Anyone see any issues with this wiring arrangement?
The 3 volumes and switch are overcomplicated for no apparent reason. What are you trying to achieve with this ?
Otherwise it's ok. Don't forget to ground the bridge.
I want to be able to use either pickup individually, as well as in parallel.
I want to be able to use all three configurations of the humbucker.
... and I want a master volume/tone because I hate trying to achieve a volume/tone using multiple interacting controls.
A balance pot would do the same job as 2 volumes+switch.
That would make MM switch, balance pot, master volume tone.
Much simpler no?
Not quite exactly the same, but honestly close enough for my me.
So rev. 2 looks like this:
It looks good to me.
You could even have the MM switch as a push-pull to save space.
Make sure you get an audio blend pot with 100/100 at the central detent. Some of them are 50/50.
Once again remember to ground the bridge and do star grounding to prevent hum.
I've never seen a three position push-pull.
Absolutely. Blend pot, not balance/pan pot.
Oh yeah, you want split too. No push-pull then.
