    How do I disconnect the neck pickup from my tone control? I would like to be able to darken the bridge without affecting the neck at all. The guitar is setup for standard 3-way tele switching.

    There should be a wire run from the tone pot to the volume pot. Disconnect that wire from the volume and connect it to the bridge pickup on the switch.

    The tone control will then only affect the middle and bridge pickup positions.

    I might have got the wiring mixed up in my last post.



    This diagram will definitely work:
