    Silhouette Special Wiring Schematic

    I'm trying to reinstall the original configuration (HSS) from (HH) of my MM Silhouette Special with the Silent Circuit. But I can't seem to find wiring schematics online. Does anybody have one?

    Hi and welcome. I'd email EBMM customer service. They will likely be able to help.

    Lyndly, send me a Private Message with your email address. Also use the Music Man Serial number tool and tell me the date of birth of your guitar. I have a schematic but it changed a little over the years and I need to know which one to send you.

    Hey!
    Is there a way anyone could send me a wiring diagram for a Silhouette Special? I want my HSS Silhouette Special to have 2 push/pull pots. One for setting the humbucker in series/parallel and the second for switching to the middle pickup on it's own. All the other position should stay like the original Silhouette Special wiring!
    Thanks so much,
    Louis

    Email [email protected] along with your serial. There are several revisions to the Silhouette Special, so you'll want to get the right one. Also I believe DrKev here has a few of them handy.

    My two cents though- you'll need to think through the series/parallel wiring as it's going to mess up the split positions when in parallel. (You'll get the parallel bridge in parallel with another pickup in two of the positions, and no sound in one position.)

    Instead, I would suggest wiring up the bridge for a coil split (using the Silent Circuit), since you can wire that up so it doesn't affect any of the other positions.

    We've PM'd. I think he wants a custom diagram to do what he needs. I can do that but its takes time to do with no errors and produce so someone else can do the wiring right and I'd have to charge for my time.
