Hi all.

Not posted on CBN in a while but glad to see that things are still going strong!

I need some help if you don't mind me asking. Can someone point me to a wiring diagram for two single coil pickups using 1 volume pot, 1 tone pot and a three way Les Paul type toggle switch, please? Not sure how I'd go about making the two singles hum cancelling (I think I remember hearing they can be but I can't be certain I'm remembering correctly) but that would be great if i could. Also, would I be better with 250k pots or 500k pots? 

Thanks in advance for the help folks. Much appreciated, as always! 

Best regards ,

Bear :0)

electrically, i'm open to correction old fella, just pointing you in what i hope is the right direction

Thanks Paul. Exactly what I was thinking of! Much appreciated :0)

Your welcome, it's getting hard to find some wiring diagrams these days. LOL

This is pretty much the way I wire them except I wire from switch to lug 1 of volume(outside lug as shown), then middle lug of volume to lug 1 of tone, and then middle lug of tone to jack. Tone cap on tone pot is the same. This makes the tone pot operate better IMO.

That's really helpful first hand advice from personal experience there, Paul. I've just screenshot what you put for future reference. Thanks for the info on the tone capacitor remaining the same too. I nearly asked you about the capacitor but reread your comment. My powers of short-term memory retention are rubbish lately. 

Thanks again for your kind help, I really appreciate it.

What are we talking about again?  Hahaha

No problem, I'm happy to help out.
