I wanted a control which allowed me to smoothly attenuate one pickup while both are on, yet leave the sound of the attenuated pickup intact when isolated, without fidgeting with controls - hence, the "Smooth Shave."
This control replaces a pickup volume and consists of a C50K pot and a 3.3Meg resistor. You remove the pickup volume you wish to replace and install the pot as follows: pickup lead to lug two of the C50K, 3.3Meg resistor from lug 2 to ground, lug three to the respective switch lug - neck or bridge, depending on which pickup is being attenuated.
I recommend this control in conjunction with a master volume, which then allows you to adjust the overall volume of a preset pickup mix via one knob.
