    HELP Please, Steve Morse Y2D wiring diagram needed

    Hi

    Could someone please send me an email with Y2D pickups wiring or maybe a
    link to a web site?

    I've checked Dimarzio wirings but they've got it only for the original Steve Morse guitar
    and none for the Y2D.

    I'm currently modding my SUB1 with new pickguard and two Steve Morse Humbuckers in the neck and bridge, plus HS3 next to the bridge pup.
    I've been thinking on using two push pull pots so I could also split the coils on the buckers.
    Should I use 500k or 250k pots in the SUB1?

    My email:
    deekayman@gmail.com

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't have wiring diagram for the Morse, though I'm sure someone round here does. Beej, Tommy?

    Morse prefer 250k Ohm pots (the single coil gets too bright with 500k Ohm).

    Thanks a lot Beej, DrKev on your quick response and Diagram.
    Appreciated very much.

    Another related question that I have for you is :

    Morse bridge bucker that I'm planning to install is standard spacing while SUB1 guitar has got F-style spacing
    on the bridge/saddles.

    I know that Steve have used those standard spacing bucker coz of the Gibson bridge
    but I'm pretty sure that I've seen photos with him holding one of his guitars with Floyd bridge, and it clearly showed that strings are running outside the magnet poles of the bridge bucker!!

    It must have been one of the earlier guitars coz later on I found photos where he must have used a F-spacing bridge bucker on his Floyd equipped guitars.

    Have you ever tried to use standard spacing bucker with wider spaced saddles and have
    you noticed any problems or loss of signal?

    Any other reasons why not use the standard spacing pup in the same situation as mine ...or you think
    that it's not a problem at all.

    Thank you

    I wouldn't worry about it, the strings don't need to be exactly over the poles.

    beej - you're a nice guy and all to do this (at least that's what I've heard ) - but you sure get bugged a lot.

    Why can't this be posted somewhere for people to download at their leisure? Would be great to have on the EBMM website!
