    Albert Lee HH question

    So I am having trouble determining what the pick up selector positions are on my Albert Lee HH with coil split. I will bet someone on here knows the answer. :-)

    Albert Lee HH question

    This is the current model. I am referring to the Guitar Center run that had the coil tap.

    I cannot find a schematic but I guess only positions 1, 3 and 5 are affected. You can find out by touching the different coil areas of the pickups with a screw driver in the various pickup selector positions to see which coils are active.

    Great idea! Did not think of that. I assume that you are correct but would like to know for sure. I am not sure how much I will use the tap since I really like the 2 and 4 positions but would like to know, anyway.

    1 and 5 are split, to the outside coils. I believe ... and someone can correct me if I'm wrong ... that position 3 becomes a combination of a bridge coil in series with a a neck and bridge coil in parallel.

    (I have an Axis wiring diagram showing a coil split and thought the AL was the same way.)

    Ah, great. That's the same schematic I've seen then.

    May I kindly ask where to find the schematic? Under that link I "only" find the coil combinations (which is cool), but I am considering doing this to my guitars too and would like to see it in a schematic.

    Contact customer service and let them know you want the wiring diagram for the Al HH guitar center version.

    So ... anyone that has the factory coil split AL or Axis ... any chance of posting a sound clip from position 3? I'd love to know what that sounds like.

    Middle position w/ coils split.... to me it almost sounds like a strong out-of-phase tone. It's a great sound actually. Sorry I'm not set up for recording....
