    Been wiring for years but can't figure this out. The pots are throwing me off. I've been using this diagram to wire a DPDT On-On-On switch as series/bridge/parallel. The middle setting is bridge only. Now I want wire the same switch as series/neck/parallel. The middle setting will be neck only. I want to use the neck pot to control the series and neck volume. what wires do I have to move around?

  2. After taking a look at that, it would appear you've got a switch like this:


    So, all you need to do is swap the top two set of terminals from left to right.

    This is assuming that UP is the Series position...

    I finally got around to wiring it and it worked. Your solution was the first thing that popped in my head but I overthought it and made it more complicated. This is for a PJ Foley-style lead bass with a FET buffer. Thanks!
