But not for major tone sculpting, as I once did. Hopefully, Stew-Mac included good documentation outlining the color-code of their pickups I would guess they followed the Gibson convention, but I do not know for sure. Flying V has 2 vols, 1 tone, yes? The new guitar cleans up with the volume right away if the tone is rolled back, i mean it cleans up at about 8 rather then 2-3 like it does with the tone rolled off. The diagram typically draws the pots looking towards the base the underside. The modern version will maintain the overall volume better when you roll down the volume but at the cost of losing a bit of high end.
In my description above, you 'll want to unwind the bare shield from around the other four leads, then connect it to your ground lead. Polypropylene has a very low dissipation factor, low dielectric absorption and exhibits excellent capacitance stability. Choose a 250kΩ push-pull pot to replace your 250kΩ tone pot, or a 500kΩ push-pull to replace your 500kΩ tone pot. I also offer fretwork, level crown and polish. I'm sure they're fine, but eh. Removing the grounds from the non-master vol controls will ensure no tone loss but will also mean that you can't turn either pickup all the way off when in the middle position.

That's the diagram I used Epi 58 Explorer. If you insist upon dual volumes plus only one tone knob. The volume pots will be the A500K, the tone B500K.

The other two lugs are usually along the centerline of the switch. However, there are a few items that are non-returnable. This leaves you with only two leads you will be using, the hot lead red in the diagram , and ground soldered to the backs of the pots like the braided section in the diagram. The higher readings help reduce muddiness, and increase output and clarity.
The modern way is to hook the tone pot up to the outer lug of the volume pot. Let me know what you think: ashbass com.
