Please don't shout at me if this has been covered elsewhere but I've been looking through the CBN corridors and back rooms for a half hour before asking. 

I want to wire up a single coil to a volume, tone and jack. I haven't got any capacitors and all the diagrams I'm finding have a capacitor in the rig. Can anyone please help me with this? Literally, what solders to where when using a single coil pickup, volume, tone and jack socket? I don't want to buy a capacitor as that would mean delays and I'm impatient haha. 

Thanks for your help and best regards to you all. 

Signed, 

The nuisance Bear.

The standard is usually 0.022uF, 0.047uF will be a little warmer reminiscent of vintage tone.  It’s good to experiment though, everyone has their own preferences? Cheers 

That's really good news actually as it's a vintage style pickup modelled on the old type gold foils. I may just use the diagram you provided for wiring without a capacitor and just a volume now though (even though I've already bought the capacitors) because I'd like to show the true tone of the actual pickup since they're a boutique pickup. So, even more thanks go to you for the diagram and all your help.

Thanks Brian and all the best to you.

Bear :o)
