    Hi, I know there are plenty of PJ wiring diagrams about, but I'd like to know how these Squier PJs are wired. Unusually, there are three wires coming from the Jack output, hot, and they are each wired to one lug on each pot, (white Vol 1, yellow Vol 2, red Tone), I haven't ever seen this on a PJ diagram before. If anyones got a diagram with this wiring or could shed some light, that would be much appreciated.

    BTW I've put a Fender vintage noiseless in the bridge and a 2016 American standard P pickup. Sounds and plays excellent.

    Probably cheaper to make, maybe more suited to pre-assembly. Might be more prone to noise given the additional wire on the hot leg, but functionally the same as any other VVT setup...

    Thanks. Excuse me while I google electronics for dummies:)

    I can sort of follow your diagram but I definitely need to do some homework.
  4. Electrically it's the same as going from Vol1 > Vol2 > Treble cut (tones) pot > output jack
