    The configuration is:

    - Neck and bridge pickups

    - Volume (500k, Bourns brand)
    - Blend (500k M/N, Bourns brand)
    - ToneStyler Bass Ten (with hot, ground, and floating ground wires)
    - Output Jack


    Here's a diagram from another TB post which has VVT wired in series.

    I'm looking for a Volume-Blend-Tone diagram, wired in series (no switch), that incorporates the ToneStyler and optimal grounding. I don't know anything about wiring in series. :help:

    not sure, but you're gonna want an M/N blend, not a C/A blend, or the middle setting will have a lot of loss.

    Thanks for the suggestion. After reading posts on this topic, I decided to buy a 500k M/N pot.

    Well that's not a blend as I know it

    1. Ground
    2. - neck
    3 + bridge

    So move yellow over to the free lug
