    Hi - i searched..but nothing and since I'm 'stealing' someone's wifi from the sidewalk I thought I'd just ask.


    I have a 60's reissue Jazz with the traditional Volume/Volume/Tone with Bartolini's

    I'd like Volume/Blend/Stach (bass and treble)

    can anyone point me to a diagram?

    FWIW:

    Most Bart NTBT's come in that config. What you need to be aware of is the pots will not likely be the large Fender diameter (CTS) pots so you'll have to throw a spacer into the holes and the stems will probably be much taller so there will be a blatant gap from the bottom of the knob to face of the bass unless you shim the pot also. The knobs probably won't fit either unless they have a set screw. Even then you may need to wrap the stems with whatever or the knobs may end up canted.

    It would be more compatible to throw a CTS blend pot in the passive system, or pick up a Fender two band preamp.
