Re: A wiring diagram needed

i have SDuncan pups, they both have 4 cables, since the black is the hot output and the green is ground, i`ve solder the red and white cables from both pups to the middle of the pup selector or switch and the bridge pup looses signal, now i remove the red and white from the switch and taped them together, separated i mean. the red and white from the bridge and the red and white from the neck pup... and now the middle position is useless but i get the full signal from the pups

Re: A wiring diagram needed

What combinations are you trying to get?

If you were losing signal with the 3 way you most likely wired the pup incorrectly.

Re: A wiring diagram needed

Sorry, right now no. But if you tell me what you're trying to do with it (what combinations of coils, and if you want series or par) I'll let you know if it's possible, and if I have the time I'll figure out how to wire it, if I don't already know how to do what you're trying.

You could try a Google search, just now I tried "guitar pickup wiring" and came up with lots of pages.

Re: A wiring diagram needed

Here's a diagram based on the SM Super Switch.

http://home.earthlink.net/~micjustmic/Wiring.jpg

This is what I used in my 520 and I'm very happy with the results.

It's a little blurry, so if you have any questions I can re-scan it and email a larger version if you need one. Just PM me with your email address.

Re: A wiring diagram needed

You really can't do much fancy wiring with a standard 5 way and 2 humbuckers.

You would really need a 4 pole switch for that, but in your position, just to get it working for now, I would simply go with a three position type wiring (with no splitting), leaving 2 of the position dead (or wire it so they match the position closest to it) and then order a Super Switch from Stewmac.

I have one in my 520 and the way I have it wired I have;

Position 1: Full bridge humbucker
Position 2: Bridge side single on the bridge, and neck side single on the neck.
Position 3: neck side single on neck
Position 4: Both inside single coils
Position 5: Full neck humbucker

I don't remember how I wired it, but it wouldn't be difficult to find something similar.

Re: A wiring diagram needed

Its wired up right now and Im getting an output from every position, but the guitar isnt strung so I cant really check exactly what is going on.
If this diagram isnt right, what can you reccomend?
Thanks

Re: A wiring diagram needed

I know I'm late to this thread, but the switch in the 520 is NOT a standard 5 way switch. (Just to clarify, it is NOT an YM-50)

It's internally "wired" for "special" 2 humbucker/5 way wiring. It says right on the diagram "SC-SWITCH - 5WAY SWITCH FOR 2HUM.

This diagram will simply give you a head-ache if you try to use it with a standard 5 way switch.

To answer your last question, yes, red is hot and white is the coil-split.

Re: A wiring diagram needed

On the 520 diagram,

is the red wire hot, and the white wire the "join" between the 2 coils (what would be black and white on a standard dimarzio pup?

Re: A wiring diagram needed

The YM-50 is a standard 5-way switch, you should be able to use the RG520 diagram I posted a link to.
