    I have no idea what that page said O.O doesn't matter since mine is the special single HB model, I'll have to research it someday but should take minimal changes for me.

    After I beat up my new one for a bit and get all that new off of it, I'll follow up on this and see if I can't route it for dual circuits. That'll be a long way off yet, have to seriously break it in first.

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
    That's what I did ... plus I put in t-bird pickups and made it a 5 string bass ...

    hit this link
    then go to page 98 of the pdf file, there you have the wiring scheme for passive MM Pickup with vol pot, hi-blend and lo-blend!

    That link is amazing! The diagram on 98 does seem like the most graceful way of using up all the holes on the control plate and keeping the bass passive. I guess the other option is to see if the pickup will split to 4-wire and then have a volume for each pickup half and a master tone.
