Re: Zakk Wylde set (81/85) with a 5 way
Something about that doesn't look right to me, but I guess it depends on the 5-way switch you have, some of them are wired differently than others. What I've done in the past is have the bridge pickup wired to the usual bridge lug, the neck on the middle lug and the neck lug open. This yielded
1 - Bridge
2 - Bridge + Neck
3 - Neck
4 - Neck
5 - Nothing (essentially a poor man's kill switch)
I don't see any reason why you couldn't wire the neck across both the middle and neck lugs and get Bridge, Both, Neck, Neck, Neck though if you wanted to avoid accidentally cutting out the sound entirely.
