Push/Pull pots???

For the historical committee:

Did any stock Jem ever come with push/pull pots to control coil tapping?

nope, but the rt650's did. just wire it up like one of those...real easy to do as most of the work is already done from the factory. you just need to solder 2 new wires in addition to replacing the existing pot. need help, just ask! i do this mod on all my h/s/h guitars.

Re: Push/Pull pots???

I had a couple push/pulls on my 7VWH. The middle Tone pot was set up as a coil tap for the two 'buckers and the bottom Tone pot was a Bridge On/Off.

That guitar really sounded great in single coil mode and the combined neck/bridge "middle position" combo was straight sweet twang.
