Hey folks!


I have a Strat style guitar that I want to rewire with Wilkinson hot rail humbuckers. The way I want to wire it is to have a volume pot for each pickup, and a single pot to control the tone for all three pickups. Additionally, I want to do away with the 5-way switch altogether, and put 3 small toggle switches in it's place - an on/off switch for each of the 3 pickups so that any 1, 2, or all 3 of the pickups can be on or off at any time. Can anyone point me to a diagram showing how this should be wired? Thanks!

Here are the 3 pickups:

Neck

Middle

Bridge

I don't have a diagram, but just think of it as 3 of the same circuits in parallel + one master tone.

Which means: 3x(Pickup -> volume -> toggle -> to master tone) -> output

Of course, one wire of the pickup goes to GND (ground)
The volume pot has one leg going to GND
The master tone has one leg attached to a capacitor going to GND
The output has one connection to GND

Maybe this description is confusing. But you might use a "one pickup" wiring diagram, except you add a on/off toggle in the signal path. You repeat the wiring for the other pickups. And then run all 3 through the master tone and to the output.
