    Question HSS wiring diagram needed

    I need help with a wiring diagram for my HSS Strat -- I've searched through all the diagrams on multiple sites but none of them fit my needs/goal.

    I have a SD Distortion/Custom hybrid (4 conductor) in the bridge and DMZ SDS-1s in the middle and neck.

    The strat has 2 volumes, no tone and a 5 way switch.

    What I'm looking for is 2 volume controls:

    -Volume 1 (closest to bridge): bridge humbucker only
    -Volume 2 (furthest from bridge): middle & neck


    Switching: Neck / Neck & Middle / Middle / Middle & Bridge (SPLIT -- screw coil on) / Bridge

    Thanks in advance!

    Have a look at this, just ignore the tone control. For the splits, there are plenty of diagrams that show how to do that. You won't get the split on the switch because you need one side of the switch to send the neck/middle to the volume control.

    Would one of these work?

    So I guess I'd need a push/pull pot then?

    The one on the left should work. The one on the right will not because the second volume ground is not connected in a way that ever reaches the ground on the output jack. If you want to use the one on the right, you need to keep that jumper connecting the back of the two volumes that also hooks to the output jack.

    Yeah, you'll need a push/pull to get the split going.
