I'm new here.
I have a problem with the neck tone pot in my guitar that is driving me crazy . Hope someone can help me.
my '66 Guild Starfire V, wired with the hot lead from the pickups going to the center lug of the volume pots, like stock. Link to the schematic
the sound of the neck pup gets thinner and weaker (instead of getting darker) when I roll off the neck tone pot. This happens now with a new 300k tone pot as it happened with the old (500k?) pot.
This does not happen with the bridge pup.
The neck and the bridge pup/pots assemblies are identical.
The tone cap is a .022 orange drop.
The neck volume pot works beautifully.
I have tried a different wiring and two or three different caps to no avail.
Any advice is highly welcome...
