    Default Looking for a wiring diagram

    Hey guys,

    I am an amateur luthier, and am currently working on a project for a customer. He wants a humbucker, without volume or tone but he does want a killswitch. I am having trouble finding a diagram matching these specs. Can anyone help me out?!

    Thanks in advance.

    Even that diagram makes it more complicated than need be. It's a simple SPST switch wired across the output jack, independent of any other wiring.

    Yes, of course that's another way of doing it. You could also use a SPST switch in line with the hot wire to disconnect it. More than one way to skin a cat. (OMG, where did that saying come from?)
