First of, hello everybody. I'm new here, writing from ole good France
Here's the situation :
I own a (very nice indeed) Ibanez SZ520FMDAS with Duncan/Ibanez PUs and have just bought a set of Tremspaced JB + regular 59 with Nickel tops. On the guitar, there are two volume pots and one tone pot. For the moment, the volume pots are wired in the Fender way (hot from mic to external lug, internal lug going to the 3-position switch) and therefore, when on the central position, both volume controls act as a master volume. I know that just reversing the leads (having the hot from mics going to the internal lug) would suffice to have independent volume controls, BUT ! Some people told me that having this setup with only one tone (placed after the switch, of course) would almost anihilate the effect of the tone control.
I'd really ike to be able to balance the volume of each PUs on the intermediate position (they are split). I don't mind having a tone pot that would have less effect, but not "no effect at all".
So the question is "can I do it without interfering too much on the tone control capabilities ?". Or maybe, would there be a trick, such as using a stronger condenser on the tone pot. I see that all the SD schematics on the website are wired Fender-like.
Basically, i'd like to wire the guitar like a Gibson Explorer.
Thanks a lot.
