  • EMG Pickup wiring question

    Does anyone know if you can switch between 1 EMG 85 and an 1 EMG SA (single coil) via a les paul style pickup selector?
    If so can you just use EMG's direction for blade style selector?

    Also, can you bypass a pickup selector all together and use a couple of mini toggles to turn them on and off Does anybody know where I could get a diagram for such a wiring setup?

    thanks so much...

      I tried the mini-toggle with an 85/SA combo in a Warrior Pro. When I switched from the SA to the 85, I got a "whump" sound cuz the toggle wasn't rated that high.
      I want to depart this world the same way I arrived; screaming and covered in someone else's blood

        I don't see why there would be any problem. Just wire the switch into the circuit like you would with any other pickup.

          you probably got the "whump" sound because you didn't wire the pickups on together in the midle setting. so when you switched from top to bottom you hear the drop out and then back on of sound.
