Thought this would be very user friendly, so I decided to make a one stop for links to other sites with schematic and wiring info; as I noticed alot of these request from newer builders in particular keep coming up.  Feel free to add on..............it will be usefull to stop here at Warmoth to find the info that ya need, rather than searching the net everytime you build. :icon_smile:

I found that Seymour Duncan one a while ago.  That one is by far the best with any type of wiring combination you can imagine.

If anyone can sticky this, I'll do a semi-glossary... Gregg? Wylee?

I'd add this one about finding the color codes for an unknown pickup:
http://www.projectguitar.com/tut/pickupwiring.htm
Project Guitar is listed overall, but this is a good theory teacher. I'd also add this capacitor value translator:
http://www.justradios.com/uFnFpF.html

And you can't do without Frank Ford:
http://www.frets.com/FRETSPages/pagelist.html

Here are the links that I've found most useful over time:

Lindy Fralin
http://www.fralinpickups.com/wiring.asp

ACME Guitar Works
http://www.acmeguitarworks.com/Wiring_W8.cfm

A couple others from GuitarElectronics.com
http://www.guitarelectronics.com/category/.wiringresources
http://www.guitarelectronics.com/category/wiringresources.1_pickup_diagrams/
http://www.guitarelectronics.com/category/wiringresources.2_pickup_diagrams/
http://www.guitarelectronics.com/category/wiringresources.3_pickup_diagrams/

I've also looked over the Seymour Duncan site extensively, but won't post those again here since they're already in the thread.

Here is a site with hundreds of diagrams. There are diagrams for guitar wiring, amp, special circuits, effects.. I have still not been through everything but it is a great resource. It can be a bit strange to navigate sometimes. There is other related information which can be very useful as well.  Happy wiring!

Here's a great thread from the S.D. forums of a project using the P-Rails, Triple Shot, and some other stuff to provide a host of switching options.

Can't believe nobody's posted http://schematicheaven.com/ yet.  They have schematics and layouts for tons of older amps.

Probably because it's a guitar wiring links thread  :icon_jokercolor:

I've been on that site a ton lately, though. Got a lot of amps printed out.

I would have to add www.guitarhotrod.com, the whole point of the website is to help beginners with wiring diagrams and soldering tips.
