Hum single hum with a 6 position 2 pole rotary switch
Hi everyone, I recently under took a guitar project to make s team punk themed Jem. I've painted it and hand crafted a copper pick guard for that steam punk look. Now I'm up to wiring the pickups and I'm stumped as this is my first project.
I've opted for a matched pair of bareknuckle Cold sweat humbuckers with with 4 connectivity for split coil action and a EMG SC1-M for the single coil in the middle. all passive. the tone and volume are same as your standard Jem but I opted for a rotary switch for the pickup selector, with 6 positions and 2 poles.(see mspaint image attached).
I've connected the two poles in the middle together as they are the output and i thought that was what I should do and now after reading around a bit i find myself very confused. The selections I am aiming for are:
1. Neck Hum and Bridge Hum
2. Neck Hum
3. Neck slug and Middle
5. Bridge Slug and Middle
6. Bridge Humbucker
If anyone can help me out it would be much appreciated otherwise i'll have to resort to trial and error, which could get messy.
