How do I wire a Volume-Volume-Tone into a Volume-Pan-Tone?

    I have an Ibanez GSR 200 upgraded with EMG P-J's. I want to get rid of the current Volume-Volume-Tone setup and I want to turn it into a Volume-Pan-Tone setup. I know I need to get a pan pot, but can I use one of the other volume pots for the master Volume pot as well as keeping the same Tone pot? Also, what values should I use (I have EMG's and the Volume pots are 25K, so does that mean I should use a 25K pan pot?)

    I'm mildly electronically retarded at the moment (its been a year since my Physics class... ironic I'm going to major in Electrical Engineering and know nothing about it)

    Thanks
    Dave

    Cthis mod be done with passive pickups, or is it strictly for actives?

    Shucks no :)...active, passive - it don't matter.

    `Course you wouldn't wanna' put a 25KΩ blend pot in a
    passive setup. The rule of thumb for passive pups is 250KΩ
    pots for single coils (most Jazz pups, fer instance), and
    500KΩ pots for humbuckers.

    Stew-Mac's got a 500KΩ blend pot, WD's got a 250KΩ one.


    Ω-k? :D

    That doesn't seem like it'd be too hard or expensive to do. Now I just have to find a 25ohm blend pot somewhere nearby so that I don't have to pay $8 to ship a $10 part:rolleyes:

    Thanks for the hookup
