Hi! I have a question about guitar wiring. I'm running 2 PAFs and the more I read, the more I want to experiment. I really want to try out the out-of-phase thing but following a regular schematic will be very tough in my case. Is it possible to connect the whole humbucker to a switch (DPDT) and solder the signal wire that is supposed to come out of it to the toggle switch? Originally, the signal wire would be soldered into the toggle and the other wires into the switch but that won't work for me. And if yes, which pickup should be connected to the switch, if that matters?

Hi Adam, the easiest way using a DPDT switch is like this:-

If I were to do this, I would get a push pull dpdt switch built into a pot so no holes would need to be drilled.

Thank you! This version seems easier to connect.

I've tried those and I always ended up being annoyed and gave up because the wires are clustered and connecting the last wires was a real pain. I got this guitar specifically to learn these things, so I'm not damaging a piece of history

Does it make a difference which pickup is connected to it?
