    Ok. I got everything I need to do the series/parallel mod, but one thing. Instructions and a wiring diagram for an DPDT switch. After that no more questions from me tell the end of the month!!!!!
  2. DPDT terminals look like this (bottom view):

    (1) (2)
    (3) (4)
    (5) (6)

    and assuming that the wires from your pickups are coloured white and black with the black being the wire connected to ground now, and the white the wire connected to the pot now (hot)...

    connect (1) and (4)
    connect (5) to ground
    disconnect neck pickup black and connect to (3)
    disconnect bridge pickup white and connect to (4)
    connect (6) to where the bridge pickup white used to go (if your controls were V/V/T this would have been the centre of the bridge pickup volume pot)


    if you're confused, do a search for "series" in this forum...Lyle Caldwell has posted schematics.

    There's a ton of these floating around this forum. Some are stickied at the top.
