    Just at a quick glance it looks like you've reversed the push pull compared to the diagram I posted. It's not an issue, you just need to decide whether you want the pot up or down for the coil split.

    Also your volume pot is missing a ground on the 3rd connector.

    In regards to the single Earth point that should be fine as far as I'm aware.

    Ah cool, cheers. I think I've fixed both those now - exactly why I need an extra set of eyes.

    I'd prefer for them to be split when the pot is pulled out and normal when the pot is in, got turned around looking at the diagram.

    How's this looking?

    And here's how I'd do the earth block... I don't think it introduces any shorts?

    The layout looks good now, splitting both pups when the push/pull is up.

    One thing you may want to do before grabbing the soldering iron, particularly with unfamiliar pickups, is to check youíll be splitting to a hum cancelling pair. Itís easy if you have clips leads. Sit the two pups side by side, clip the two black wires together and clip them onto the Ďhotí of a jack, clip the two red/white pairs together and clip them to the jackís ground, plug in a lead and connect an amp. If itís noisy/hummy then on one pup swap the red/white to the hot clip lead and put the green/bare on the ground lead and test again.

    If itís hum-free with the second config then you will need to change how one side of your push/pull is wired. For one pickup, say the neck, instead of having your purple ground connect connect across to its lug you need to have the black Ďhotí connect there before going on to connect to the toggle switch. Thatíll split it to the other coil.
    Scott.

    OK great tip Scott thanks for that and for checking that the above will work. Little ways off putting it together so I'll definitely run through that check first.

    Cheers for your help as well Woltz.

    You've got a redundant ground wire. There's one from the back of the volume pot to the back of the tone pot that's not needed as you've already got ground connections shown from both pots to the bar.

    I'd also consider using a push/push pot rather than a push/pull pot as they are always easier to use. Wiring is the same, just a different mechanism within the pot.

    Oh yeah, good pickup on the redundant wire. The push pull is what I happen to have on hand, so thatís what Iím using here.

    ....watching poly dry. Getting very close, still some pores and slight imperfections. Maybe a couple more coats.

    Will probably grain fill next time, I've avoided doing that to this point, but it'd surely speed things up.

    It's driving me crazy. I'm pretty much ready to assemble, but want to get this as nice as possible, which means a lot of waiting around for it to cure before recoating. It'll be worth it I think, but I'm pretty keen to see if it comes together as a decent playing guitar as well.
