EGEN Wiring - Anybody Figure It Out?

I saw the wiring selection for the EGEN and I wondered if anyone knows how to wire an HSH for the same options. (I'm hoping you've already figured it out Vim)

Seems to be similar (emphasis here) to what Vim suggested to me in my Wiring Help HHH thread.

I haven't tried it out yet.

Re: EGEN Wiring - Anybody Figure It Out?

Actually I hadn't reallised the egen had a unique wiring scheme, Actually looking at it it's almost the same as a couple of designs I had for my jem...

this had a mode push pull to select either the single coil or both humbuckers in position 3 and a coil tap push pull to tap the humbuckers in different positions.
I'll draw up a schematic for the egen over lunch (uk time) and post it after.

Whoa, even if it's useful how would you remember all those choices?

I've been working on it too. It looked tough.

Re: EGEN Wiring - Anybody Figure It Out?

Ok this is the best so far.....

Using 2 push pull pots, one for neck + bridge OR middle in position 3, and the other for the coil taps!!
Still not exactly as Ibanez state for the Egen.
