    Les Paul stacked knobs

    Has anyone ever thought of putting stacked knobs in a triple pickup black beauty? As a player who likes to really get precise with volume and tone on each pickup, I think it would be superior to the Frampton style wiring (Three Volumes, One Tone). Opinions?

    How do you stack a knob?

    And WHY would you stack a knob?

    Is this a new thing?

    If I double stack my knobs will I feel shorted when they start triple stacking knobs?

    WHERE DOES THIS MODIFICATION-LUST END PEOPLE?

    Do you mean pots?

    I think it is a great idea there!

    Personally I would not do it but I'm certain it's feasible. You could use the three way selector switch wired normally (neck - middle+bridge - bridge), use three stacked knobs (vol and tone for neck, vol and tone for bridge, vol and tone for middle) and a master volume OR use the three way switch as neck - neck+bridge - bridge, use three stacked knobs as above and install an on off switch for the middle pickup.

    The Freeway 6 way toggle solves all your problems and is far more user friendly.

    I would highly recommend the freeway on any guitar with a 3 pickup Gibson style setup

    What are the positions on the switch? And how are the pots wired?
