Hello! I recently purchased a Legator 8 string guitar and decided to upgrade the pickups to the Fishman Fluence Tosin Abasi Sig. set. I got the set, opened up my guitar, and got to work.
The wiring kit does not include a switch, and you are (I assume) supposed to use the switch already inside of the guitar. The switch inside was a 3 way Fender Strat style switch with 8 connectors on it. Sadly, none of the 3 diagrams included with the Fluences used a switch with 8 connectors, and so I decided to do a bit of research to figure out how to make it work.
I ended up using the 3rd diagram included with the Fluences (https://www.fishman.com/wp-content/uplo ... ce-WEB.pdf), but using the switch wiring from the diagram included with the Fishman Fluence Modern 8 set (https://docs.google.com/viewerng/viewer ... iagram.pdf).
It sorta worked, and sorta didn't.
I can select the neck pickup OR the bridge pickup, but I can only do this while the switch is in between one of the 3 selections (between top and middle for neck, between bottom and middle for bridge).
I feel like I am close to making this work, but my lack of electronics knowledge has put me at a standstill.
Could any of you guys give me advice on where to find information, or on how I should wire up the switch I currently have? I also would like to note that I have an extra 5-way Fender Style switch if that would be better for my use case/solving my problem.
Need to know how to setup your guitar? How do you lower your action? How do you get rid of the Milli Vanilli stickers? Look here first.
