How To Install 57 Classic Pickup In SG?
I have a Epiphone SG and want to put it in my SG all the wiring is, is one silver strand wire with a braided shield. What goes where? Which is the lead and which is ground? Where do they go? The wiring diagram didnt help much from Gibson. The pickup is 57 Classic Humbucker (not the 57 classic plus)
Crap I meant to say I have a 57 classic humbucker pickup sorry.
DPDT switch installation on guitars? (Push/Pull)?
I have an epiphone sg, I’m replacing the stock pickups with a seymour duncan sh2 (neck) and sh4 (bridge). I know how to solder and everything, changed pickups before, BUT never installed a push/pull switch. I understand that it’s actuall called a DPDT switch, but I don’t understand everything exactly. I have all the wiring diagrams for seymour duncans website. I would like to have the option of series, parallel, and coil split for each pickup but I don’t know how you would get all three with a two-position switch. Do you NEED an on/on/on switch to accomplish this? Whether you do or don’t, would somebody please clarify this for me? This is actually my trial run to determine if I want to do this to my Les Paul or not.
You can’t do it with one PP switch and I don’t believe you can do it easily with something other than a rotary switch to get all three off of one knob. Simple circuit/electronic/math logic requires that you have to have 2 switches to get 3 choices, but series/parallel/coil split adds complications of reusing the ends of wires in various ways. You didn’t show the link to the diagrams which would be helpful.
DPDT (double pole double throw) allows you to connect two wires to either of two pairs of wires. Series requires connecting a pair together and two more separately to out lying wires. Parallel would require making a connection to those two connected plus bringing the separately together and connecting them I just tried sketching it and I can’t make it work with one DPDT switch because of the tied together parts being different in each one.
Epiphone SG special edition help??
I bought this guitar, its fairly new, but it dont make noise. i took the back off, and the selector wire is hanging off. (1 of the 2) and it looks like they wired i themselves. where can i find a diagram or help to rewire the pickup selector?
also, when i found where the detached wire went, it only worked on the middle pickup selection. and it wouldn’t work with my pedal. just the amp.
If you can’t download a diagram from Gibson – http://www.stewmac.com has a small book on wiring Gibson guitars – if has options and hot-rodding options in it – I have the Fender version and it’s excellent. It sounds like the selector itself might be bad.
