Wiring diagram for 87-88 Cosair Deluxe

Post by madmarcus1960 on Thu Oct 22, 2009 10:27 am

Gents, I scored another FleBay Westie, a jet black Corsair Deluxe from either 87 based on the serial or 88 based on USA catalogs. It has the EMG style pups and a 3 way DPTT switch for the HB's and a SPST switch for the single. It also has the mid shape tone setup.
Anyone have some info on what the 3 switches do. I assuming HB-OFF-Coil Cut for the HB's and on off for the single.

Thanks,
Marc

THE COLLECTION:
1987 XA1330 Metallic Sea Green(lots of paint chips on the edged and stress cracks around the pickups and trem)
1986 X275 CS Pantera (small scratches and shallow dents, but in very god overall shape)
1987 XA1630 Genesis II (in rough shape and in pieces, Stripped paint down to wood, yes past the plastic sealer, big stress crack for the edge of the body through the control cavity. The plan is the secure the crack and refinish.)
and new to the family:
1987-88 Corsair Deluxe jet black and in 8.5 shape.

Hi MadMarcus,

Cant help with the Corsair, but having recently stripped and rebuilt my Genesis II 1630, I might be able to offer some advice should you need it.

All the best

Steve

mechanically and electrically I'm all set. refinishing isn't something I done before. I need to secure the crack before I go any further. this will get done once I finish stripping down the top. the sides and back are done already.
any advice on a cheap and dirty paint job. epoxy paint for auto's maybe?

Middle pot is classic tone pot. Bottom one is mid sweep, kind of like the Q on a Wah, but not a extreme. It is a very interactive setup.
Thanks

One other thing is the the neck on the Corsair seems thinner than the Pantera or Spectrum III, especially at the 1st fret.
Any info on whether this is the norm or if it is unusual.

Thanks
