This is what I don't get.
If you look at this page:
Just over halfway down you will see:
Fender style 3-way & 5-way Switches.
In that section you will see what they call an "enclosed box switch".
The part I do not fully understand is when they say "Pole A&B are
usually combined by wiring them together".
What exactly do they mean by that?
Can someone explain to me how this switch would be wired in laymans
Ordinary tele switches are double-pole, double-throw (strats are usually dp, triple-throw).
The lever connects each "pole" connection (signal) to the other 2 or 3 contacts.
One side of the switch throws the pickup connections toward the output.
The other side connects the tone pot(s) to the pole, and by bridging the poles together,
we connect combinations of tone pots and pickups together to go to the output jack.
If you look at fender diagrams you can see that there are 4 connections on each side,
one for pickups, one for pots, and a wire bridging one side of the wafer to the other.
The imported switches have all the contacts on a circuit board. You need to figure out
which contact is one pole (with it's associated "throws") vs. the other and connect them.
and that's assuming you have a standard switch in your EXP, and not one of the megaswitches.
the exp has many pickup options, Im not sure what you have to work with, and what you want.
The Dimarzio has 4 conductors, how many does the EMG have? do you have a 3-way or 5-way switch?
Both pickups have four wires, but I am only using two. The switch is
an imported three way switch which has eight lugs in a row on one
side. I have found some diagrams but the problem is the diagrams show
different hook ups...not sure what will work correctly.
