I am doing my first wiring - Tiger style. I have everything I need and now need to assemble it. I have created a couple images. One of just the wiring with pickups and one for everything else. I have coded every possible connection (c1, c2, c3, ect.) if you have any corrections to make. I based this off the Wald-electronics Tiger schematic. So, please let me know if this is right - or wrong.

Pickup only wiring: ... gsmall.jpg

All other wiring: ... llwid.jpg/

Thanks everyone! Hoping to correct any mistakes before I make them!

your complete layout is nothing more then a redrawn, with pictures, layout of the tiger schem of mine you referenced. all you need to do is start soldering away.

good luck!

double check the two terminals on the lower 250k half of the dual pot. I think you have the wrong pair. This would make the tone control work in reverse. Yes/no?

should be 30c and 31c and NOT 32c, just like the other two tone pots.

Waldo - yes, as I mentioned - it's just a reworking of yours. I had a hard time seeing some details in your image and that's why I redid it a bit more expanded. Thank you for the correction on my layout - I would have screwed it up!!

Waldo, the only complaint I would have on yours is that the 5way connections are not that clear. That's really the only reason I spent the time doing this. And it gave me a better understanding of this before I started doing this little project.

Since the layout is supposed to be the underside view, I would recommend showing the underside of the pickups as well. It makes it very clear how the humbuckers are oriented.

Great work all.
