    Does anyone have a diagram or a picture of what the 5 way selector switch looks like after its been changed so that the bridge pickup is controlled by the bottom tone control?

    I've lifted the pickguard on my 60's CV and I can see where the three pickup wires go to on the switch, but I can't work out which wire to move so that the tone of the bridge pickup is controlled by the bottom tone control!

    Thanks for the reply. Both of my CV Strats have the bottom tone control connected to the middle pickup, perhaps they're wired differently for the European market!

    Anyway, someone replied to another thread of mine and I've now re-wired one Strat so that the bridge pickup is connected to the bottom tone control and I'll leave the other as it is and compare the two.

    Regards
