I need a wiring diagram, ASAP!!!

I am wiring up a H-S-H configuartion and I am using 2 volumes, no tone and a 3 way blade switch. I am wanting to run the bridge hum on a volume by itself and the middle(single) and neck hum on the other volume. Switch position would be: down=bridge humbucker, middle= middle single coil, and up=neck humbucker

someone please explain the best way for me to do this

I would just use one volume as a master volume for all 3, after the switch

and the other volume on just the bridge humbucker, between the pickup and the switch.

but I dont get why you need two volumes if you are always running each pickup on its own ?

yeah im lost as to why the need for 2 volumes.

the switch part is easy its just exactly as you describe on the switch lugs.

Re: I need a wiring diagram, ASAP!!!

Got it!!!! Finally figured out the perfect way and got it finished. Works wonderfully. One cool feature is if on the bridge pup and the volume for the M/N is off you can do some neat "stutter" effects, ala Ace Frehley. Not sure if I would do it on a every night, every other song basis as I am not sure if blade type switches are as durable as standard 3 ways.

Anyways, I am stoked that I finally got my wiring finished.

pups being used for this install were: Seymour Duncan TB-4 reverse(JB) bridge, S1 middle and Seymour Duncan '59 neck
