7 pin strat switch wiring?

Recommended Posts

I've bought a second hand strat for a project. The blade switch has a 7 pin to connect pups and pots to it. The 8th pin is connected to casing. 

I didn't take notes before I de soldered the wires now I'm struggling to wire it up to work as a 5 way blade switch.

Anyone has a diagram how to wire a 7 pin switch to work as a 5 way strat switch?

On a 4 a side regular switch there is one connection pin that doesn’t get used, so that may have been soldered to the side? Does it look like a regular 4 a side switch?

Thanks. This works for a standard 8 pin switch. The one I have has 7 pins with an extra 8th pin which seems to be ground.

Thanks. Looks like the previous wiring I dismantled with capacitor soldered to volume and tone pot.

Would there be a much sound difference if I wired up classic strat wiring with CRL 5 way switch?
