I recently finished a 3 stringer with 2 pickups controlled by 2 volume pots,instead of a 3 way switch.Thanks to David L.for telling me about this idea (Stracciatella Mod). I used the coils from 2 Gitty Gold Foil pickups.Diodes are soldered between each pot and the jack. Instead of soldering my grounds to the back of the pots, I flattened a piece "tin" from a can and mounted the pots thru the metal and tied all the grounds together with a bolt. It made a nice clean connection

Just realized the Neck and Bridge #'s are reversed on the 1st 2 titles in the video

Doc, A little while back I made another with a similar setup, except I used different pickups, a humbucker at the neck and a single coil at the bridge. The effect is more pronounced. 3rd instrument down on this page. http://bscbg.com/for-sale. take care jeff
