Kent Armstrong Motherbucker help? simple setup?
ok, so i´ve got a p90 for the neck position, and a motherbucker for the bridge position of a les paul guitar with a 3-way selector switch...
my idea is to have the two separate humbuckers on the motherbucker go to separate volume knobs, but having both of them connect to the "bridge" position on the 3-way switch...
both of the humbuckers are 4-conductor, and i´ve so far wired them like the manual says about 4-conductor humbuckers in full-humbucker mode:
white and bare to ground
red and green soldered together and taped off
black to volume pot
then i´ve soldered a wire from the "output" of one volume knob over to the "output" of the other volume knob, and then from that one to the 3-way.
it´s not exactly working out very well, so i´m asking you guru-fellas:
how do i get two 4-conductor humbuckers (both in full humbucker mode, now switches or coil taps or whatever) into two separate volume knobs, and then into the same positon on the 3-way?
right now it sounds like a goopy mess, with next to no output, and it only makes any sound if both volume knobs are set to full. i also think the p90 is suffering because of this. i emailed kent armstrong, and this is what he said:
"Make sure the PU lives go to the middle contact on the volumes then you can connect each volumes outs to the 3 way.
Personally I would put in a 5 way or even a super 5 way for max effect.
problem is, i have no idea what he means by that! :P
