I looked around the stickys for a while and didn't see what I needed.
Any help would be appreciated.
Building my first guitar from "scratch"... (ordering the various parts, at least)
need a wiring diagram. I have replaced all my own parts for a while but never had to design/build a set-up from scratch.
Here's my goal.
2 HB, 1 vol and 1 tone, instead of a selector switch, I want a "fader" knob to select/blend the Pups.
I am moderately stupid, so the simplest treatment is best with me. I am pretty much immune to offense so do not be afraid to use the "soft bigotry of low expectation" ( Thank You, W.) when endeavoring to help me.

In case it matters:
Custom rear-routed Mahog. Jazzmaster body angled pocket for TOM bridge & tail.
Maple/Rosewood Tele neck, 25.5 of course.
either '57s or '59s Hubucks.

I greatly appreciate any help here.

Edit- PS
I could really use suggestions for particular specifications for the pots/ potentiometers, etc I need to put this thing together.

Try checking out some bass diagrams, as it's infinitely more common to find that fader set up instead of a selector switch on a bass guitar.

look in the Ultimate Wiring Diagram thread on the first page of this forum for general help and here

http://www.stewmac.com/FreeInfo/Electronics/Pots/i-4137.html

for the blend pot diagram. (2nd pic down). I posted this in the ultimate wiring thread (post #327).

EDIT: Just to pre-empt questions:

Source A & B are the 'hot' outs of the HB's.

Generally 500k pots are used with HBs to 'lighten' the tone (more highs through) but it's down to personal preference really.

I prefer Audio (logarithmic) taper for volume due to how we perceive sound and linear taper for tone but I've seen either used in both positions.

If you have 2 (or single) conductor wire, one goes to ground (bare) and the other is the 'hot' (signal) wire.

4 conductor pickups can be wired for extra effects like series/split/parallel/phase etc but require switches or push/pull pots to work.
