    Hi
    Ive been trying to get my head around this but for some reason I just cant sus it out. I am hoping someone will spell it out for me.
    I have a 50s classic player strat which has a 5 way super switch. I didn't like the neck and bridge together in position 2 as I prefer the out of phase settings.
    I have modded the wiring to provide

    1 - Bridge, Tone 2
    2 - Bridge and Middle
    3 - Middle, Tone 1
    4 - Middle and Neck
    5 - Neck, No Tone

    Now I want to do the 50s wiring type mod. I find that my treble bleed gives too much treble as I roll the volume down making my fuzz pedal sound really tinny.
    I know it must be really simple but I just cant seem to find a way of doing it with one volume and 2 tone pots.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for that. I've got it together now. It was one of those 'answer staring me right in the face' moments!
    Cheers
