    I am putting together a Strat with:

    - 2 Gibson mini-humbuckers
    - 3 way switch
    - one volume control
    - two tone controls

    I haven't been able to locate a wiring diagram for this specific setup. Unfortunately I'm a novice when it comes to wiring so I have trouble figuring this stuff out on my own. Any help would be appreciated!!

    So I have found these two diagrams...The wiring differences on the switch confuse me. The Seymour Duncan one looks more like how I wired my tele, but I'm confused about the wire passing through the tone pot before it gets to the switch. Which one looks more "correct" to the wiring experts out there?

    You might want to try a bass and treble setup.

    google passive treble and bass. You will like it.

    Thanks for the tip. I am going to try this. I found the diagram below that seems to explain it pretty well. My only question comes from the connection that goes from the selector switch to the treble pot. What does this look like on a tele blade switch? Do I patch the 4 switch prongs together like on a normal tele and then send that chain of wires to the treble pot?

    wiring from pickups to switch is stock. Then instead of wiring straight to volume, go to tone pots then volume as shown in that diagram. I use .002 or .003uF bass cap.
