Prestige SV5470a PU change for SD’s

Hi, finally I recieved the Seymour Duncan JB(bridge), Custom Stack Plus(middle) and Jazz(neck) to put in my Prestige SV5470a. But I need some help/advice:

the SD PU’s are a lot thinner than the stock (True Duo) PU’s. The SD’s have small mounting legs so they Will be lower than the stock PU’s. How do I raise them? Using foam? Springs? The stocks are mounted direct to the body...

Than the volume pot, push pull, nr. 3VR00A0001 has the usual 3 big lugs and 12(!) small lugs for wiring. Is there any diagram/schedule available? Can’t find anything about this pot.

And last: can anyone provide me a wiring diagram for this configuration? Want to be able to split all 3 of ‘m using the volume push pull pot. Standaard 5 way switch. Since the middle PU now has 4 wires instead of 2 I’ll need a new diagram.

Lot’s of questions but eager to get started!
Thanks in advance for your help and support.

as far as thickness, i'd just use some foam to help get the right height. You can also use springs on the underside of the mounting tabs between the tabs and the body.

I am not sure I have ever seen a 12 pin push/pull but chances are that means it is a 4 pole double throw on/on switch. The trick is finding which poles are active in which position. They can vary but this one may be right




i'll see what i can do about making you a diagram too if i get a chance, but if you could send me a picture of the control cavity, switch and push/pull pot.

Thank you Sir! This surely helps! I’ll try using foam, that will do! I can’t really figure out how to connect the 3 PU’s to the 12 pin 4 layer pot. A diagram is more than I have hoped for so a big thanks from The Netherlands for you!
