Hi there, I'm new here. I stumbled upon this forum in my quest for pretty unusual wiring schematics for Strat. Here's the story:
I recently got my hands on the new Yamaha-catalog, and noticed the SA503TVL Troy van Leeuwen signature model. This is an ES335-style semi-hollow, but with three soapbar pickups. It was the switching that caught my eye most, though. They use two three position toggle switches for them. This opens lots of possibilities, but I can't find how they wire them. There's one wiring scheme that came to my mind, and has been haunting my mind eversince, as it would make a great wiring scheme for my Strat. Here it is:
I would fit a three position Strat-switch on my Strat that switches between the neck pickup, bridge pickup and both pickups in parallel mode for Tele-switching. A three way toggle switch adds the middle pickup (RW/RP), with the settings OFF, ON (parallel) and ON (series).
I know it can be done (with little modification of the guitar, I'd only need to drill a new hole in my pickguard for the switch - OR make one tonepot a master tonepot and stick the switch in the hole of the other tonepot) but I don't know [CENSORED] about wiring pickups. I've been searching the internet like crazy but this switching scheme is nowhere to be found. Or maybe it is, but I missed it.
Who can supply me with the correct schematics? It would make me very happy!
