hello,<br>&nbsp;&nbsp; im in desperate search for the wiring schematics of the rs530. i just got one with a bad short and need to rewire, but the diagrams listed on the site don't go back far enough. does anyone have any ideas or know where i can find a generic schematic for a 2 humbucker, 3 pot (two of which are also push button, and a 3 position toggle switch? any help would be much appriciated. thank you.<br>

<P><EM><FONT color=#000099>You really do not need a wiring diagram, it should be pretty simple.</FONT></EM></P>
<P><EM><FONT color=#000099>The RS530 had 2&nbsp;push-push volume controls that split each pickup, one standard tone control and a standard 3-way toggle.&nbsp; Aside from the push-push pots, this is the same setup as the current diagram for the GSZ120.</FONT></EM></P>
<P><EM><FONT color=#000099>If you look at that diagram for the GSZ120, each pickup has a wire that doesn't go anywhere.&nbsp; For your configuration, this wire would go to the push-push pots of each pickup to ground out one of the coils.&nbsp; Keep in mind that the colors may be different.</FONT></EM></P>
<P><EM><FONT color=#000099>If you need to replace one or both of the push-push pots, sadly I don't think anyone makes them any more but you can use push-pull pots in there place and you would wire them the exact same way.</FONT></EM></P>
<P><EM><FONT color=#000099>NOTE: Personally, I really liked the push-push pots better than push pull pots.&nbsp; But that's just me.</FONT></EM></P>
