When using a double wafer blend pot, are the pups in series or parallel?
Usually in parallel, where pot CENTERED has both pickups operating equally, and rolling pot fore and aft of the center selects that pickup while simultaneously decreasing the output from the other pickup.
That being said, similar operation CAN be obtained with the pickups in series (sorta like Duo Sonic selection).
Here's what StewMac has (second paragraph): https://www.stewmac.com/How-To/Onli..._Electronics_and_Wiring/Blend_Pot_Wiring.html
I did not know this?
One of my gripes of my Firebird VII wiring is that middle when blended in drains the bridge pickup. It works in reverse too where 0=10 & vice versa.
I found a Dimarzio diagram where the middle gets it's own V/T & the bridge/neck has a shared V/T.
Notice the word used by OP: POT as in resistive potentiometer, not SWITCH as in toggle or rotary wafer.
