    This may not be a new idea for wiring, but I haven't seen it anywhere before.


    This will make one knob a master volume and one knob a volume for the neck pickup except its in series as opposed to parallel like most two volume setups. A con to this is you can only solo the bridge pickup. It could be wired backwards to give you the neck soloed.
  2. I haven't seen this often either, and it's probably because of the ability to solo only one pickup, although I guess someone might like that.
  3. The correct way to wire it is like this:

    Your diagram does not allow control over both pickups' volumes.

    Wow. Genius bro. I've never seen that wiring. It's that or the duo sonic wiring. I don't know which one I like more.

    Yeah, Walter is pretty sharp, IMO...
