    I have that on my favorite P/J bass. Just wire them as if they were totally independent. 1 pup with 1 vol. and 1 tone. The only common connection will be your ground wire and the + to the output jack.

    If i remember correctly when i had this set up a few years ago i had 4 250k pots and 0.47 capacitors...

    Fender is using 250k and 500k pots 0.3 and 0.5 capacitors for there '62 jazz bass

    which one do you think is better?

    Maybe you should experiment with .022 -.080 and see where the treble cut suits your ear, seeing as there are 2 seperate pick-up positions, you may find different caps fitting your ear for each position? just an idea, seeing as caps are quick on and offs and inexpensive.

    Rickenbacker site has vtvt diagrams also, don't know whether it's the same as or different from what's already been referred to.
