I have just built up and installed a new pickguard for my strat - I’ve never done anything like this before, and after some slow and painful (solder burns) work, I had successfully got the pickups wired up and the pickguard installed back into the guitar. So far so good.
Strings back on, plug guitar in to amp, and..... sound! Change the pickup selector, and.... more sound! It works!! Each position works as expected! Ok, ideal, now test the volume pot... and that works nicely. Now for the tone pots.
Now here’s the big issue, both the tone pots roll the volume off.... what?!?
How on Earth have I done this?! I followed several YouTube videos, a guide from the place that provided the hardware, and used a diagram off of the internetz as reference, but yet I’ve still managed to wire it up so that tone pots seem to work, but kill the output as well.
Any ideas? I mean, it’s not the end of the world, and I’m dead chuffed I got this far, it would just be nice if worked like a real guitar.....!
