Brian May Red Special Guitar Wiring with 3 On-On-On Toggle Switch

I made a Brian May Red Special Guitar Wiring on a Strat using Burns pick up (probably fake but I don’t care they sound amazing)  & a PTB Tone Control plus solo switch.

The trick on this one is I was able to make this quite advanced wiring using only 3 toggle switches instead of six, like on Brian May guitar.

I don’t remember were I find the wiring plan. It was on a forum. I also included a PTB tone control wiring from Joe Gore on the premier guitar website.

It’s not really interesting on this one. I installed it on another guitar and it gives better results. Probably due to the pickup’s frequency.

Anyway, if you want the wiring plans, check out the link bellow and go on my other bog where I’m talking about guitar electronic only.
