FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Stratocasters / Fender HSS with S1 - Bridge and Middle in Series (OR) Bridge in Parallel



Sep 22nd, 2016 06:25 PM   Edit   Profile   Print Topic   Search Topic

Hello Folks,

I've got a Fender American Deluxe HSS strat with S1 switching system. The guitar came with SCN pickups in neck and middle and a Fender DH1 in the bridge position. I didn't like sound of the pickups so I swapped them with Kinman AVn-69 (neck and middle) and Seymour Duncan 59/Custom Hybrid bridge humbucker.

However, the schematic that was on it has the humbucker in series in position 1 whether the s1 switch is down or up. So, basically I have 9 sounds on the guitar.
Is there a way to have one of the following options.

Scenario 1
S1 Up - Bridge humbucker in parallel
S1 down - Bridge humbucker in series

Scenario 2
S1 Up - Bridge humbucker in series
S1 down - Bridge humbucker + middle in series

The current wiring on it is Andybighair's wiring except the wire next to the smily which coil splits the humbucker. I do not want to coil split but use one of the above scenarios.

Link to the wiring diagram:

Thanks & regards,
