Option C: Volume/Tone - Blend - ToneStyler


 Option C: Stacked Master Volume/Tone - Blend - ToneStyler   Stellartone Jazz Bass Wiring Diagram C - 2.7 MB
For three-knob volume-volume-tone basses (J-Bass style)

Blend Pot Wiring Closeup   Blend Pot Wiring Closeup - 1.3 MB
For general purpose wiring of typical mono blend pots


Option C: Page one shows the original Fender Jazz Bass wiring. Page two shows the original 250kΩ neck pickup volume pot replaced with a stacked-knob dual-concentric master volume/tone pot; the original 250kΩ bridge pickup volume pot is replaced with a 500kΩ/500kΩ mono blend pot; the original 250kΩ "master" tone pot is replaced with a ToneStyler.

Open the PDF in full-page view, and use your mouse wheel or page buttons to "flip" back and forth to compare the easy "before" and "after" wiring. For a clear close-up view of all wiring details, zoom in to the 100% - 400% image size range.

The stacked volume/tone control allows a fourth control in the space of three. The inner knob is the new master volume; the outer ring is the new standard tone control. The tone pot and the ToneStyler operate independently, separately or together.

There are several sonic and performance advantages when converting the dual-volume J-bass to a master volume control plan:

• Fender's original signal flow error resulting from connecting a "master" tone pot to post-volume signals is remedied

• The blend pot allows the player's preferred balance between neck & bridge pickup levels to be exactly maintained, independent of volume adjustments

• A single-circuit tone control will be properly-connected to one or both pickup outputs at all times, at the ideal "pre-volume" 100% signal level provided at the mono blend pot's output.

Using your new blend pot: turn knob to full-clockwise for maximum volume on soloed neck pickup; turn knob to full-anti-clockwise for maximum volume on soloed bridge pickup; turn knob to the center detent notch for maximum volume on both pickups mixed together. If the soloed bridge pickup is preferred upon full-clockwise blend knob rotation, just swap the two pickup hot wires on the blend pot.
