Description: 

The Yamaha Weddington Custom is a single-cut dual humbucker guitar like a Les Paul developed by YGD (Yamaha Guitar Development) located in North Hollywood under Rich Lasner. The Weddington series was named after the street where YGD was located. The Yamaha Weddington Custom featured a sculpted neck heel, DiMarzio made humbuckers (DHB2 and DHB3) and a solid brass bridge with locking saddles. 

The 5-way switch configuration of the Weddington Custom is as follows:

  1. Coils 1+2 in series (normal bridge humbucker)
  2. Coils 1+2 in parallel (single-coil neck voicing)
  3. Coils 1+2 in series + 3+4 in series (normal middle-position of a Les Paul, both humbuckers run in parallel)
  4. Coils 2+3 in series (the inner coils from each humbucker) +4 (the back coil in the bridge humbucker) brought in paralled with the rear tone control.
  5. Coils 3+4 in series (normal bridge humbucker)
