    Does anyone have a diagram for standard wiring for a SSS Strat to a superswitch? I can look at the superswitch schematic till I’m blue in the face, it would help if I had a wiring diagram.

    Confused - why would you wire a Standard SSS Strat and a super switch? Just use a regular 5-way......or are you trying to do other things than normal vintage Strat wiring?

    You don’t need the super switch for a Norman Strat. But, if it’s all you got, you use half of it.

    The only thing a super switch gets you over a standard 5 way is the ability to assign either tone control to any of the 5 positions.

    You can have no tone control for the 2 and 4 positions for instance.

    At most, you will use only 2 of the 4 poles of the switch.

    1 for pickup hot leads
    1 for tone control assignments
