Anyone have a link to a schematic for the 'vintage' or 50s way of wiring up a Junior? I'm looking to rewire a couple of project guitars over the weekend. Just doing the single p90, volume, tone thing.
thanks,
James

Word, I wasn't able to find a finite answer from the brief google search I did. Maybe I can write RS and get them to send me a schematic.

Here you go, James. And although this schematic doesn't show it, on 50s Juniors the volume pot is 500K while the tone pot is 250K.

Here, I also uploaded an actual shot of a stock 57. I've got tons of cavity shots of 50s Juniors, but it's so crowded in the cavity, most of them you have a hard time telling what's what. This one shows how the wires sort of criss cross on #2 and #3 lugs of the volume pot. And while it appears that the bumblebee may be soldered to lug #2 on the tone pot, it isn't. It's on #3, just like the drawing.

Here's another pretty good shot.
