Actually, in the following diagram, there's a thingy on the lower right hand corner labeled J soldered to a couple points on the tone pot. What the hell is that? Fish Yeah, that was my first thought, too. The 'Shack should have it unless they suck and don't. Where do I connect to ground on a 3-way tele switch? Yeah, but my question was, where do I connect the ground wire on the switch itself? Could someone please look at this diagram and help me with where to attach the ground wire that runs from the volume pot to the switch, keeping in mind I'm using a standard 3-way tele switch.
The switch shown in the diagram is more of a Gibson style or something, not sure but in any case, the diagram for that switch the one in the diagram shown has a pole that actually says "ground. Where does the ground wire from the volume pot get soldered to on a 3-way tele switch?? Is that correct? How could one type of switch need to be grounded but another not? From the looks of the diagram, they have a gnd wire running from the switch to the back of the k pot on the left.
Please re-read my post. Not "where does it go to? Sorry if I sound like a dick, but this is the 2nd time someone's answered with the opposite of what I'm asking.Upgrade your original Telecaster or Expand the switching of your Tele with a 4-way mod switch that combines the Upgrade your original Gibson or Gibson style guitar with the highest quality electric parts Upgrade your original Gibson or Gibson style guitar with the highest quality electric Upgrade your original Telecaster or Tele style guitar with Upgrade your original Telecaster or Tele style guitar with the Upgrade your original Jazz Bass or J-Bass style instrument with the highest quality electric parts available.

With my Dualtone and DualtoneII, each coil is wound differently for a different tone altogether. So I came up with this switching to allow you to cut to whichever coil desired.
2 Humbuckers, 1 Volume, 1 Tone, 3-Way, 1 Push/Pull
It only requires a single on-on-on switch slider or toggle it keeps each coil in phase when combined with a reverse wound middle pickup, or another dualtone type Pickup Swap Shop. Pickup Winding. Repair tips.

We had them custom made to our specification to have the smoothest taper possible and the tightest tolerance available. The switch contacts are side-mounted which makes them ready to drop into most guitars without the need for deeper routing. There are a number of wiring options with these pots that can give any guitarist total control over their sound.
Tightest tolerance available! Featuring reduced shaft wobble, low noise output, and smooth rotational feel, the Series G is supplied with standard tin-plated rear cover and solder lug terminals.

