Volume/tone Controls Not Right.

Recommended Posts

I just put a new set of pickups in my project, but the volume and tone controls are screwed up. I followed the wiring diagram completely, I think. The volume only adjusts about halfway, from loudest to moderate. It doesn't shut the volume off completely. the tone seems to be working backwards also. I used the 500K pots from stew-mac. the ones with the long shaft. they were listed under specialty parts. Do I have the wrong pots? They say Alpha on the back if that helps.

I went to guitarelectronics.com and used one of their diagrams. It worked! The diagram with the picups, now that I can sit back and look at it, didn't have a ground for the tone pot. I switched things around and ran a ground and finally it worked.
