Hey yall. So I'm rewiring my bass AGIAN and this time, I'm thinking of putting in another tone control so that each pickup has it's own control (a la Marcus Miller style). I've written up some schematics, would someone be so kind and check my work? Here's the scoop:
- There is a series/parallel switch
- 2 volumes/2 tones for each pickup
- Each tone control will be a push/pull selecting one of 2 caps. I'm assuming these work like DPDT, so that the lug on the pot needs to be wired to the actual switch that the push/pull controls.
The only part that I may have messed up is what to do with each tone control. On a stock J, the hot comes from the bridge pot into the middle lug of the tone pot, then goes to the jack. Im ASSUMING that each tone pot gets wired to the hot lug on the jack, meaning that there will be a wire from each tone pot going to the jack.
While I've got you here, is there any perceivable difference between using a 250k vs 500k for the tone pots? The 2 caps i'll be using are 0.047µF and 0.10 µF
Heres the schematic I drew: http://i46.tinypic.com/aqq8k.jpg
I REALLY appreciate any help I can get on this. Thank you!
