I don't know if posting this link will work. You may need to log on to your facebook first. Someone can maybe move it to a better photo hosting site.

I think the switching works.

Nope the link didn't work. I'll try somethin else.

Sent $40 to Chris to buy a star. Hopefully can be allowed to add a photo again soon. Never noticed all of my stars were gone.

Try this link

Link thingy

Link works.


But it you'd like a non-attributable link to a pic, go to www.imgbb.com and post your pic there.

You need no account; there's no sign-up required unless you want to "manage" (curate? haha) your pics on the site.

It's easy. You simply hit the site and click on the Start Uploading button. Navigate to and select the pic you want to upload and click the Upload button. When you get the Upload Complete (and green check mark), *copy that URL in the lower block* before you close the page. That URL is your pic location

and it looks like this

I finally got my sloes plated in the ground. Been wanting to grow theses for nearly 20 years and had failure after failure. These 5 plants have been in spackle buckets for two years -- started with eight plants but three didn't make through this last winter. They're maybe 30 inches tall now and seem to have grown a few inches since I put them in the ground a week ago so root shock doesn't seem to be a problem. The soil is sandy and not very rich but it drains well. Hopefully see some fruit at the end of next year if the moles don't get to the roots. Three years ago I lost 25 smaller plants to moles that I had purchased as seedlings.

wrnch, I would be happy to check your wiring diagram, but I don't understand it.

In the bottom area labeled "Super Switch," I see 40 lugs, so it looks like you are using two superswitches. But it's not clear to me if one superswitch comprises two rows, each row being 10 lugs wide, or if each superswitch comprises a single column of four rows, each row being 5 lugs wide.

Also, in the bottom left quadrant of that area, there are 10 lugs which, according to their color codes, are connected to various pickup hot and negative leads and ground, but no connection to any output. Something must be missing there.

If you drew a schematic in preparation for your wiring diagram, it might be helpful to post that as well.

Hmmm. I double checked at Allparts and the superswitch is exactly like I drew it. One superswitch is a 4-pole 5-position switch. You also gotta remember that the common terminals are at the opposite ends on the superswitch.

OOOPS mega brain fart.

Anything past 3,4,5 & 7 switching options just does my head in.

Admittedly I'm a pretty ordinary player, but I just can't imagine any scenario where I would require (or desire) more than that.

I know... I'm just being a party pooper.

A sloe is a small, bitter, plum-like berry. Great for flavoring sauces, syrups, and drinks.

Well, TNRWWT (there's nothing really wrong with that). One way or another, it's going to take a lot of switching horsepower to give jakezaaq all the combination he wants.

But what I really don't understand is the two poles in the lower left corner that have all kinds of things going in and nothing going out.

On the right side, the hot side of the pickup goes to the volume pot. The left side provides the path for ground side of the pickup to connect to the hot of the next pickup in series with the exception of position #5. None of the pickups actually have their ground sides soldered to ground. Also, Ground is always made available via a switch. On the very far left, those are the common terminals where middle ground and neck ground can be applied to the next pickup hot.

Here's my take on it (link).

This is the best solution I can come up with that gives the OP *all* of the 14 combinations he requested and has a reasonably easy to understand user interface.

There are two 5-way switches, one for parallel mode, one for series mode. There's a two-position rotary switch that selects which mode your are in.

In parallel mode, you get the five basic Strat combinations. There is an 'Add Bridge' switch that enables you to get N+B and N+M+B. There is also a bridge phase switch that enables you to get N+B'. The 'Add Bridge' switch is only effective in parallel mode, the bridge phase switch is active in either mode.

In series mode, you get N*M, M*B, N*B, N*B', N*M*B, and the parallel/series combination of N+(M*B').

The 5-way switch for parallel mode is a standard Strat switch. The 5-way switch for series mode is a double-wafer Superswitch. I would probably use 2-position slide switches for the bridge phase switch and 'Add Bridge' switch, but you could use toggles. The rotary switch uses 5 poles of a 6P2T switch such as available on eBay.

Key to notation: + = parallel, * = series, ' = out of phase.

I guess the OP is gone for good and perhaps will never see this, but at least I got it out of my system.
