Hey everybody, I am DIYing something different, and very unusual, simply because I wanted to try it and there is nothing like it in any store that I have run across. It involves a very guitar-like control system unlike what most basses use. I have three passive pickups (N/M/B). I have a three-way Les Paul style switch that goes N, N+B, B (like a typical two-pickup guitar). That then went into a volume and tone for those two pickups. Then for the M, I decided to have a separate volume pot (in parallel with the other circuit, of course). I thought this would allow me to make a selection of N/B, and then fade in M as I pleased. There was a problem. Turning the M volume down to 0 didn't get rid of all of the sound from M - there still was a little bit left in the signal, verified by tapping on the magnets with a metal screwdriver. Apparently Les Pauls suffer from this problem when in the middle position, because of the nature of passive components - turning down the volume for one doesn't completely remove it from the signal. I decided to put in a switch - I wouldn't ever need to try fading M in, and it would completely remove the pickup from the signal. Even though I was using two separate switches, I still was just making and breaking connections, right? Wrong - turning that switch off does exactly the same thing as the pot did on 0. So what am I missing? How can I set it up so that the middle pickup is completely off when I turn it off? I really hate getting the sound of multiple pickups, even slightly, when I am aiming for the pure sound of either N or B. Thanks!
