    So I've heard tale of wiring tone 1 for the neck pup and tone 2 for the bridge and leaving the middle pup on it's own.. I was wondering if anyone had a link for how to do this wiring setup.. Or if someone had a link to a bunch of different wiring diagrams, that would be pretty cool too...

    Oh, and can anyone tell me what size the shaft on the pots would be for a MIK strat??

    Thanks guys.

    I did some wiring last week, I just googled "guitar wiring diagram" and came up with asome great info. For a start, the popular pickup companies usually do a good job with providing info ... dimarzio, duncan.

    All you have to do is move the wire from the middle tone pot to the unused lug on the switch, it's right next to the one it's wired to now. That's the connection for the bridge pickup. Easy.
