    How do I do this? I have an alpha three way with the eight inline lugs, and have used this diagram, but it only gives me two sounds. Any help is so much appreciated... It's 2 am, and I have been at it since 10:30. Thanks.

    What 2 sounds do you get and which positions? What value caps for each? (i.e. what are the markings 223J, 472K, etc, etc)

    Hmmm

    Well, now that I've had a few hours sleep i realize I did not wire exactly like this diagram. I didn't use the additional capacitor for a dark position. What i'm tring ot get is the normal three way Tele wiring: Neck, Neck and Bridge, and bridge. No fixed bassy setting. I should have stated that earlier. Right now, i am getting the bridge and neck seperatly, and am missing the combination of the two togather.

    In that case use one of the diagrams here, Affinity or CV '50.
