fngrpepr Posted April 22, 2010 Report Share Posted April 22, 2010 I'm on my maiden voyage trying to wire up a single coil pickup to 1 vol, 1 tone. I'm following this schematic: So far, I've learned that soldering irons are hot and you shouldn't touch the tip with bare hands, and also that you shouldn't have to hold the iron tip to the pot for 30+ seconds to get the solder to melt (oops, old iron with corroded tip which I've replaced with a new iron). I'm pretty sure I killed the pots first time around since when I had it wired up the tone pot didn't do anything and I was getting strange background noises. Also, I had really made a mess of things with lumps of solder. I decided to start over with new pots and some newfound soldering 101 knowledge. This time, it seemed things went better. However, when I plug 'er in, I found that the tone control still didn't seem to do anything, and further, when I turn the tone knob all the way down the guitar volume goes to 0. Any suggestions on what could be my problem? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
