    Hello guys,
    I have a question about the wiring for a single coil in the Bridge and a Humbucker in the Neck.

    Do you use 250 or 500k?
    Do you use resistors?

    Greetings´

    in theory you could wire it up with a 500k and use the 2nd half of the lever switch to put a 500k resistor across lugs 2/3 of the vol pot when in position 1... but honestly I wouldn't bother. the difference is pretty small and could even be a positive depending on the pickup(s). Personally I would use a 500k and put a 500k variable resistor across lugs 2/3 and dial it in to where I get a happy medium between the two pickups. I'm sure there will be all sorts of opinions forthcoming.

    I would depend if either or both the pickups were particulary bright (250K) or dark (500K).

    It depends on the pickups in question surely, you checked with the manufacturer?

    I use a 500k volume pot and only the single coil bridge goes to the tone pot (250k).
