So on my j style, I currently have series/parallel-volume-volume, but I've been thinking of taking the plunge and adding in a tone pot. To do this, I might take out the volumes in favor of a blend knob. My question is, with the V-V-S1 wiring, I basically have a master volume and a dead pot in series mode, if I did that with a blend knob, what happens in series mode? For instance, if I understand the theory properly, I only have one master volume in series mode because in series only one hot lead goes to the output, therefore only that pot has an active signal (eg, if the neck hot and bridge ground are connected in series mode, then the bridge volume acts as the master because the neck hot is already grounded, yes?). So with the blend knob, if I understand correctly, turning the knob to the right grounds out one of the hot leads, eg, the bridge, and turning to the left grounds out the other, eg, neck lead. So then when I switch to series (connecting the neck hot to the bridge ground), if I'm favoring the neck pup through the blend knob then I'll experience a volume drop right? Am I getting this right? Is there something I'm missing? Anybody done this that could offer some input?
