Default Wiring diagrams?

Anyone know where I can find a wiring diagram? I have a homemade guitar that I put an old Squier Tele bridge pickup in, and want to just wire it to a volume control, but no tone control.

Cool, thanks for the diagram. Do I read that correctly, that I bend that third post up and solder it to the pot?

Stupid question, but I'm considering modding a strat of mine to 3 volumes, no tone, with three SC-sized HB's with triple series/singlecoil/parallel toggle switches:

Is the whole "tab bent up" thing the only difference between a pot wired for volume and one wired for tone? That's the only diff I've ever seen... TIA

Excellent, that diagram can also serve to troubleshoot pickups.

A bit tedious perhaps, but better to resolder than buy another pickup.

It is kind of...
A volume control will have a tab grounded with the other two assigned to the jack or the signal from the pickups [the PUP selector or their individual controls etc.]. In the diagram posted here [which is shown from the perspective of the underside of the scratchplate] fully-clockwise [when it's installed from the player's perspective] will have the PUP going straight to the jack. Fully anti-clockwise the jack is short-circuited and the entire guitar circuitry is bypassed.

A tone control has a capacitor placed on the same tab you would ground in a volume control. However the centre tab is only used and wired to a PUP[s]. When fully clockwise the caps effect is lessened by the resistance in the pot. When fully anti-clockwise the cap is fully in effect. What a cap does is store energy and discharge it, like a battery except it itself does NOT produce energy, electricity must be put into it and it must charge. A tone control grounds out a specific amount from a signal, this amount is dictated by the capacitor.

I don't see any single coil diagrams there. The ones they have look good though, easy to follow.
