    I am attempting to customize a Epi Les Paul, new pick ups and parts. The model is the Black Beauty, which is a three pick up model presently wired like this

    I want to add 4 conductor pick ups to the neck and bridge and utilize a split coil system. I have searched high and low on the net for the exact config but I have not found a three pick up diagram. The best I can find is this

    I am not very adept at wiring diagrams but I am assuming that when the push pull pot is activated to the split coil position that the selector toggle will still work. In other words when in split coil mode the selector will give me north, north and south, south. But I am uncertain about this.

    What I was really trying to do was have a seperate split coil option one for the north pickup and one for the south allowing the option of humbucking north single coil south or vice versa. I thought that by adding a second push pull pot that this could be accomplished, but again I am uncertain.

    The middle pick up which will remain is a two wire pick up that I wanted to add a single toggle to on/off and will be wired the same way as the original diagram with the added switch breaking the circuit to the selector switch. [/img]

    Well after pondering this for awhile I did realize that the selector switch will not not do what I was hoping in my first post. After further hours of research I did find this wiring diagram but it has the switches on the tone pots (which is not an issue if it works) it just that all the other diagrams had these switches on the volume pots. Is there any difference in how it works