These are NOT spring loaded push pull switches! This means you must grasp and lift the knob, which is a slow, distracting, imprecise and clunky process on a Strat style knob. Grasp and pull is just not as good as spring loaded popup.We are still working for you! A Push-Pull Pot can add a ton of versatility to your guitar!
You can use them to reverse the phase, split a Humbucker, or trick your guitar out in a fresh way. They can be a little tricky to wrap your head around, but once you get the basics, they are easy to understand. Even though they look combined, they are actually separate. As described in our previous article, the Pot is a variable resistor. It has a resistance strip and a sweeper to choose the resistance.
Lug 1 is the start of the resistance strip, and Lug 3 is the end. Lug 2, or the middle lug, is the sweeper. The other part of the Push-Pull pot is the Switch. The DPDT switch has two sides. See below for an illustration of the Commons:. Check it out:. Coil Splitting is just one of the many things you can do with a push-pull pot and is a great place to start our understanding of them.
For illustration, we drew this out for you below. We used both sides of the switch to illustrate two points:. Coil Splitting can sound great on higher output humbuckers, like our Modern P. But what if you have a low-output humbucker, like our Pure P. Fear not. When you pull up on the push-pull pot, B connects to A, and your Slug Coil will be sent to ground, only this time, it goes through a resistor. This prevents the whole signal from being grounded by putting a partial short across the coil, instead of a full short.
Phase Reversing is a neat little trick when you want to reverse the coil direction of your pickup.
FRALIN PICKUPS WIRING DIAGRAMS
To do this, you need 2-Conductor Wire. Remember to ground the Shield Bare. When pulled up, The phase reverses! This mod is pretty cool! With this mod, you can use two different tone caps with one push-pull pot.
When pushed down, you can have to say, a. Country, Blues, and Rock guitarists love this as it keeps their crisp highs when they roll down the volume.
Pulling up on your Push Pull Pot sends your signal through the Volume Kit — your guitar keeps its shimmer! This will remove the Volume Kit when you pull up. The Bright Switch has more parts involved, thus it is a bit more complicated. When your Push-Pull pot is down, all the wiring is the same as a Strat or a Tele.
When the switch is up, the ground lifts off of the tone pot and the volume pot. This allows your signal to connect directly to the output jack, with no Load.Guitarists are always looking for ways to get fresh tones.
Amplifiers and effect pedals do a great job of shaping your sound once it leaves your guitar, but there are also many simple modifications that you can make right in the body of your guitar, unlocking a world of new tones. Understanding push-pull potentiometers is a good skill to have when you want to know how to add extras to your guitar without making any permanent changes.
Quite often, you will require a switch to turn new modifications on and off, and this can present a problem if you do not want to drill holes into the body of your guitar. Enter, the push-pull potentiometer push-pull pota way to dual-purpose controls already present on your guitar.
The push-pull pot turns a simple volume or tone control into a volume-plus toggle switch, or a tone-plus toggle switch. A push-pull pot is an electrical component used in electric guitars and basses. The switch is activated by pulling it out of, or pushing it back into, the rotary shaft of the pot. Push-pull potentiometers offer you a way to add a switch to your guitar without making any permanent changes.
If you get tired of the mod, you can always go back to your original ones. Since then, they have also been used to split humbuckers, change pickup phase, switch between series and parallel wiring schemes, add a kill switch, function as a tone control bypass switch, and lots more.
They have even been used to toggle on and off an onboard tuner. You can purchase push-pull pots in almost any resistance value, so if you use a k pot as your tone control, you can replace it with a k push-pull pot. A single pole single throw switch can also be called an on-off switch. An SPST switch can only be on connection madeor off connection broken. A double pole double throw switch can also be called an on-on switch, which means that the switch alternates between two different connections.
In one position, there is a connection on Circuit-A, but no connection on Circuit-B. In the other position, there is a connection on Circuit-B, but no connection on Circuit-A.
This type of switch is suitable for switching between pickup configurations or switching between series and parallel wiring. The primary downfall of the push-pull pot is that the switching mechanism is attached to the bottom of the potentiometer, and it can be quite bulky, requiring more space to install it into your guitar.
So, you might want to consider using the push-pull pot in your next project and open a world of hidden possibilities that are entirely reversible. In fact, there are several projects that use the push-pull pot right here at Humbucker Soup, so have a look around. Your email address will not be published.

What is a Push-Pull Potentiometer? Resistance Values You can purchase push-pull pots in almost any resistance value, so if you use a k pot as your tone control, you can replace it with a k push-pull pot. This type of switch is suitable for mods such as splitting a pickup or doing a coil tap. Double Pole Double Throw A double pole double throw switch can also be called an on-on switch, which means that the switch alternates between two different connections.

Here is a look at a standard volume or tone control pot.May 27, 1. Sep 11, Atlantic Beach, FL. Hi, I thought this would be a good sub-form to post this question. Knob 1: Stacked Volume for location convenience, and one handed fade ins I'm looking at the AG diagrams, and one I got from best bass gear, and getting some feedback out in web land, and I'm confused.
Is this completely off to Mars, or off base? Whatever anyone can help me with would be hugely appreciated!
May 27, 2. May 27, 3. Hi Line6man, Much appreciate your diagram Wondering if I should view yours upside down based on what I show in my photo, as the vantage point does make a difference. Is your diagram a standard DPDT switch, and do these push pull variations have the same layout?
Any thoughts on the other connections on the pot? Thanks again! May 27, 4. You haven't said exactly what you want the pot to do. Do you want it to do nothing when the bass is in active mode and be a tone knob when it is passive? Or do you want the tone pot to always be in the circuit? May 27, 5.Dual Humbuckers with Master Vol/Tone and Coil Splits
May 28, 6. I see. Connect S5 and S6. S3 receives hot from volume. S4 goes to the jack. S1 goes the the preamp in. S2 receives the preamp out. S6 goes to the tone pot as hot and wire the tone pot as you would on any passive instrument. May 28, 7. Jan 8, Jordanstown, Northern Ireland. This is good for me too May 28, 8. If you use this switching scheme: seymourduncan. I can draw up a schematic, but it wont be until later.
Understanding Push-Pull Potentiometers (SPST & DPDT)
May 28, 9. Thanks FBB and David! I'll examine all the info, and give the soldering gun a whirl tonight. This is great actually! The whole passive tone option is a cool route in my opinion.
