    If this has already been said, feel free to remove this thread. I didn't know what to search.

    Basically, I want to change my jazz bass pot layout. I have the standard V-V-T at the minute, but I was wondering if there was a way to wire it as Overall Volume-Blend-Tone, (blend meaning that when the knob is at 12 o'clock both pickups are on full, and moving it either way solos the corresponding pickup).

    Cheers
     
  2. Sure.

    My sincerest apologies to anyone angered by my naiveness, I am but a humble peasant in this vast forum of kings.

    It's pretty easy. Would you like a diagram? We can post it here if it would help your local tech.

    If you aren't being sarcastic (I can never tell on forums) then that would be really useful thanks :)

    Yes, you will need a blend pot for your 'B' pot. They are available in all of the popular impedance values, so finding one to match your other pots is pretty much the only trick. I have two of my basses wired this way and love it. I have one more to convert one of these days.

    Thanks very much for all your help guys :) where would I be without TB?

    I think my fender jazz passive had 250s, but I will check tomorrow
     
  11. You will want a 500k blend then.
