Can anyone give me a wiring diagram for a 60/61 stack knob?

    As a side note, you will get better results with carbon or metal film resistors of a lower value. For that matter, the best way to go about is to use trimmer pots to fine tune the resistance, in order to get the best compromise between minimal loss of output, and maximum isolation.

    I am making a 60 replica....its not even going to be back from MJT for like 2 months! but getting everything ready. Trying to get it as close to possible to original....cloth wire ect.

    I really know nothing about electronics.....but from working on cars I can do basic stuff as long as I have a wiring diagram!

    Well, those are very low quality components by modern standards, but it's the proper way to go for a period-correct replica.
