Wiring a Split Coil Humbucker to a 5 way switch

Postby Duppy on Tue Jul 12, 2011 10:12 am

I'm putting together a Tele type body with a humbucker in the bridge position and a P90 in the neck.

The selector switch and pots I have are out of a Strat. Firstly should I change the pots for 500k's and what value cap should I put in there?

Secondly could I hook up the coil tap of the humbucker to the 5 way switch so that in the bridge setting it will be full on humbucker then in the second position it will be the coil tap?
