Question about RG570 wiring.
Well, first off let me say that this is my first post, so if there's anything I should know, feel free to tell me.
Now here's what I'd like to know. I've got what I believe to be an RG570, circa 1992, with the V7 and V8 humbuckers and an S1 single coil in the middle. I like the way the pickups sound, but there are a couple of modifications I'd like to do. And, I'm not sure how exactlly the wiring works, so that's why I came here. Sorry if this topic has already been covered, I tried searching but a lot of stuff came through, and it would have been a lot of trouble to weed through all of the topics.
First off: I want to install push-pull pots for coil taps. Which wire is used for the tap, and how would I configure that into the existing wiring? Also, why exactly is a logarithmic pot used for the tone (shouldn't they both be audio?), and where can I find a push-pull replacement? I already have some 500k audio push-pulls from stew-mac but no logarithmic ones.
Second: As I said before, I love the overall tone of the pickups, but I think the humbuckers sound way to dark. There are hardly any highs/trebles, especially when played through my Hot Rod Deluxe. Is this because of the caps used? If so, what value should I change them to? If not, what else can I do to liven up the signal a bit?
I've done wiring for strats and humbuckers before, so I've got a pretty good knowledge of soldering and interpreting diagrams. I've just never worked with a humbucker and single coil in tandem, using a 5-way switch. Any help you guys can give regarding the two subjects mentioned above would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
