  1. What I mean is that you still have the 2 on/off/on switches meaning that you still have the in and out of phase options BUT you have 2 push pull pots to coil split both humbuckers. So what would the wiring for this look like?
  2. I am routing it to fit Humbuckers, (SH-4 JB Bridge Humbucker & SH-2 Jazz Model Neck Humbucker) changing the bridge to a Mustang one, or something better ( happy to hear any recommendations ) I’ll be using CTS 1 MEG pots for volume and tone, as well as the Orange Drop Capacitor .047uf ( hopefully this will give it a nice bright tone ? ) will try and make the top switch a Parallel & Series switch, as well as having the coil splits on the bottom switches.. I’d love to hear your opinions on the materials/parts i’m planing on using, and if you have any other suggestions please let me know!
  3. Hi. I am planning on modding my Surf Green Squire vintage modified jaguar to have 2 4 wire humbuckers, a three way toggle switch, and a coil tap on the neck pickup, however I want to keep the rhythm circuit and low cut switch. (basically similar to a Kurt Cobain jag except only master volume and master tone, neck coil tap, and keeping the low cut switch) I'm 17 and I'm not very good with wiring, also jag wiring is especially confusing. Would anyone be able to help me figure out a wiring diagram for this, or at least help explain it to me? Are there any other mods I should try for this guitar?
  4. Hi, so I’m a wiring noob and needing some help with the wiring I have in mind. I’m upgrading both pups in my JS. In the bridge I’m putting in a Seymour Duncan P-Rails, and in the neck a Lace Chrome Dome (or DiMarzio Area 67). (Two slide switches and Tone and Vol.) What I want to be able to do if possible is wire the neck switch to toggle between the neck/neck+bridge(parallel)/bridge. The bridge switch I want to wire to split the p-rails, rail/humbucker(series)/p-90. So, what I need is a diagram if possible and some advice about the switches. I assume i’ll need two 3-way on/on/on slide switches? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  5. Hey all, I've had my HH Special for a few years now, and I love everything about it, except for the lack of clarity in the pickups. So I've bought a set of Seymour Duncan 59/Custom Hybrid humbuckers. Only issue is, the Fender Dragster pickups that were in the guitar have a thick cable which terminates by splitting into a single output wire, and a bare ground wire. Whereas the 59s terminate by splitting into a red, white, green, black and bare wire. Do I need to just solder together and tape off some of them? Also, the Dragsters are soldered to their pickup covers, but the 59s don't have covers, does this mean I need to find another way to ground them? Thanks in advance
  6. Hi folks, it's about my beloved 1995 Jag-Stang... I managed to swap stock humbucker with DiMarzio DP100. As I hoped sounds are way better ! To solder my DP100, I used the attached wiring diagram. It's kind of good but not perfect. With this diagram, switches works almost as expected, except with switch 1 on bridge position + switch 2 on series position, which works as "off pickup position" (no sound). I want to use this "off position" to make "out of phase" sound (all other positions have to stay "in phase"), but I can't find anywhere how to do. Any help can bee provided will be greatly appreciated :))))))) Thanks for reading. Cheers.
  7. Hi everyone! Longtime viewer but a first time poster! My apologies as I’ve been using the wisdom you provide here for years without providing any of my own, so serves me right for my current conundrum! Here’s hoping you can help me, everyone! I bought a (presumably) 2012-14 C.I.I. (Crafted in Indonesia) Surf Green Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar and a Sonic Blue Jazzmaster. They are both SWEET guitars, set up great from the factory (albeit with rubber-band-like 9s or maybe even 8s I promptly removed. I play my MIJ Jagu w/12s, as a point of contrast…) and I swapped the “Duncan Designed” Jazzmaster pickups for American Vintage ones no problem…but… * I cannot for the life of me get my lead pickup to work in ANY capacity! I have NO idea what to do! * Okay, I’m pretty familiar with the Jaguar pickup selector system as I’ve been playing my 90s MIJ for years, and the logic I went through to rule things out is below… Where have I gone wrong? [Keep in mind, I’m an experienced player, but a COMPLETELY AMATEUR electrician and DIY-repairman, so I won’t take any “did you try….” remarks as condescension. I just want to learn!] 1. The rhythm pickup works just fine… Both using the dedicated rhythm circuit (at the “top” of the body when across my knee, playing) and the tone/volume wheels both work fine. 2. Using the lead selector switch at the “bottom,” it works just fine tone/volume knobs work just fine. 3. The bass cut switch also works just fine when using the rhythm pickup only with the “lead circuit.” 4. When I try to use both pickups, I get nothing… it sounds as though the pickups are indeed switched on, but only barely… 5. When I try to use the lead pickup alone, I get nothing. Dead. 6. I have concluded that it must be a bad switch, no? I am pretty awful at soldering for sure, but also: I can’t find a wiring diagram for the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar… it’s a bit different (or at least mine is?) from the wiring diagram included in the Fender Vintage 65 pickups package I got. In fact, it’s quite different. Could it be that I have installed the wrong pickups in the wrong places? For one, the colors of the wires are frustratingly backward in that the stock rhythm pickup (“Duncan-Designed”) I pulled from the guitar had a black and yellow wire attached and the lead pickup had a black and a white wire attached… If the wiring diagram included in the Fender American Vintage 65 package is to be believed, it’s the opposite: lead pickup has a yellow wire and rhythm has a white wire. Also, the black ground wire went someplace completely different than this diagram suggests? When I removed the stock pickups, I tried to reconnect everything to where it was, but now it’s a mess of solder and no signal… If you DO know how to help, what’s the best way to do it? Start from scratch and pick up [no pun intended ] some new switches? Is it a bad wire or bad new pickup from the box? Should I give this to a professional at this point? No clue, whatsoever… but mighty frustrating! ** Incidentally, because I’m a complete idiot, I don’t have a good picture of the “before” (of course…) for the lead circuit. I anticipated this rhythm one giving me more trouble, but lesson learned there… So if anyone has looked under the hood and snapped a photo of what the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguars are “supposed to look like” stock, please please please post a picture! That alone would help massively! I can post some pictures later in the day! Thanks in advance for any help!
