    Wiring help - Dimarzios & THIS switch



    It's a standard 3-position switch. I prefer this type of switch (rather than the closed "box"-type) because if something goes wrong in a live setting, usually a fix is only some needle-nose pliers away.

    If anyone is familiar with this switch, and how to properly wire it using 4-conductor Dimarzio pickups, and could send a wiring diagram, I would be grateful. I am tired of my "tech" throwing my switches away and installing whatever he has on the bench. Thanks!

    My guitar has two humbuckers, and it should be wired like the Axis/ Wolfgang is, from the factory. Thanks!

    Dont have wolf/axis but lug on left is ground.

    4 lugs on right(On a 2 pup-2 pot guitar), bend middle two lugs together and run wire to jack. Two outside lugs are for pot outs.

    On a 2 pup-1 pot guitar, bend middle two lugs together and run wire to pot input. Outside lugs are for pup hots.

    I'm not sure if you're using a tone control or not ...

    Thanks, Dino! Nope, I don't have a Tone pot. Would you have another diagram withOUT the Tone pot factored in? I want to make this as idiot-proof as I can when I take it into the shop this week.

    Simply ommit the tone control and the one wire going to the volume control.
