    Default bass contour schematic

    Does anybody know how to wire a guitar for one vol, one tone, and a bass contour knob (like the one used by reverend guitars)? It's for two humbuckers, and I figure the bass contour knob would increase versatility. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I am not familiar with the Reverend bass contour but you can get a bass cut control by putting a pot and cap in series with the signal. Try 250-470pF across the right and middle lugs of a 1M pot. On "10" you get full bass and the cap is paralleled out of the circuit; on "0" the cap is paralleled by the full pot resistance and will trim the low end. If you have a 3M or 5M pot it will have more bass cut effect.

    also, will this bass cut mod help to make a humucker sound more akin to a single coil?
