    I'm throwing some Dimarzio Ultrajazzes in my 75RI Jazz and need a diagram for Volume/Blend/Tone...
    I've always disliked the 2 volume knobs on these basses, so while I'm in there I wanna change it up.

    Also, what pots will I need for this here job?

    Thanks

    I've done this to a few basses I've owned & one with the same set of DiMazrio's you'll be using & I've used 500K pots.
     
  5. Sorry to hijack the thread, but davidmwilson, your PM box is full.

    these guys are right on, just remember that the blend pot is a dual 500k, not concentric. Then you'll need standard passive pots for volume and tone. The blend will be first followed by the volume and then tone in the signal chain. Hope this helps.
