Help with Washburn N24 wiring
« on: November 24, 2018, 09:59:10 pm »
I'm trying to replace the dull Washburn neck pickup in my N24 with a Duncan Jazz. But, I want to be sure what I have before I start disconnecting things. What I'm seeing doesn't match any of the wiring diagrams that I'm finding online. It's 2 Humbucker, 1 push/pull volume for coil split, 3 way toggle. The diagrams are only showing wires soldered to 4 of the 6 spots on the push/pull pot. But mine has wires soldered to all 6. The gray wire that I'm holding is the neck pickup wire. It appears to have a black grounded to the pot, a green and a red soldered to the far right lug of the push/pull, and a white soldered to the far left lug of the push/pull.

Guitarelectronics.com has a lot of diagrams. Be prepared to piece a few together to fit your needs.

I didn't find any diagrams that match what I have in the N24.

There are many ways to wire a coil tap. The diagrams you have seen probably show the normal way which would provide you with the inside coil as the active coil.

It looks like the wiring in your guitar is so that when split the outside coil of the neck pickup is active - which is by the way my preference as well. With the SD Jazz, the green wire would go to ground, black would go where the white wire is, and white and red would go where green and red are.

Good luck,
Stephan
