So, for my latest build I have:
1-an LTD F-250 in absolutely crappy condition
2-a pair of EMG pickups, a passive HZ for the neck,and an active 81 for the bridge with the jack for the active
3-a 3 way toggle switch, a burnt volume pot, and a working 500k tone pot
so, since I really don't want to spend on getting a good replacement for either pickup, I came up with the brilliant idea of wiring up the pups on 2 circuits, switched by the 3 way switch. I'm getting a 25k pot tomorrow for the active, and i'm already using the passive. my only problem is that this way I can't install a tone pot, and the pickups sound too harsh... when I got the guitar, they sounded better, but the wiring was a mess -saying useless is an understatement, it was electrical hazard- so now I cleaned it up, but I need something for each circuit that gives the character of a tone pot at 10(since I never studied phisics in english (or real phisics in any language) I'm not gonna throw words I'm unsure of). I know position 10 should be bypass, but it still changes the tone a bit, and that's what I'm after.
