Another schematic request: VT with 3-way pickup selector and series/parallel switches

    I'm mostly a Precision guy, but sometimes you still gotta have the Jazz sound. To simplify schlepping for gigs, I'd like to make my J capable of being as P-like as possible----meaning simplifying the controls to just two knobs, and adding a three-way pickup selector, as well as a series/parallel switch.

    I'm looking for help with the schematic for this: Jazz pickups, VT with three way pickup selector and S1. Any takers?

    Thanks in advance.

    This wiring can also be found with a Mini-Switch and a Push/Pull in my collection: http://161589.homepagemodules.de/t2...chaltplan-Sammlung-fuer-passive-E-Baesse.html (2.2.02 - page 232 at the moment)

    Line6man shows it with different switches.

    Why I write / add someting ...
    The wiring won't work in one position of the 3-way switch!
    You can see it in the schematics and the table.

    Hals means neck, Steg means bridge, "kein Signal" means "no signal" ...
     
  5. The diagram I posted bypasses the pickup selector switch in series mode, so that all positions are the same.

    Great!
    Didn't know this way of wiring.
    This is going to be "2.2.03" (with a hint in 2.2.02 that 03 is the better solution!).

    EDIT: Version 3.80 is online now with line6man's solution (2.2.03 - page 236 at the moment)!

    Thank you very much to line6man!
