I use the guitar volume as a gain control by rolling it back.
Often have problems by rolling slightly too far past the sweet spot for cleans, especially during gigs, and dropping the signal completley.

Really like the Van Halen sound and wanted by single coil humbucker wired straight to the jack like his but still wanted all the pick ups selectable via the 5 way as normal.

Wanted two independant volume controls for the neck and middle pick ups.

No need for a tone control, always set it to ten anyway.

Also wanted a kill switch.

Well figured out all the wiring and made the mods this morning.

This is all just guitar straight to amp.

Any comments, suggestions and critisisms are welcome.
