Hello guys, I'm trying to do a coil-split (Jb jr. pickup bridge) using the S1 pot and cant get any info on how to simply do it online. I have little experience DIY'ng things on my guitar and I would appreciate a lot if you can help with the wiring schematics to split 1 "humbacker" of the jb jr. only in layman's term. Attached a picture if this helps. Thanks guys!

Standard Duncan humbucker wiring uses the green and bare for the negative, black for the hot, and the red and white are the center taps.
So on the S1, you could connect "B" to the ground with the pickup negative leads, and connect the red and white wires together to terminal "A" on the S1.
This will ground the center tap when you press the S1 and split the coils.

Thanks Rich! I'll give it a go.
