I'm really hoping this thread will be useful to Strat hackers everywhere. For base reference purposes- Typical Volume Pot lugs are wired as: Lug 1- hot (in) Lug 2- signal out (wiper) Lug 3- ground Typical Tone Pot lugs are wired as: Lug 1- ground or out Lug 2- signal out (wiper) Lug 3- ground or out Bear with me, I'm definitely no EE (please correct me) and this will be an ambitious thread. I've got a few diagrams to discuss and contribute but want to start with the basics. That established, there is no better place to start than a Seymour Duncan Strat Master Tone Diagram for a standard S-S-S, 1 volume and standard 5 position switch. This is Tone pot - Lug 3 (out) to Volume Pot Lug 1 (Hot) and Tone Cap goes Tone Pot Signal to ground. No Blender (yet!).
