EMG wiring problem


I have 2 EMG 89 pickups and an SLV pickup, one volume and one tone.

I'm having trouble working out how to connect then together with just one volume control (push/pull) to control all three pickup volumes.

I cant seem to find a diagram that can help.

Any suggestions anyone?

Re: EMG wiring problem


Hey Marcoma, welcome to Jemsite!!!

What kind/year of guitar is this in? and what type/brand of switch are you using??

Have a read through AlaskaBat's thread....... pretty much every resource for wiring and schematics is in here:

Re: EMG wiring problem


Follow the instructions that show a volume and tone, just omit the tone control part when you wire yours.

Yes--it's that simple.
Just omit any components you are not using.

Re: EMG wiring problem


I still cant get this right, here's my setup:

Neck: EMG 89
Middle: EMG SLV
Bridge: EMG 89

There is space for one master volume and one master tone. I cant fit the EMG 5 way switch in the cavity so I have to use a non EMG switch which leaves just enough space. This means I have to do a bit of soldering on the switch but that is not a problem.

As the 2 EMG 89 pickups have pots to switch from single coil to humbucker I am lost as which of the connectors to use, I cant seem to find what the connections H1 to H5 do to be able to make sense of it.

Can anyone advise on how I should connect things?

Re: EMG wiring problem


The easiest way to figure out what you want is to email emg support. Rick will usually get back to you the same day. Your post here is a little confusing on what your are trying to accomplish. I would list all the parts you are using with pics and how you want the set up to be. From what Ive pieced together you want

bridge 89 to be coil split with a push pull tone pot
single in the middle
neck 89 to be coil split with a push pull volume pot
with pickup selection using a standard 5 way switch?

I am also assuming you are talking about the newer quick connect systems?

I haven't received a response from them yet, do you know of a direct email I can send the question to?

Thanks
