    Series Parallel dpdt switch

    I have a Les Paul with a 2 wire neck HB PU and a 4 conductor Bridge PU. I want to install a dpdt ON ON switch that can do series parallel to my bridge pickup. Is there a diagram for this? How can I do this mod?

    Thanks

    tons of diagrams all over the internet and a wiring thread on this forum.

    can be done with a regular switch, or on a push/pull pot

    Please Don't add a switch....use a push/pull pot. Or maybe a push/push pot

    it's an easy thing to do.

    thr previous owner of one of my sg's STUPIDLY added two mini switches one for the phase of EACH pickup.

    First. Easy to do with ONE switch. Second, use a switch attached to a pot.

    Correct. I edited above with the conversion chart.
