    * Active mode - includes master volume, pickup blend, plus stacked concentric boost & cut control for bass & treble frequencies, and stacked concentric control for midrange frequency cut/boost & sweep.

    Any idea on the specs? Frequency centers, cut/boost dB, etc? I did a quick Google, but didn't find anything...

    Can you post the center-to-center spacing of the control shafts, please?

    The module is comprised of two small circuit boards, each one containing two pots - one for the master volume + blend, the other for the stacked bass/treble + stacked midrange/sweep.

    On each board, the spacing of the control shafts is about 1 5/8 inches.
