Thanks to Mike Lindskold of Stewart-MacDonald Guitar Shop Supply,
I have found out how Fender wires the two pickups in their (U.S.)
Jerry Donahue model Telecaster. I was really only interested in the
“Strat-like” sound, (position #4 or second from Bridge-end of the
5-position switch) and according to Fender’s schematic, here’s
how the circuit looks when this position is selected:

+ _________________ .01 uf/100 V
——–| Neck Pickup |——||——-|
| —————– |
|
| / 6.2k
Ground
| /
| |
| _________________ + 6.2k |
——–| Bridge Pickup |—–///——> Volume
—————–

I suppose the two resistor values could be tweaked in order to
balance the relative levels of each pickup, depending on what kind
of pickups you’re using.
The capacitor seems to have the effect of preventing the sound
>from becoming too “thin” when the pickups are wired out of phase.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
