    I've just done some circuit simulations and found some really interesting things. I'll update the original post tomorrow

    Updated once again with permanent and switched wiring diagram

    S7eve, you should keep the same tonal response you currently have by changing both your volume and standard tone pots to 1 Meg and adding the bass cut between those and the socket.

    No worries!

    Just a warning, don't use DiMarzio 1 Meg pots, certainly not for the volume anyway. They're a custom taper which basically acts almost like a switch.

    is there anyway to alter where the cutoff starts?

    As i would prefer it to start about 95hz rather than 200hz as thats too far up to the low mids for my liking
