    OK, first, here is a link to the wiring diagram instructions for the MMTW.

    http://www.emgpickups.com/content/wiringdiagrams/MMTW_0230-0146A.pdf

    You'll want to use diagram 4, which uses the MMTW push-pull pot as the master volume. I think this is the best option. This allows the pickup to go to the pot, then to a pan pot (the EMG ABCX)/3-way switch which allows you to blend in the P. The Pot or switch will then get sent back to the MMTW which is now a the master volume. Then you go from the volume pot to either a tone control or active preamp and then finally to the output jack.

    Hope this helps.

    Sorry it's so crude, but this is assuming you're getting the ABCX (Blend knob). You can use a 3-way switch like a Telecaster switch, EMG makes one for solderless connections. In that case, just replace the ABCX on the diagram with the switch and send the battery leads from the pickups directly to the bus. Hope this helps.
