 Post subject: x250 wiring?
PostPosted: Fri May 27, 2005 2:49 am 
I recently bought an X250 that has been unfortunately "modified" over the years. One of the mini-toggles was replaced (the one closest to the neck), and I'm not convinced it was wired correctly. Also, there's a stub of ground wire coming off of my #2 (counting from the neck) pot that looks like it should go somewhere. Does anyone have, or know a source for, a schematic?

TIA

Does your Electra x250 have an EQ circuit besides being a
dual humbucker system?

One of the real experts may know more. Check back later.

Yep, it does. The X150 schematic posted a few topics down is somewhat similar, but mine has 4 pots, and the aforementioned active EQ. Two of the switches have been replaced in a pretty amateur-ish fashion, so i bought 3 new (2 DPDT on-on, 1 4PDT on-on) switches from DigiKey. I'd like to be certain it's wired correctly while I've got it torn apart. Just from looking at it, it doesn't seem the phase switch is right - it doesn't have the typical 'crossover' jumper. I'm working on diagramming it out, but it's slow going.

If anyone out there has an X250 w/EQ, PM me, I could sure use your assistance.

Thanks!
