nathanshaneaol.com Posted September 29, 2000 Share Posted September 29, 2000 I play a Parker Nitefly, and use a stereo cord for the output signals...humbucker/single on tip, and piezo on the ring. Nothing new there. But I want to run the single coils via the 5-way selector switch out a completely separate 1/4" output jack mounted on the backside if the guitar. I will disconnect the humbucker from the 5-way switch and connect it to the volume/tone pots as is typical of guitars. And then just take the single coils output from the 5-way switch straight to its own 1/4" jack, bypassing any volume/tone controls. This is so each signal 1)humbucker, 2)single coil, 3)piezo can go to their own dedicated fx units, and I will select which signal to use with foot switches rather than my hands. The mounting screws/nuts of the 5-way switch are still connected to a common ground with the humbuckers/piezo via the gounding foil that is attached to the backside of the pickguard. Does this create a ground loop problem? Should I make sure the single coil has no ground contact with the others via the 5-way switch? I know this is an odd way to do things, but I just want separate outputs for each signal. Thanks for any ideas... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
