When Neck and Bridge are in series, Neck's volume control becomes a master volume control.

  1. This is very cool but for some reason my bridge pickup only works in the 3rd position?

    1. Probably, you've flipped the switch. Positions aren't simetric.
      BTW, all these diagrams are "AS-IS", there is no support from my side.
