It's exactly as I describe.
Look at any VVT Jazz-bass wiring diagram. You will see a single tone capacitor. I changed it out from .047 or .1 to a .033 to retain more mids.
Then look at the bridge pickup. The hot lead of the pickup goes to the wiper, or center lug, of the bridge volume control on a stock jazz bass. Between that lead and that lug I soldered in a .01 capacitor to cut lows, because there really isn't anything there anyway. It really cleans up the bridge pickup tone.
Now, here's the kicker: since we're dealing with humbucking pickups, we have four leads, not two. So figuring out which lead to use as the hot lead is not as straightforward, because each company uses a different orientation of magnets and coil windings. It took a few tries at different wiring variations on the bridge pickup to get the polarity sorted out to be the same as the RIC pickup to be in phase with each other.
