Wiring diagram for 2xSD buckers and Kiesel 5way

Postby Tabare777 » Sun Apr 23, 2017 5:34 am

Hi folks having pickups changed over to Sentient/Pegasus on my spalt top DC800.
Bought a 5way, pots and a cap for tone from Kiesel, my amp tech is doing the job but even though I gave him SD diagram for that config, he says it's not working properly the way I want it.

Pos 1 Bridge full
Pos 2 bridge & neck inner coils
Pos 3 bridge & neck full
Pos 4 neck outer coil
Pos 5 neck full

Anybody got a suitable diagram?

Thanks in advance :mrgreen:

I can see it working this way with a normal 5 way switch:

1: Bridge humbucker
2: Bridge single coil
3: Bridge/Neck single coil
4. Neck single coil
5. Neck humbucker

To get what you're wanting would require a 5 way super switch, or the normal 5 way wired normally, and a push/pull pot for coil splitting.

/\ What he said.

I don't know what kind of 5-way you have or what diagram your tech was going by? (Link to the SD diagram?)
Kiesel's 5-way does not directly link to pos 2,4 as it combines them internally within the switch, making this next to impossible. Your pos 1,3, 5 seem "standard", but in pos 2,4 you're distributing the hot signal (and possibly ground) and including the tap leads in various not-so-easy/straightforward ways.
For instance, when you typically want to include "inner" (or outer) coils of 2 p/ups, you're typically including the hot signal to 1 p/up tap and ground to the other.

Thanks guys, he's trying with a Fender super switch at the moment after not having luck with the Kiesel switch, fingers crossed for success...

I'll post a test clip once it's done, thanks for the diagram also!!!