  8. Hey, I'm new to modding guitars and I'm getting a squier jaguar soon that I want to change up. The most common comment I see about the jaguar is that its rhythm circuit is only useful for certain things like the woman tone. I feel like the rhythm circuit would be so much more useful and versatile if you could switch between pickups while it was activated. This could allow for an outrageous amount of tones from one guitar, and my idea is putting in a Gibson-style three way toggle as part of the rhythm circuit, and keeping the lead circuit wired-up with the three selector-switches and the hi-pass. If you're worried about signal/tone being lost due to more being put in the way of the original signal, I suppose you could wire up the lead circuit with a toggle switch instead of the selectors and keep the hi-pass switch. Due to not having done any of this stuff before, I'm here to see if this is actually possible; if there would be substantial signal/tone loss; and how one would go about wiring all of that up. Thanks!
  9. Dear all Please help me, ive exhausted the internet for an answer to this question but to no avail. I have a Fender Jagstang (obviously) and a Texas Special in the Neck and Seymour Duncan JB in Bridge but im getting TERRIBLE earthing sounds even when I touch the guitar or a metal part, so ive decided im going to re-wire her from scratch and get some decent guitar cable to do so. The Jagstang Schematic diagram on this site is as much use as a chocolate teapot, fancy doing the schematic upside down from the top up when everybody who does wiring would need it from the perspective of looking at it. Very backward...but cant fault the effort. Secondly I found another schematic on this site which shows how to wire the guitar where one switch does the pickups and another does other things (which I dont want it to do). ALL I WANT IS A NORMAL OPERATING GUITAR. 1 of the two switches ONLY to work (preferably the humbucker switch) 0-- = Neck only -0- = Both Pickups --0 = Bridge only -I dont want or need an on/off switch Now is this too much to ask? If somebody can advise me as to how I can achieve this ill be forever indebted to you. I need a clear concise diagram please, This includes the earthing/grounding....basically everything. I was always taught that when doing a guide or diagram, make it easy for an alien to understand, well I am that alien and am in need of an alien proof diagram. Thank you so much. Peace, Love, Empathy Charlie
  10. I new to the community and I am preparing to change my first set of pickups in my new Mustang, but from the spec sheets I found online it looks a little confusing with all of the phase switching wires inside. Ultimately, I'm wondering do I even bother with those other wires or just focus on disconnecting the old pickup solder points and reconnect the new pickup wires to those old solder points? Any photos, instructions, drawn diagrams, or anything will be much appreciated. Thanks.
  11. Hello all. I'm hoping for some wiring assistance. Here's the scoop: CIJ RI Fender Mustang. 2004 approx. Current pups are single coils, don't think they are stock though. I am the second owner, looks like previous owner installed staggered single coils (brand unknown, both neck & bridge read 5.8K on the back of the pup). I am replacing the bridge pickup with a Seymour Duncan Lil' Screamin' Demon single-coil sized humbucker. I also picked up CTS 500K pots (audio taper). One of them is push/pull. The tone cap I have to install is .022uF. I am looking to wire it for the following switch settings: (headstock------tailpiece) -0- -0- both pickups off -0- 0-- bridge on (forward) -0- --0 bridge on (back) 0-- -0- neck on (forward) --0 -0- neck on (back) 0-- 0-- both pups on, in phase --0 --0 both pups on, in phase 0-- --0 both pups on, out of phase --0 0-- both pups on, out of phase My aim is to have the push/pull as the tone pot. Pushed in, humbucker, pulled out single coil. So for the aforementioned settings, the settings with both pickups would be bridge as humbucker when pushed. Then bridge as single coil when pulled. And with the bridge-only pup setting, the same push/pull controls. I want the out of phase settings to be humcanceling, regardless of humbucker/single coil push/pull. Is this possible? I can't seem to find a wiring diagram for this specifically. Does anyone have a simpler idea to achieve these (or comparable) settings? Thanks!
  12. Today, my new Squier VM Jaguar started making a static-y noise. It's buzzes erratically when I'm not playing and buzzes constantly while a note is played. Notes come through fine, but the accompanying static makes playing it unbearable. This stops entirely when I touch the metal plates on the guitar, but it does NOT stop when I touch the strings. Perhaps a grounding problem- Any thoughts?
  13. Hey guys! I'm totally new to soldering and wiring and all that, so I decided that my Jag-Stang will be the red-headed stepchild of my collection, and endure all my abuse. I have decided to rewire my Jag-Stang like so: And for some reason, I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong? My single coil has an output of 6.8k, and when I tap it with my pliers, I don't hear anything unless I turn my amp all the way up past-55%. I'm still using a "dummy" humbucker until my GFS Crunchy Rail comes in the mail.
  14. Sup yo, I've been playin around with an idea for an alternate wiring for my Jag which would consist of completely getting rid of the circuit selection concept and replace it by having 2 tone and 2 volume pots just like a standard Les Paul wiring with the 2 rollers at the upper horn housing as the tones and the 2 normal pots at the bottom housing the 2 volumes. The main problem I can see with it is that I'd have to have really long wires attached to the capacitors between the volume and tone pots. Is that a problem at all? Would it work? I'm still pretty new to doing my own wiring so I'm really not sure how it'll work. I'd really like to hear what y'all think of this idea and your speculations as to whether it will work Cheers, Amnesiac
