    Im putting 2 regular single coil and a Humbucker in a strat, Should i wire 1 250 k pot for the singles and 1 500k for the humbucker?
    If so i cant find any diagrams showing how.
    Ive got a 335k pot I had in a tele i put a mini hum and a single coil but it always sounded muffled till i put a 500k in there..

    Any ideas?

    Wouldn't 500k resistors hot to ground on the SC's and simply a 500k pot get you there?

    I have yet to figure out how to use 2 vol pots on a Strat circuit.

    I suggest you take a look at this thread. But it focuses on vol/tone/tone wiring. There's a great schematic there (from John Suhr, I believe.) It uses a superswitch that switches in resistors so the SC's "see" 250k pots, and the bridge HB is split in the bridge/middle parallel position AND you have the option to wire it so the tone controls are bypassed when in the 2 and 4 parallel positions for extra sparkle.
