Just bought some Fender SCN pups, no idea what I'm doing . . .

Right - the title says it all. I'll be wiring a strat with these pups, but I've still got to buy the pots, switch and capacitor. I'm gonna shield the inside cavity with aluminum foil, as well as the backside of the pickguard. I'm just wondering what pots to get. I read that the Deluxe series strats come with 1 Meg pots (J-taper for volume, A-taper for tone(s)). Just wondering if anyones wired these before. And I'm not gonna try and do the whole S1 switching thing.

Also - anyone have any good links for soldering, etc.?

I just bought a MIM Fender Strat. Am planning to replace the stock pickups with SCNs and like you don't want to complicate things with S-1.

Did you have any luck with wiring your SCN pickups? I'd really appreciate any pointers to the components, wiring diagrams and any tips.
