Two volume no tone wiring!! Please help! Feb 24, 1. Posts: Hey guys been a while since I've been on here, can anybody help with this? I want to wire my tele up on two independent volumes, on a standard 3 way switch, I've tried the Seymour Duncan method and just got a horrible buzz and nothing else.

I wired it as per tele specs and everything worked just both the volumes consoled both of the pickups. If anybody has any diagrams or can knock one up it would be much appreciated! Feb 24, 2. Is this the schematic you used? Did you use a gibson style switch or blade switch?

Feb 24, 3. Age: 44 Posts: 14, You've got a grounding problem, probably in addition to another problem. Do you have a multimeter? It's the main tool used to troubleshoot electronics, so if you don't have one you should get one. You should also get some alligator clip test leads so you can test different connections without soldering.

The diagram that Telemodder gave you is perfect. Let me explain it a little bit: Each pickup is connected to the input of a volume pot.

The output from the volume pot goes to the switch. The output of the switch the common lug goes to the tip of the jack. The ground wire for each pickup, the back of each pot, and the sleeve of the jack are all grounded. Think of the sleeve as the main ground point, and all your other grounds need to connect to it.

This logic applies no matter what switch type you use. If tracing your wires doesn't find the solution, I'd start by connecting just one pickup to the jack directly so you can figure out how it works.

There are only 2 possible combinations, and one of them should result in clear, mostly buzz-free operation. There will be some standard cycle noise from your pickup, and if your soldering iron is plugged in to the same circuit it can cause a buzz. Once you get the first pickup working, add the volume pot. When you get the wiring with the volume pot working, add the switch. When you get the switch working, add the other pickup. I know it seems tedious, but when you're new at this, making lots of changes at once makes it almost impossible to figure out what you're really doing.

When something goes wrong, you've got too many things to check to make sure they're working.

Im using a blade switch, the one with the 4 pegs either side, not too sure on how to wire the switch up right, I'm so used to following diagrams that any out of the box wiring so to speak becomes a problem. So should I just wire it up like the Duncan diagram?

Any help with the way to wire the switch would be great. It wast that diagram I used its was this Its the same style switch in using. Feb 24, 5. You can use that switch, no problem. Instead of wiring the pickups directly to the switch, you're going to connect the output of the volume controls to the switch instead. The output of the neck volume control will go to the same lug on the switch as the neck pickup does in your diagram.

Feb 24, 7. If you sit down and draw it out, you'll have it in no time flat. It's very, very simple: pickup to volume pot, volume pot to switch, switch to jack. Look at the diagram you posted. See where the neck pickup connects? That's where the output of your volume pot will connect. Same for the bridge pickup.
