    Not long ago I picked up an L100 and when I pulled the covers off, I found that the plastic insulation on the wiring in spots had cracked and crumbled off. So I gutted that wiring and am in the process replacing it all with vintage shielded wiring(I have loads of it) but now I have a problem with the box switch: I neglected to take a picture of the switch before removing the old wiring and now I'm unsure which of the three posts on the side of the switch is used for the bridge pup and which is used by the neck pup. There are Tons of images out there for the Switchcraft style of switch but I can't seem to find one for the box switch: anyone have a good clear photo showing how the box switch is wired up?
    Thanks all.

    Try it one way, if it's wrong reverse it.

    White = neck, yellow = bridge

    I generally toss box switches, but since GIR is under warranty I'm leaving it alone for now.
