Need help with volume knobs on P/J!

    I have a Cort Action P/J, and it has 2 volume knobs and 1 tone knob. I don't know that much about pickups, but I'd like to know which knob controls which pickup, since I have 3 pickups, but 2 knobs. Is 1 knob for the J pickup and the other knob the P pickups blended? Also, is the knob closer to the bridge controlling the J pickup?

    Here's a photo of reference:

    Going from the neck side to the bridge side, the knobs are usually P-volume, J-volume, Tone.

    So the P-pickups are taken together? I thought so... Thanks for the quick reply! ;)

    yep, that split pair is one P-pickup. should be P volume, J volume, then master tone.

    you can confirm for yourself what does what by tapping on them with a little screwdriver, then turning the knobs on or off to see which pickups stay on.
