Question about Dean Dimeblade Tribute Electric Guitar
The guitar has two volumes, two tone dials and one toggle switch. The volume on my guitar cuts off after I go below 5 on the bottom volume
When I turn both volume dials on maximum: both pickups play when the toggle is either in the middle or pushed up position; when the toggle is pushed down only one of the pickups works.When I turn off the bottom volume dial neither pickup works regardless ofthe toggle position.
When I have the bottom volume dial on max and the top volume dial off: it
only plays one of the pickups and only when I push the toggle switch down. when the toggle is in the middle or top position there's no sound.
Anyone have any suggestions and advice on how to fix the problem?
If you can't clean the pots or if you just want to try replacing them, try using
500k pots again, in case one or both of the pots is worn or dirty or
defective. If that doesn't work, and cleaning or replacing the
switches doesn't work, then the problem is probably elsewhere.
You could put a 500k resistor (with a sufficiently-high power rating of at least half the power rating (Watts) of the pot) in parallel with the pot, or, to cover all bases, put a 500k resistor from each of the two outer lugs of the pot to the middle lug. That should change it into the equivalent of a 250k pot. You could even just temporarily clip the resistors on, with alligator-clip leads, if you're very careful, just to test it.
