Narcissism Posted October 5, 2008 Report Share Posted October 5, 2008 For about 3 years now, i've had a bass that i wanted to wire with 2 pickups, 2 volumes and 1 tone. I wired it up according to the EMG wiring diagram from their website, and there's a spot on the tone pot on the diagram that made no sense to me. So i just wired past it and delt with having only 2 volume knobs and a tone knob that didn't really do anything. Yesterday i decided "Hey, i want a tone knob damnit." So i got out a diagram and started wiring it up! Now, I've got it wired pretty gosh darn close to the wiring diagram... exactly on if i'm not mistaken. Here's my problem: The tone on the bass is on full trebel side now for both pickups. The volume knobs work properly as far as i can tell, but the tone knob is being... weird. It acts sort of like a volume knob only it'll... Okay, when its turned all the way in one direction, or all the way in the other, the volume is completely off. If you turn the tone knob to the middle, the volume is all the way up. Here's my wiring: The input jack is backwords from a normal input jack, so i believe i have it wired correctly. Any help is greatly appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
