Electric guitar manufacturing is a multi-billion dollar industry with major manufacturers established worldwide. From the introduction of the first mass-produced electric guitar in 1950, guitarists have been mesmerized with advances in technology and the wide array of after- market parts commercially available for guitar upgrades. Specialty products such as Bourns® Model PDB183-GTR21 Guitar Potentiometer with Push-Pull Switch allow the guitarist multiple functions utilizing a single control such as split-coil switching for humbucking (double-pole) pickups or stacked single-coil pickups, active electronics activation, and pickup phase switching. This application note addresses utilization of the PDB183-GTR21 to enable split-coil pickup switching in electric guitar humbucking pickups.

Bourns® Model PDB183-GTR21 Guitar Potentiometer with Push-Pull Switch is designed to allow the guitarist switching capability and volume or tone controls with a single 18 mm package size potentiometer. The potentiometer is designed with a single shaft that is used to activate the Double-Pole, Double-Throw (DPDT) switch and to adjust the potentiometer. The DPDT switch can be wired for various switch functions.
