i saw this in the seymour duncan forums about using a single pot to use different values for two pickups :

"I wired it last night with a 500K pot with a 220k resistor so the bridge PU sees 250K pot while neck HB sees 500K."

It can work, though it messes up the taper of the pot a little.  I'd have to see a diagram to know if this guy is doing it right.

I'd like to see the diagram also. 

In order for this to work the fixed resistor would have to be wired across the input lug and wiper when the bridge pickup is selected, but then switched out when the neck pickup is active.
