    Does anyone have a diagram for wiring the neck to the top tone pot(traditional) and the bridge and middle to the bottom tone control? If so please post. Thank you

    Oh, darn I forgot to say I was putting a cap on each tone control. Is there a different diagram for that

    Why are you putting an extra cap' on? The cap' in the diagram works for both pots anyway.

    Kind of similar to the concept that they sell on eBay using two mojotone dijon caps, but I'm using two of the same value caps on each tone pot

    If using 2 Caps, use a .022 for the neck/middle pickups and a .047 for the bridge pickup if your pots are 250k.

    I don't get it. One cap' of the same value will sound exactly the same as one on each pot'?
