DF824 Pickup Configuration
« on: January 16, 2016, 09:32:09 PM »
So I'm still not exactly positive what pickups are selected for each given position and then adding the coil tap push/pull pot kinda makes it more confusing.

What I gather so far is
Position 1(Switch tip toward bottom of guitar) is humbucker
            2 I'm not sure if its the mid single with the top coil of the HB or its the mid and HB.
            3 Mid single
            4 Mid single and neck single
            5 neck single

With the coil tap pulled, it seems like it goes
            1 bottom coil of hb
            2 sounds like the bottom again, but it could be the top coil of the HB
            3 mid single
            4 mid single and neck single?
            5 neck single

Just wondered if anyone could help me clear that up.

I have a DF724, assuming it's the same then the config is:

1 - HB (inner coil i.e. closest to middle pick up when tapped).
2 - HB/middle (inner coil i.e. closest to middle pick up when tapped).
3 - middle
4 - middle/neck
5 - neck

Plug it in and check by touching with a paperclip or similar and you can audibly tell which coils are active.

Makes sense. I tried tapping the pickups and even using a tv remote to try to figure out which pups were active, but it was still difficult to tell for sure.
