Humbucker switch wiring: SC/Series/Parallel/SC

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by thumbs3000, Oct 30, 2013.


  1. Hi,
    Any idea if it is possible to wire a humbucker to a 4 way switch so you can access:
    1. North Coil
    2. Humbucker Series
    3. Humbucker Parallel
    4. South Coil

    Also, where would one find a 4 way switch? I tend to only see 3 way switches or the bigger blade switches and super switches.

    The pickups I am looking at using is a dual MM (doublebuck) config, using either Basslines SMB5A or Nordstrand MM5.4
    I'd prefer to use mini toggle switches if possible.
     
  2. There are no four-position mini toggles. You will need a rotary toggle switch.
