Tiger Wiring

Tiger Wiring

Postby mgbills » Fri Jul 29, 2011 4:17 pm

Good Afternoon Folks,

I'm in the process of wiring two Strat's ...Tiger style. In looking at Waldo's diagram, it appears that the pickup leads for each pickup & their respective tone caps all get soldered to the same switch post? Am I seeing things? Should they be wired in the standard 6 positions?

Please help. It's a sunny Friday, and instead of lounging about drinking Sierra Summerfest, I'm in my show soldering like a MadMan!

Thanks to All.

M

Thanks. That is if you are confirming that all leads go to one side of the switch. Thanks, also if you are confirming that I"m seeing things...although those things may mean different things. :lol:

Now...I see in retrospect that you have confirmed that I'm seeing things. So the wiring question stands. Sorry for creating confusion.

I'm going to be doing the "Tiger" wiring (3 super 2's, buffer, OBEL, 5 way selector switch) in a couple of weeks. If you don't have it done by then, we could get together here or if your not too far away, in person. Where are you located?
Waldo's diagram is correct and I thank him for that. It is just that there is a lot going on there and you really have to look carefully and realy study it. Is this the diagram your looking at? http://www.wald-electronics.com/tiger.html If so, make it bigger and you can easily see where the wires go on the selector switch. Also, here is a good diagram that just shows and explains the OBEL. http://guitarwiring.blogspot.com/2011/0 ... ntrol.html :smile: :smile: :smile:

Look on page two in the Guitar Building and Mods section for a thread something like "Help- Tiger wiring with images.." These images are a big help.

Pickup only wiring:

Hey TI4-1009, do you know what that switch is next to the selector switch? :smile: :smile: :smile:

As far as I know there are only the three mini switches- two coil cuts and the one OBEL on/bypass.

That's what I thought too, but there is another switch in that diagram. :smile: :smile: :smile:

The four switches are all shown in the first image- the pickup selector top left, and the three mini-switches down the left side. Where are you seeing another switch?

On the second link above the pots next to the selector switch......could it be the volume pot? just doesn't look like the other pots. I'm not really sure. If you can let me know, Id really appreciate it. :smile: :smile: :smile:

Top pot is the master volume, middle pot is tone for middle pickup, lower pot is ganged 250/500 tone pot for neck single coil and bridge humbucker.

Got it! That is what I thought. What threw me off was that the master volumn is illustrated differently than the other two pots.
Thanks T14-1009! :smile: :smile: :smile:

I was looking there for a Rosebud wiring diagram (on that site) for some comparisons and didn't find one. Do you know if there is one there?

Not sure if there's a diagram on there, but as far as I understand, the difference between Rosebud's and Tiger's wiring is that in Tiger, the volume and tone pots are post-effects, and in Rosebud the tone controls are pre-effects and the volume is post-effects.
