    Default 500k volume push pull pot + 500 resistor = 250k on split mode

    Hello all,

    Need help with the attached wiring diagram -

    where should I install a 500k resistor to "imitate" 250k pot on split mode? You'll see that all pick ups are in split mode, when volume pot is pulled up...so I was wondering, if I can attach 500k resistor somewhere in the diagram to get "250k mode"...

    Thanks,

    Here is my suggestion. The 510k Resistor is on whenever the split-switch is activated.

    Brilliant!

    ...now just hook that tone control up to the volume control.

    Pickups don't "take" gain.

    Many thx for suggestions! It worked beautifully!

    P.s.
    I wasn't expecting my Steinberger Spirit to sound that cool and have sustain with jb/jazz combo. What a surprise....
