    This is the first time I've done this, so I'm concerned I've actually got it right. Not only are the pots upside down, the bass and treble are swapped compared to standard Fender, i.e., the bass control is in the middle. Colored wire for the controls is standard blackface Fender.

    These are actually right-side up!

    Turns out on Fender layouts for a gain pot we put input signal on pin 3, ground on pin 1.

    Who knew that? Not me until about a month or 2 ago.

    EDIT: Oh no, flipping them doesn't change the pinouts! :(

    No, but it flips your brain.
