    Default SD schematics, What view are they in?

    when you look at a sd schemcatic from the sd site, which way is it being looked at? (like when it shows a dpdt switch, lets say its a push/pull, which side is closest to the face of the guitar and which side is closest to the rear of the guitar?)

    The pots and dpdt terminals are all stem up oriented. The direction that the pots face inside the guitar is not represented. Most guitars have the terminals of the pots (volume and tone groups) facing each other for ease of wiring, but it really doesn't matter electrically as long as you have the terminals correct.

    thanks, i wasnt reffering to which way the terminals go, i know how to wire generally, but schematics can be problematic, but you still answered my question thanks robert
