The four knobs are (2) for volume and (2) for VCC.

Each pickup is associated with a volume and a VCC.  The VCC allows you to go from a setting of 10 humbucker (using both coils of the pickup) to a setting of 0 single coil sound without the hum (I think it diverts the signal from one of the coils to ground giving a single coil sound but not the hum usually associated with nonhumbucking guitars).
