    OK, I want the simplest possible knob config. while still having 2 pups. Can I use one of the existing vol. knobs and just wire both pups to it on the same lug? Would that sound the same as having both pups on full? Does the ground wire to the bridge just go from the pot casing? Thanks!

    yup, just wire both hot leads to the usual lug on the one vol pot. ground wire would be wired as usual

    Thanks! My weekend project is installing a Roland GK pup in my SX 5 string P. I'm glad this bass is cheap because I've hacked the body in a few places I shouldn't have, but I'm pretty sure it's going to work out great!
