Re: JC RG8520 pickup wiring

the humbucker selector switch is a little different than standard, but I am not sure why they put in the extra switch when you could have done the same thing with a push/pull pot and split both pickups at one time.

either way it is good to know how they wired up the selector switch. Thank you for sharing.

Re: JC RG8520 pickup wiring

Cool, thanks. This would actually be really helpful with a 3-humbucker guitar, like an HSS using Cruisers in the middle and neck, which are actually humbuckers.
