    Default Quick wiring question

    If I do not want a tone control at all
    Would I wire a resistor and capacitor in to mimic the fully closed pot of just bypass it altogether?

    I musta had a broken middle finger for V

    Just bypass it altogether. It'll be a tad bit brighter than a fully open pot.

    Pretend it doesn't exist. Don't wire it or any capacitor. Unsolder it and forget it. Duncan site I think has schematics to wire pickups. I think I used them to put my first pickup in. No tone knob.

    Thx it's for a build hopefully so not unwiring

    Think I had it backward though. I thought increased resistance allowed
    More low end to pass to ground thru the filter

    Increased resistance does exactly that: it increasingly resists the low end passing to ground.
