    Hello brothers

    A friend of mine is interested in the wiring schematic of the original Santana model
    with the 2 mini switches, so is it possible to find a diagram?
    Any help is very appreciated, thx.
    Nabs.

    You know I don’t have this. :( :D

    Were these rumored to have something funky in the circuit?

    The only funky thing I know of is the all-pickups-off setting on the switches. Still scares me from time to time.

    I don't have the schematic, but maybe these will help.

    I loved that switching on the one that I played! It gives you the opportunity to do the Ace Frehley “Ah-ah-ah” thing.

    I wonder what the value of that trimmer is? Had no idea that was in there, but I will say...I thought of it first!

    Nevermind...just read Shawn’s attachment and all was revealed.

    I thought the same thing when I opened her up. Turns out it takes the tone pot from 250k to 370k.
