    Default Nedd some help with wiring my guitar

    I've been doing plenty of reading. I know how to solder, but I can quite wrap my brain around what I'm trying to accomplish. Maybe someone here can help out.

    I'm wiring my Frankenstrat that I've been working on. I have a Seymour Duncan TB-11 for the humbucker and some cheap single-coil that came with my guitar. I'd like to hook up the single coil as well even though Eddie's wasn't hooked up, but still have only one knob to maintain the Frankenstrat look. My solution: a 500k push/pull pot.

    Now I'm stuck. I'd like one of the knob positions to just be the humbucker and the other position utilizing the single coil in some form whether it be in conjunction with the humbucker or just on its own. Could anyone help me out? Feel free to MSPaint or Photoshop wires on this diagram to make any explanations easier.

    What do you mean by pot input? You mean to the jack?

    A wire goes from the #5 lug of the push/pull to the input lug (the one furthest to the left) of the pot.

    Ok one other question. How do you solder the far right contact to the body of the pot as shown in the diagram.



    It won't reach.

    You can just bend it back, it will bend pretty easily

    Bending it back won't ground it. Doesn't it need to be soldered to the casing?

    I meant bend it back so you can solder it right on, but it looks like you've gotten everything taken care of already!
