Has anyone ever wired a H-S-H guitar, specifically the RG1570 so that with the 5-way switch or by a push/pull pot that both the bridge and neck pups are both activated at the same time? Just wonder how that would sound, if it's worth the effort. Thanks.

There are several ways to go about this. One idea would be to install a 3-way switch and wire the humbuckers to it and then use a push-pull to add the single to any combination(which would also get you all 3 pickups). The H-H selection has worked for tons of Les Paul and SG players for decades.

Thank you. I've had many H-H, S-S-H and S-S-S guitars over the last 20 years but this is my first H-S-H. I've found this and it is fairly close to what I am looking for: http://static.zoovy.com/img/guitarelectronics/-/wdu_hsh5l11_02 I feel this way, I could have the best of both worlds.

My pickups are an Air Norton at the Neck, stock middle and a Tone Zone at the Bridge. Since I do not use the middle pup by itself I do not feel I would be missing anything and it would save me the trouble of having to install a push-pull pot.

Has anyone here tried this with their HSH setup and/or this pup config? If so, how did it sound? What were the pros & cons if any? Thanks a million.
