Double Neck guitar/bass

Hello I am trying to build a double neck guitar, one bass and the other guitar, however I have done very little wiring. I have drawn up a schematic and need help knowing if it's going to work? (or blow up )



I didn't know what type of switch "Switch-A" is, so I just drew a little description. Switch-B is 3-way switch where it's connected either: left-center, left-center-right or center-right.

Switch-A is suppose to be a pickup selector for both the guitar neck and bass neck. Switch-B is suppose to be a neck selector (bass, guitar or both).

Sorry for my crude drawing.

Thank you!!
Tyler

You've gotta ground your unused lug to the back of your volume pots, and I'm pretty sure the tone knobs are supposed to bleed to ground.

Thanks!

lug is the part you solder the wire to.
Unused meaning, well, not used.

I've not been inside a guitar but have done lots of wiring over theyears and most if not all tone/vol pots have 3 lugs on them in, out and gnd.

^that, it's pretty much the lug you don't solder a wire to.

Ah ok, I see. It was just the term lug I was stuck on. Does it matter whether I put the the volume and tone potentiometers after the pickups in the circuit? Like so (it's modified from the original),



Thanks!

Please? Anyone? I can draw a new picture if it is too convoluted?

Thanks!
