What's the problem?

You can use a push/pull pot in place of either the current volume or tone, or drill a hole and add a switch.
If you need a diagram, check the Ultimate Guitar Wiring thread.

He could also wire up the old pickup selector to do the coil split, if it's still sitting there doing nothing...

but the 59 in the neck is a single conductor. Only the JB is four conductor. And I thought you needed two seperate push pull pots?

and i don't know if you were being sarcastic about the pickup switch, but I need it...

No, just reading it wrong. I was thinking you only had one pickup now, the JB.

Yeah, you could use a push-pull for either your volume or your tone.
Use that to split the JB.

but its possible to wire both the 59 and the JB to one volume push pull pot and only splitting the JB?? that needs a diagram...

A push/pull pot is just a pot with a switch attached. They operate completely independant of each other.
Like I said before, check the Ultimate Guitar Wiring Thread. You'll most likely find your answer on the first page.

seymour duncan's website had all of the wiring diagrams you will need.
just make sure you get a 500k push/pull pot
this is a very easy mod that you can do yourself. if you're a soldering noob, then practice on some other wiring
there are 2 wires that are probably already soldered together. all you'll need to do is attach those to one terminal of the push/pull, and then run another wire from another terminal to....
oh heck, just check out those diagrams.

I knew sooner or later someone would bring that up

ehh..i'll change it to something that fits.

thanks for the help btw.

tbh, I use 10's most of the time. I've played 13's and they're a bitch. Sound great, but omg, what a pain.

Oh ok then. Yeah on guitars that are Standard tuned I use 10s, on Half step down tuned I use 11s.

Hard to imagine that SRV once used 18's

hahah that makes sense...If anything I would use 8s on a lead guitar (all the bends and stuff)...but then you would lose the thick sound. Curse string gauges and their nuances.
