    Weekend fun!

    I want to mod my P-Bass to have this:

    Pups
    1 P-Bass - Neck
    1 Jazz - Bridge

    Knobs
    1 Master Volume, 1 Balance, 1 Tone

    I have the pups and (3) 250k Pots. Do I need anything else to make this work? Does anyone have a schematic for this setup?
    Thanks,
    John

    Well, I found a schematic at GuitarElectronics.com and noticed that the blend pot is a stacked pot i believe. Has 6 prongs. Can I get these at Radio Shack?

    No, Radio Shack won't have what you need.

    A good balance pot will have a center detent so you know when you're in the middle.

    A Fender dealer could probably order you one, or you can find one on line at allparts.com or similar.
