Okay, so first off, hi, and thanks. First post here, but I've been reading over threads I've stumbled on here for a while which have helped me forward in my latest project and gotten me to the phase where I'm ready to plan the wiring.
I'm not very experienced, having only wired up a guitar once- and not a very complicated one at that. So I was hoping I can get a little guidance from someone who's done this or direction to a diagram if possible. I'm sure others have done what I'm looking to, I just haven't yet been able to find it.
Okay, so what is it? Well, I placed an order for the JB 'bucker, the duckbucker and the little 59 (it's an HSS guitar, so I needed the full size JB).
I have a 5-way switch and two pots, a master volume and master tone, to work with. What I want to achieve, with both of them being push/pull, is this:
Volume up: Neck or Bridge pickup on, thus allowing the N+B/all 3 pup combos.
Tone up: Neck and Bridge split to single coil mode.
With both knobs down, it would operate exactly as the EA set is designed to.
That's it! No other out-of-phase or serial/parallel split craziness (at least not yet). I just want to be able to split the two full humbuckers, and combine the neck and bridge to get those nice, LP-ish double 'bucker tones. I guess I'm curious what the 59 and JB are like together when they're both split, too, but I'm not too concerned about it. Obviously, I'd like to avoid hum as much as possible.
From what I've seen, you're a very knowledgeable and helpful bunch so hopefully somebody can point me in the right direction. Standard noob disclaimer* applies! Thanks for your time!
*- ie, Sorry if I suck at searching and am requesting something that's been done to death. I'm going to talk to a tech I know and hopefully have some hands-on supervision and help with it, but I'd like to learn what I can beforehand and, if possible, go in (somewhat) prepared.
