    Before I start work, can I just double check I'm following the right wiring diagram to rewire my G2420? I have all new pots, pickups, switch, jack, treble bleed so that's all sorted. With the stock wiring I don't like the individual pickup volume's killing the volume on both pickups with the switch on middle so I think this is the right diagram to follow if you can please confirm? Cheers Al

    Yes. Individual volumes are reverse here, so it won't short anything when turned down.

    @ALS57 ,

    For Neck and Bridge volumes, use preferably Reverse LOG C500K pots for optimal progressivity. Linear B500K would be a lesser alternative, but LOG A500K will nearly act as switches, offering no spreaded adjustment.

    This is due to the reverse wiring of these two pots. ;)

    All other pots can stay A500K, as usual.

    But it's me, OK ? :D

    A+!

    Fine ! It's not as good as C500K but better than A500K... ;)

    A+!
