? In other words, I twisted the wires from all three pickups together that were supposed to connect to the volume pot together as one solder connection. Should I have made three different connections (one per pickup)?
2. After looking at the wiring diagram for the Invader, Duckbucker and Lil'59 I'm a little confused which diagram to follow since each of the diagrams seems to be specific to installing the same pickup in all positions (i.e. two Invaders, three Duckbuckers or three Lil'59's). I did find another diagram on the site for "1 humbucker, 1 single, 1 humbucker, 1 volume, 2 tone, 5-way switch". Is this the one to use?
I hope that makes sense. I tried to make the most sense I could of everything before asking.
