    TBers. I'm planning on wiring two humbuckers to one volume pot and one tone knob. Do I wire both hots on the humbuckers to one lead (middle) on the volume pot? or do I wire one hot to the middle lead and the other hot to the lead not wired to the tone? Please help!
    Thx,

    yes, all your hots should go to the same lug on the volume pot.

    Thanks, David. ONe more question. I've got the second (neck) HB's hot soldered to the lug but it's soldered on top of the lug while the bridge wire goes through the lug hole on the Volume pot. The bridge pickup is working but no signal from the neck pickup. I assume I need to unsolder the neck pickup and make sure it goes through the lug hole as well, correct? your advice is GREATLY appreciated!

    When you mean top of the lug, you don't mean grounded to the back of the pot do you? If so, that's probably your problem! Either way, yeah I'd unsolder and resolder making sure all hots go through the lug hole.

    Thanks, David. That's exactly what I did. I unsoldered the hots and resoldered and that did the trick!
    Thx,
