The largest reading was from 1 to 3, and would be the reading through both windings so that would be from 1 through common to 3. This tells you that the 2 terminal is the common terminal. “You have identified the “C” the common terminal as the number 2 terminal,” Bob explained. ”Now we know from process of deduction what the other 2 terminals are. The shortest winding with the least resistance is the run winding so terminal 2 to terminal 1 is the smallest resistance making the 1 terminal the “R” run terminal. The only terminal we have left is the “3” terminal and that makes it the start terminal. You can now take the red wire and put it on the run terminal, the white wire on the common terminal and the black wire on the start terminal.
How do you do this? How do you do this? Glad you asked: We covered this before in “Preparing Your Tele for Future Mods.” If you have a Strat pickup, a P-90, or some similar single-coil in the neck position, you can skip this step. For all other pickups sporting a metal cover that’s connected to the pickup’s ground, you’ll need to break this connection before you proceed. It Shows the wiring, which looks familiar but is a little bit more complex than standard Telecaster’s wiring. The important detail here is to connect the hot wire from the neck pickup to the volume pot’s input lug, rather than directly to the switch, which is the usual approach. There are other ways to accomplish the mod, but this is my favorite method because it’s simple to wire and you can easily reverse the mod or upgrade to a 4-way switching system at a later date. And the beauty of this is we still have the familiar operation of a standard Telecaster 3-way selector. The only change is the new sound for the middle position; the other two settings are not affected. Also, you can incorporate other mods into this wiring, such as the ’50s wiring that I’ve covered before.
