Post Guitar wiring Q... Again.
I've had a novel idea for my Ibanez but I just need someone to give me a hand one the wiring schematic side of things.

I have a Ibanez RG with the H-S-H config and I'd like to use the 5 way switch like this:

Position 1: Single coil of neck humbucker
Position 2: Neck Humbucker
Position 3: Middle Single Coil
Position 4: Bridge Humbucker
Position 5: Single coil of Bridge humbucker

I should clarify that what I want in positions 1 and 5 is the single coil split as you would find as stock in positions 2 and 4 on an Ibanez but without the middle single coil on at the same time so I can get that lovely Jeff Beck thing going on.

Maybe the best way to explain it is that 1,3 and 5 should be set-up like a Stratocaster and the 2 and 4 should be set up like a Les Paul.

I hope the makes sense.

Ta very muchly. :mrgreen:

It would be pretty easy to do with a 3-way switch and a push/pull pot. I'll do some investigating and see if I can come up with something to get the selections you want with a 5-way. --Jason

Oohhh thanks, I'm looking forward to it! I'd prefer to keep the 5 way but either diagram would be great. :mrgreen:
