Jem 7WVH 05

Sorry if this has previously been covered, but my jem seems to have wiring arse over tit. It looks nothing like any of the diagrams on this website. In addition, I rarely use my tone pot, but when I do it reduces the volume. This jem has the overly complicated 5 way switch, anybody know a quick link to the right diagram?

Overly complicated to work with, or to use? I'm praying to God that you're not replacing it with a 3-way switch.

Re: Jem 7WVH 05

Right, now I am stuck and confused as the wiring looks to be factory finished.

firstly, just to make sure no stupid mistakes, on a jem volume is volume for all three pickups, and tone is tone for all three pickups? and am i right in thinking that the four wires are just one end of each of the two coils?

The configuration on the wiring diagram for an 05 Jem 7VWH is that both black and white are combined and sent to the 5 way switch, my pickups seem to be in reverse, with red and green combined and wired to the switch. Will this make a difference?

I want to achieve the same wiring as the new SV5470, with a push pull vol pot, changing between standard jem 5 way wiring and all single coils. I think I have attached correct diagrams but if not..

any help greatly appreciated.
