Finally got around to posting this. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The two knobs are a master volume and bridge volume. You can get some pretty good control of the sound by fiddling with these.

Thx, yes, I've never seen/heard it done prior and truly LOVE it!! All the goods from one pup, then mixing slightly or half or slightly more or full on to the other... very cool tonally. -Glenn

That's one cool tele. I think I prefer the volume mixing to a switch.

Awhile ago a friend surprised/gifted me w. a Tele-type partscaster. LOVE it. Two pups, master vol. control and a true slider tone control which moves from 1 pup to the other/mixes in increments- that's it. SO cool! -Glenn

Ohhhhh.  Pro level good.

Thanks, fellas. I tune just about everything G-D-G. I'm still experimenting with the two volume knobs, but I like them so far.
