Stew-Mac Superswitch Wiring

Hey, I just bought a stew.mac 5 way superswitch
http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Electron...b=Instructions
Sadly they don't give any wiring diagrams, and I cant figure it out...

I want to do this:
bridge series
bridge parallel
inner coils
neck parallel
neck series

How can I do this? Someone please help me

Re: Stew-Mac Superswitch Wiring

Thanks,
but this one is closer to what I need
http://www.guitarelectronics.com/pro...1-Tone-04.html

I only have 1 vol and 1 tone. This is almost is, but how do I change this so in the middle position I would have inner coils working?

Re: Stew-Mac Superswitch Wiring

You could potentially change one of the pots to a push-pull that will tap the pups, or add a toggle to the body to accomplish the same.

Potentially could give you single-coil tones

Re: Stew-Mac Superswitch Wiring

Check the HSH with coil-tap option on the same site. Ignore the middle pickup connections. Where you have the wires hit 1, 1-2, 4, 4-5 on your diagram, you'll have to see what happens if you then splice into 3. Trace the signal.

Someone with more knowledge can probably chime in.

Re: Stew-Mac Superswitch Wiring

Does the Stew-Mac switch work the same as the Dimarzio EP 1112?

Would this work?

Re: Stew-Mac Superswitch Wiring

I believe they are identical.
