    Hi Everyone!

    I'm trying to wire a P/J bass with the following configuration, does anyone know if this is possible/easy?

    P neck pickup and j bridge pickup wired to one volume and push pull tone, when tone not pulled, both pickups wired in parallel, when pulled, just P pickup (With tone and volume engaged).

    It seems like it would be relatively simple, I just don't know where I would put the hot for the bridge pickup or the neck pickup. Thoughts?

    Thanks again,

    The + wire for the P pickup will go to the volume pot like normal.
    The + wire for the bridge pickup will go to the push/pull to connect or disconnect from the same spot that the P pickup is connected to the volume pot.

    This is not weird wiring at all, but to the point. It's the only two settings I use on a P/J.
