I recently acquired a cheap guitar off of ebay and as I installed my new humucker I noticed that the tone pot had been disabled (wires not soldered there anymore).
At the time I was in a rush so I just installed the new humbucker and tested it out and I liked the tone... so I am tempted to keep the tone pot disconnected... but I am curious what effect does disconnecting the tone pot have on humbuckers?
The way I see it, tone pots offer resistance to the signal so maybe I am getting a more of the "pure sound" of the humbucker this way? Or no? Are there any advantages to having your tone pot disconnected when it comes to tone?
Any comments appreciated...
