ive got an H S H style with one volume and two tones and a 5way selecter. ive tried various online diagrams and blueprints and nothing has made it work. i tried the pickups in a different guitar and they work fine, so the problem lys within the wiring, who can help me?

If you're sure that the pickups work then the problem lies in either your wiring or your other components. If you got the diagram you used from a reliable source then it's likely not the wiring plans. How is your wiring skill? Did you confirm that all the correct connections were made? How about the components? If you have a multimeter then test them out.

Hi, can you explain what doesn't work? Do you get ANY sound? Do all three not work? Was the switch new?
