Single volume jazz bass wiring

    Hey guys. Two questions. First, does anyone have schematics or links to jazz bass wiring with one volume, one tone, and a three way switch (or possibly options for series operation as well?)
    Secondly, if I use a switch instead of dual volume pots will the pickup load change my tone and will I still have him cancelling abilities when both pickups are selected together? Thanks!

    You are increasing the input impedance on the pickups by removing a pot. This gives a touch more output and treble. You can simulate the original load with a resistor.

    Humcancellation is unchanged.
