What would my potentiometer values have to be to get this kind of a setup to work?

Two humbuckers both connected to the superswitch, with a Spin-a-split (500k?) for both of them, and an individual volume control(500k?).

A Single coil with a On/Off switch and its own volume (10 Meg?)

A master Tone for all of this (500k?)

None of the rest of what I'm putting on should make much of a diffrence with the resistance (Killswitch, 2 outputs jacks with individual selector thingy, Diode cutter, stuff like that)

So... I'm woundering how I could figure out the resistance for all of this? What I have for supplies are:

Superswitch
2 Concentric 500k pots
2 500k Push Pulls
2 250k Push Pulls
4 1 Meg Dual pots (NOT the same as concentric.)
2 3 Meg pots
2 10 Meg pots.

I'm figuring I can make due with SOMETHING of what i have. I have a bunch of other On/On's and stuff too, if it really makes a diffrence. I'm willing to have a master Volume for the two humbuckers, assuiming it wont screw the versatility of the guitar too much.

Thank you, I'm just kinda looking for brainstorming options right now,

why do u need to find any resistance?


i don't get ur post. it's so long, and unorganized, very hard to understand.

Hmm. sorry.


The basic question is

How do I figure out what the overall resistance will be, so that the guitar wont sound like crap in HH or HSH mode, considering I'll have the humbuckers hooked up to the 5-way, and the single coil on its own line seperate from the switch.

Then the mini question in there is "Individual volume control Vs Master volume control?"

I need to know so that the total resistance doesnt get to be too low and everything sounds like crap.

Depends on how you connect the pots. To calculate resistance in series, simply add them up. To get parallel resistance, you need to do 1/(1/R1+1/R2+1/R3...) For example, if you had a 500K pup, a 1M volume, and a 500K tone in parallel: 1/(1/500+1/1000+1/500)=200K ohms.
