    I hope this has not been asked too frequently nor lately.

    I would like to experiment a bit a following wiring, but I don't have an idea how to. I have three (3) jazz (single coil) pups. I would like to have one on neck position and two on bridge. The bridge pups should be possible to be switched as singles - series - parallel. All of the pups should have their own pots at least when in singles mode. Just one tone pot is needed.

    Does anyone have a circuit to share.

    Many thanks, JerryH
  2. I think some warwicks have than setup, maybe check out the site or somthing?

    Thanks Tom

    I could not find any passive circuit from Warwicks. Also to me the Warwick circuits are quite special.

    I just want to use pots, caps and switches as simple as possible.

    One master vol pot and a master tone is all you need (in terms of pots) unless you want to throw in a balance pot [neck / bridge pickup(s)]

    3pos switch for the coil selection of the two bridge pickups, then combine the output with the neck pickup, either in a 3pos switch again, or with a balance pot

    Unfortunately, while I own such pickup configurations, I don't have the drawings to help you. Sorry :(

    Might see if Lakland or Music Man have diagrams available on their web sites. Seems to me the newly popular J+MM configuration is similar to 3 Js, except in that case the 2 bridge coils are in the same housing.
