Hello Everyone,
I found this Cardinal In a pawn shop
and could use some help Putting it back to its original state
at some point in its lifetime someone removed the two micro switches for the coil tapping
and drove/and glued two acoustic bridge pins in the holes...........why/or who in the world would do such a thing?
i would like to know if any one has this model guitar?could they please send me some pictures of the wiring inside the control cavity,and also pictures of the micro toggle switches
so i can rewire her back to all her glory?
Please save my C-A-R-D-I-N-A-L


Here is a link to the Pictures

Yup, even in Canada!
Welcome to the forums.
Here's a bit of general information on your Cardinal until someone with more knowledge than I comes along with some schematics, etc.
http://www.matsumoku.org/models/ariaproii/cs/cs-400.html

Shouldn't be a problem restoring her, she's a beauty! Well done!

Here;s a page with some schematics and pics: http://www.matsumoku.org/models/ariapro ... grams.html

You can also look at almost any schematic on the web for phase and coil split with mini switches.

Looks like your CS is in great shape otherwise.

Hey Guys,
Thanks for the help on this
Now that i have found the wiring diagram
My only other question is directed to the mini toggle switches
are they - On/On "2 position switches"
On/On/On "3 Position Switches"
On/Off/On "3 Position Switches"

Any help would be Greatly Appreciated

:loon:
