    I have a fender jp90 that I would like to rewire with one CTS 500K/250K DUAL CONCENTRIC STACK POT, and a pickup selector switch, how would I wire this? Anyone now where I can find a wiring diagram for this?
  2. I can draw you a diagram if you want it.
    I assume that this is a volume/tone setup?
    Can you be more specific?

    Awesome, I just want the top of the two to be volume, and the bottom to be tone, an input jack and thats it.
  4. In that case, take the standard Telecaster wiring:

    Think of the volume and tone controls as being stacked on top of each other. Wire the pot closest to the shaft the same way that the volume control is wired in the diagram, and wire the pot furthest from the shaft the same way as the tone control in the diagram.

    I'd personally just go with stacked volume/volume. No tone, No selector.

    I've found that the best approach for my PJ is to consider it a P and just dial in shades of J when needed.
