Dimarzio Chopper (Neck), Dimarzio Fred (Bridge) 1 Vol (coil tap), No Tone, No Switch

Hi All,

My configuration is:

Neck: Dimarzio Chopper Stacked Pickup

Bridge: Dimarzio Fred

Both are 4 wire types.

I don't want a switch and no Tone Pot either.

I do have a Volume Pot that has a push-pull.

Now, what I'm looking to do:

Use the Push-Pull to switch on Neck and Bridge separately (effectively use a switch) so

Push = Neck Pickup
Pull = Bridge Pickup

Any wiring suggestions? I have looked at the George Lynch config over on SD but that uses a single coil instead of stacked - would it still work? Here's a link http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/showthread.php?t=358043

It should work as you will connect two wires and ground wire to switch. But there should be four wires and ground wire on pickup giving you choice of serial, parallel or true single coil connection.
