Need help getting a wiring diagram.
I just got 3 pickup Les Paul (without pickups) and I am rewiring with 3 humbuckers, standard 3 way toggle switch, 3 volume pots push-pull, 1 master tone.
Standard bridge/ neck wiring for toggle switch
1st pot, neck volume, push-pull disengages the toggle switch. (pulled out)
2nd pot, middle volume, push-pull engages middle pickup. (pulled out)
3rd pot, bridge pickup volume, push-pull coil taps middle pickup. (pulled out),
4th pot, master tone
Middle pickup, Bill Lawrence L-500 lead from 1980 (4 wire)
Bridge and neck pick P-Rails with Triple Shot. [FONT=&quot][/FONT]
Thank you in advance for your help.

This is a basic setup for 3 pickups, 3 individual volumes, 1 master tone.

I did find your explanation a bit ambiguous though. First, you mention having the middle pickup on a push/pull to engage it, does this mean it is unaffected by the toggle switch? If so, why would you need to disengage the toggle switch, leaving it in the middle position and engaging the middle pickup would achieve the same thing.

To Coil Split the middle pickup isn't hard, the two central wires that usually are just attached together to connect the coils will go to the center lug of your push pull, and the top lug goes to ground.

^ I think having the middle pickup on by itself is what is desired.
