I just rewired my strat, and I noticed a few very weird things. The whole guitar sounds much quieter than it used to, I realize single coils are quiter than humbucker, but my SG with PAF emulating humbuckers sounds about 4 times louder than my strat currently does, I think I ruined the volume pot by overheating it. Some other weird things I noticed are that from about 10-7, there's normal volume lowering on my volume pot, then from about 7 to 5 it gets veeeeeeeeery quiet, then almost silent from 5 to zero, with some slight volume change audiable.
The tone pot also has some problems, from about 10 to 3, it sounds totally homogenous, no change in tone at all, as if it were on 10 the whole time. Then from like 2 to 0, it sounds as if it's just on zero. Do these sound more like symptoms of overheated pots or poor wiring?
