Post Trying to wire a guitar ?

Trying to wire my LTD Hybrid II with 2 push/push pots and not finding exactly what I want in a diagram? 1 volume , 1 tone, 2 Seymour Duncan STK-P1 pickups (P 90 sized humbuckers ) I want to wire both pickups just series/parallel. Not seeing the exact wiring diagram on the SD site either. Could someone draw it out or point me to a clear easy to read one online please? I know you know how to wire push/pulls Joe ?

Sorry between sick sister and ailing feriatric dachshund I have been busy.nthe answer to your question is yes. The difference Ive seen is just the mechanics of the switch wiring should be the same.

Thank you very much ! Sorry for the life issues. Gave me time to do my first copper tape shielding job.

Just using the pots for all switching, or is there a blade or toggle switch, too?

Copper tape is the way to go it works much better than shielding paint. I like to solder connections between pieces of tape and solder seams, it helps lower the impedance of the ground circuit. I was amazed when I did my Strat it lowered the background hum even tho' it had shielding paint. You can also shield pickups with it, I put copper shielding tape on the three lipstick pickups on my autoharp covering the area away from the strings it not only got quieter it also cancelled hum made by putting you hands on or near the lipsticks (they are wired with one out of three hum bucking). Copper tape also looks very cool!!!

The linked diagram is overkill, but should be adaptable to your use, I think. Ignore the coil splitting stuff, omit the separate volumes for a post-switch master volume. Spare push-push could do the phase switching.
