LAMBERTONES HUMBUCKER COLOR CODE

"the Triple Shot" SSS 5-way Switch, 1 Vol, 2 Tone, Independent Tone Control for Bridge Position

Switch Positions:
Position 1 - Bridge
Position 2 - Bridge/Middle (hum-cancelling)
Position 3 - Middle
Position 4 - Middle/Neck (hum-cancelling)
Position 5 - Neck

This wiring schematic uses a standard 5-way blade switch and (3) 250k pots. Our personal preference is to use a 0.022uF cap (typically suggested for humbuckers) instead of the pictured 0.047uF because of the finer and "usable" tone sweep. This is optional and up to your discretion. The 2nd tone pot affects the bridge positions only, for example, you have full tone (10) on position 5 for a rhythm section then switch to your bridge pickup for a pre-chorus but like the tone rolled back at (8) without the need to rotate the knob during the switch.

"the Triple Shot" HSS w/"the Crema/Grinder" 5-way Switch, 1 Vol, 1 Tone, 1 500k Push/Pull Tone

Store image

Switch Positions:
Position 1 - Bridge humbucker (when Push/Pull engaged splits to North polarity SLUG side)
Position 2 - Bridge/Middle (Push/Pull engaged splits to SLUG side and maintains phase and hum-cancelling)
Position 3 - Middle
Position 4 - Middle/Neck (hum-cancelling)
Position 5 - Neck

This wiring schematic utilizes a 4-wire humbucker in the bridge position and a 500k CTS push/pull pot. You can substitute with an Alpha style pot by soldering the red/white to the C1 position. The push/pull allows you to split the humbucker in either position 1 or 2. In position 2, the humbucker splits to the North polarity CW SLUG side to maintain phase and polarity with the South polarity CCW middle pickup. The push/pull tone pot rolloff only affects the bridge positions, and the 1st tone affects the neck and middle positions.

NOTE:
CW - Clockwise
CCW - Counter Clockwise
This diagram works with a 3 or 4-wire humbucker only. Replacing the push/pull pot with a standard 500k potentiometer will work with either a 2, 3, or 4-wire humbucker.
