Superswitch wiring help.

Post by Reg18 »

I’ve got a Mr Glyn Pandora bridge pickup on the way which has 3 taps for different outputs.
It’s going to replace the Cruel Mistress which is currently in my Tele as it apparently has the Cruel Mistress as one of its taps anyway.
I’m either going to put a push pull pot in to get 2 different sounds off the pickup or a Strat 5 way Super switch to get all 3 sounds.
There’s not much info on how to wire up a super switch online, can anyone offer a diagram on wiring a Tele with 2 pickups but with 3 different wires on the bridge pickup?

The best info perhaps is from the stewmac site: https://www.stewmac.com/video-and-ideas ... nd-wiring/

However what about using a 3 way blade with each position for one of the taps and then a push-pull to bring the neck pickup into the circuit?

You would just use one side of the 3 way, one pin is the common and the other 3 are your 3 positions.

Email Glyn. I remember he posted up a wiring diagram for a 3 way tele switch to do it, but I cant find the diagram.
