Adding a bridge Pickup to a Telecaster Bass

We were asked to add a bridge pickup to this single pickup stock Fender Tele bass.
You get a-lot of bang for your buck with this mod. The bridge pickup not only lets you add high end but when both pickups are on together they act together as a hum canceling pair. We were also asked to wire it like a 60's Jazz Bass with 2 dual concentric pots, or "stack-pots". The upper knobs being a volume for each pickup the lower pots are the tone for each pickup.
