Professional wiring diagram - the highest-quality documentation in the industry
Connecting two coils in series rather than parallel yields markedly different results. On Teles with 2 pickups, traditional parallel wiring provides relatively consistent output across all three positions. But a Tele with its pickups wired in series produces higher output and a fatter tone. A 4-position switch allows players to have both wiring options available.
Our SS2 and SS3 wiring kits are very similar, the difference is in which switch position yields the series combination. SS3 places the series combination in position 3. This layout mimics a normal Tele a little more closely than Fender's layout.
• Position 4: Neck Pickup
• Position 3: Bridge + Neck Pickups in Series
• Position 2: Bridge + Neck Pickups in Parallel
• Position 1: Bridge Pickup
Players with reverse-wound, reverse-polarity pickups receive the additional benefit of hum-cancellation in positions 2 and 3.
If your neck pickup has a cover, the cover must be isolated from the pickup's black wire and a separate ground wire added to it in order to maintain its shielding capability (if your neck pickup is uncovered, then this is a non-issue).
