Seymour Duncan has something similar called a spin-a-split. It is a "balance" control for the coils, basically. There's a diagram for it on their website. I tried it for a while. Only ever used one...

The treble bleed mod bleeds highs around the volume pot, as long as the pot is not at 10. Tone pot values only affect the tone when it is at maximum, and somewhat marginally. Higher value gives...

One stray wire won't make a difference but if there are several, then it can affect the guitar's tone. It's just like putting extra resistance in line with the signal.

Your post isn't very specific.

I would imagine that the easiest (not necessarily best) way to do it would be to replace the cartridge with a 1/4" phone jack. The output of a phono cartridge is not...

With some types of lacquer (don't remember which kinds) you can shine UV lights on it to speed up the curing, but otherwise it can take a few months to fully cure.
