Idol WI STD wiring diagram?
« on: July 16, 2011, 01:50:14 PM »
Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum. But some of you may know me from the Harmony Central or Mark Wein forums.

I recently picked up a MIC Idol WI STD from Amazon. I couldn't pass it up at the price. And I'm glad I didn't. It really is a decent guitar. I'd compare it to a good Epi LP.

I'm trying to find a wiring diagram for this. It has Duncan USM pickups in it that sound decent enough. But I was thinking of replacing them with a set of Rockfields that I have. But the wiring diagram is different than anything I've ever seen. It's not standard LP wiring. Nor is it a VCC diagram. It appears to be a hybrid of sorts with the split wires attached to the center lug of the tone controls and a single cap for all of it.

Here are some pics:

It uses a standard 3 position box switch. Does anyone know where I can find a wiring diagram for this? If not, I'll end up rewiring with standard LP wiring.
