    I've got an L2500 Tribute with an Audere 3ZB preamp and individual series/single coil/parallel switches.

    I'd like to do a complete copper foil shielding job, and while I'm in there I want to replace the Audere 3ZB with an Audere Classic Four Band pre, and replace the individual series/single coil/parallel switches with individual outer single coil/parallel/inner single coil switches.

    Below is a wiring diagram for a unified outer single coil/parallel/inner single coil using a 4PDT switch.

    Wiring.

    I've got a bunch of on-on-on DPDT switches - could I split this unified switch in half on two of these?

    Yes- a 4pdt switch is identical to 2 dpdt switches being flipped at the same time.

    Thanks!

    So the yellow and white wires from each pup go to the switches - do the green and black wires go to ground?

    Yep- since you aren't wiring for "series" mode, you can just view each pickup as 2 seperate coils. Each coil has a "start" (ground) and a "finish"(hot). The Green and Black wires are both "start", and the Yellow and White are both "finish".

    So, you wire the "start" wire to ground?
