You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

m well- i think it you moce the cap around it will fix it- but then that brings the problem wat pups do you want to which volume? i think it would be better to have 1volume, 1 tone, and a dummy knob if you have ahole- or maybe a distortion or soemthing??

idk- im not a fan of 2 volumes, idk why

moce????

i would like for the X2n to have its own volume, and then the singles to share a volume. then tone overall,

if i dummy it, i could do a killswitch, that would be cool, or a pick holder thing.

For the dummy you could use the existing pot unwired for a pick holder. Most knurled pots are split shaft anyways so there's a place to hold your pick.

It's quite possible, I can think of a way, the only downside is that in position 4 (bridge and middle), both volumes will be in use, ofcourse, but they won't be able to work independently for their own pickups. Each will act like a master.

Edit: And that goes a little something like this.

These go to eleven...

and for the pots, 500's on the hum volume and tone, and a 250 on the single volume?

or the other way around?

Again, preference. Use 500k for the humbucker. And whatever you want for "single" volume and tone. Keep in mind that the singles are just single sized humbuckers anyway, but if you want them to sound slightly warmer, use 250k.

hey guys, ive decided to change the wiring, ( thanks for the diagram JimPlaysGuitar, i appreciate it)i decided to do a killswitch, one vol, one tone. since dimarzio does not provide diagrams, could i use a SD one and go by that? or do i need to find one for dimarzio?

Use a SD one, but don't use the same colors. I'll convert, SD to DiMarzio...
