Hi
I have a Aria Pro II Rs-750 Revsound guitar for about a month and am not quite familiar with the electronics; I'm having problems with the selector switches.
Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this particular guitar?
Also, what does the middle pickup do? I believe it's a slave, but do not actually understand it's role.
Also, the rotator pickup selector takes a long travel between positions 2 and 3; is it repairable?
Regards
Carlos

Ok; I have read some messages in the forum and I think I now understand how the pickups and switches work.
But I could not find any info on the pickup wiring schematics. Can anyone help? also with the pickup switch malfunction that I've reported?
Cheers
Carlos

I don't have one so I can't be sure but....

According to the specs, the center pickup is a "slave". Usually this means that it is only there to provide for a reverse wound coil so the other pups are humbucking while keeping a single coil sound. If that is the case, then the center one is probably always on. That is easy to check. If no lead runs from the center pup, then it is always on. So the pup selector would be a simple three way, neck, both, bridge. It is possible the center pup is cut off when in the both setting. I am not sure how they would wire that. Pictures of what you have would be a big help.
