    You would want to follow the standard Jazz bass wiring schematic, and just add a second tone pot to the other pickup.....

    StewMac has one on their site for the Jazz bass at:

    The trick with two volume pots is to make sure you put the signal wire from the pickup to the center tap of the pot. This allows each pickup to be turned down without grounding out the other pickup.
