  • wiring problem-help, please

    OK, I've got a stock Dean evo Premium with SD PG's with 1 vol and 1 tone(with push-pull pots). My problem is when I roll down the tone kn0b to 0, the signal is completely cut off-no sound at all. From 1-10 it rolls of the treble like any normal tone pot would do but at zero, it cuts out. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks!

    Kevin, did you buy this new or used? The reason I ask is, it sounds like someone tried to make a no-load tone pot out of your tone control, and cut the wrong side.

    Barring that, I can't think of anything that might cause this except a bad pot. Or, perhaps, some small piece of debris has fallen down inside the pot. Try blowing some air, or contact cleaner in it, and see if that helps.
