Tone Knob


Recommended Posts

Well I got my guitar all wired up. It's plugged into a 65watt amp, turned up halfway. When the tone knob is at 0, everything is fine. When I turn the tone knob forward, the guitar starts screeching.

Anyone know what's up?

It's some kind of feedback. If you can stop the feedback by muting the strings, it's "normal" feedback. If muting the strings doesn't kill it, it's microphonic feedback, meaning the windings in your pickup are acting like a dynamic microphone. Pot the pickup in hot wax if it isn't potted.
