    I think the idea of having a bass contour knob like some Reverend guitars have would be a great idea on my LP. I would like to have two volume knobs, one master tone and one master bass contour knob. Sadly I´m to dumb to figure out how to do the wiering. I´ve searched the net but I havent found a schematic/layout. Does anyone have a link or know how to do the wireing?

    Yes this is an old thread. Did you ever figure this out? I'm thinking of doing the same..
    2V, 1T, 1 bass contour

    play a reverend.
    1) they are great guitars.
    2) that feature is quite useful. I find it easier to dial in, especially on someone else's amp thanks to that feature. you can swing from a dark, or mellow sound to a bright twang and everywhere in between.
