    Default Suhr HSS Wiring Diagram

    Anyone got a copy of this please? I understand that it is a very effective way of having Single Coil pickups 'see' 250k and Humbuckers 'see' 500k for HSS guitars. It requires a Super Switch.

    Anyone?

    Thanks

    No it doesn't reguire a super switch. It's actually possible to do with a standard 5-way switch. Well at least if you use two volume pots for it. If you need to use one pot for it then I can't help you.
    The two pot thing was done here a few of weeks ago:

    It's not exactly same what you seek but basically it's the same.

    The problem with this is that in the neck+mid position, there are two 470K resistors running in parallel with the volume control. This brings the load down to 160K, surely not what is desired.

    Yeah, that is odd. I'd eliminate R3.

    But then you've only got your 250K load on the neck-only position, and the others all go back to 500K.

    This problem is why I ended up needing an 8-pole (well, 5 used) switch for my superstrat. Just proper normal switching taken care of by four of the poles, and then one extra pole used to actually bring the resistor into the circuit when needed.

    So that Suhr HSS diagram is actually incorrect?

    If it says it gives an effective 250K load on all except the bridge position, then yes it is.
