    I've got a 2000's era CIJ Fender Jaguar bass. I like it but one thing that irks me is not having separate volume controls for each pickup, only an on/off switch. I was just thinking the other day, what if I replaced the volume and tone pots with the 60s stacked jazz bass pots/knobs so I had control over each pickup volume? Would this be possible, and if so, how complicated? I have attached the wiring diagram and an image of the bass below for reference. Thanks in advance! jaguar_wiring.

  2. It should work, but you would have to eliminate, or at least relocate where the pickup switches lie in the chain. I remember the first time I checked out one of these in 2006 I thought the same thing. I recently bought one and have had no issue with this concern.
