    I've got an old jazz-style bass and want to try some different ways to wire it up sticking with the two pickups (Bartollini quads) and three pots. Any ideas?

    If you don’t mind putting a switch in place of the first pot, I like the idea of using a rotary 4-way switch in the first spot as a pickup selector along with master volume and tone in the remaining spots. You could, for example, wire the positions to be parallel, series, neck solo and bridge solo. That lets you quickly access four very different tones.
