I have no idea about these pickups. Guy tried telling me they are Actives, but I see no battery pack?
Also if someone can find me a Wiring Diagram for a H-S with V-V-T-3WS and I believe a kill switch?
Here's a picture....
those aren't active. i'd replace those pots with some alphas and an orange drop pronto though. are you sure that's a kill switch? it looks like it's wired up as a coil split for the humbucker.
if i were you, i'd look into replacing all the electronics as it seems like a bunch of the stuff in there isn't really working right in the first place. check out http://store.guitarfetish.com/guelco.html for all your electronic needs, and http://store.guitarfetish.com/pickups.html for pickups. their stuff isn't exactly top dollar quality, but it'll get you were your goin'
http://shop.wymoreguitars.com. plus, with wymore if your order is more than $50, you get free shipping. even better, enter sdforum for the coupon code, and get an additional 7% off. there's definitely better stuff on this site than guitarfetish, but if you don't feel like drilling holes, i'd stick with guitarfetish stuff.
Can anyone find that Wiring Diagram? I looked everywhere and all I can find is 2 Singles and a Humbucker, I need 1 Single. Since I never messed with these pickups I don't want to do Trial and Error (obvious reasons) I'd rather just check the Diagram. Thanks everyone.
BTW the crackle paintjob on that guitar would have looked alright, shame some oaf ruined it!
What you gonnae do with it?
Paint it pink I say! Stick in an Invader and a Hot Rails or Little 59 neck = metal.
if you need a diagram, look around for hermetico, and shoot him a pm. he'd be able to cook up a diagram for you. make sure you explain exactly what you need with every part and which pickups you'd be using tho!
I've got a CTS250k pot to put in my Jackson KE3, so I'm really glad you posted this before I wire it all up only to find it doesn't fit the hole! Oo-er!
well if you don't mind tearing into your guitar... there's always the possibility of drilling new holes. personally all my guitars are routed(6 holes on my imports) for cts. it's not like i absolutely had to have cts in there or anything like that, it's just all i had to replace with. btw alpha is the only maker of push pulls right now anyways, so i've actually got about 1/4of my pots cts and the other 3/8U.S. sized alpha push pulls. stewmac sells metric push pulls to btw.
you'll need this part if your coil split isn't working, though i couldn't find it in black. bwt it's got 6 lugs as opposed to 3, but just use one side and you should be fine.
just wire it up the way it is in the diagram, but with the the colors the pickup was originally wired up as.
Yea I'm really not sure what that is, it looks like the Neck is Wired to the First Volume, the Bridge is on the second, with the Red/Black on The Bottom Selection of the Splitter? The Small Blue wire on the Top, and The Double lead Blue in the middle. The First Volume to the Top Position on the Toggle, Second to the Bottom, and Middle to Tone. I am so confused with this Splitter or Mini Toggle, whatever it is?
Will you ever use the humbucker split? If not I'd just bypass it.
If you do want to use it (might be nice to use with a neck single coil) I would just leave the switch that's already there instead of spending money changing it. Unless it's broke.
If it bothers you that the pots are wired the wrong way round, why not just move them?
If it's doing nothing other than humming, I'd look at the input jack maybe.
is it just me or are Alpha's smoother than CTS'?
