The 2 Taylor factories, in El Cajon CA, and in Tecate Mex., are quite close, and before 2008 it seems that pieces of the one guitar were made in both places.

Yours was made in May 2006, and that is the most likely scenario for it. Mexican made Taylors are apparently considered to be just as good as US made Taylors.

I have seen it reported that from 2008, more production was done in Tecate, and a guitar made there completely should have 'Made in Mexico' visible somewhere on it or deep inside.

I had this same problem. Pressing the panic button restored full volume, but again only for some seconds. I went to the 'midiscope' feature (in the global menu) to show any midi control messages that could be the cause. Indeed, it showed midi control message with volume, even though I did not touch any controls and no external midi devices were connnected. The midi scope in my case showed message was coming from midi channel 1, controller 11, which didn't mean much to me. I moved all knobs and sliders, like the pitch wheel and volume sliders and saw similar messages in the midiscope, but all on different controller numbers, not #11. Then I thought it could be coming from the external controller connectors on the back. I connected a foot pedal to them and found #11. With finding it, and by doing so, maybe cleaning or moving something in the plug connector, the problem disappeared and did never reapper.

I understand your pain - was googling for similar, and came across this post, 5 years prior. My SGC Nanyo Bass Collection has just started to play silly beggars with the pots, and a bridge fault. Nowhere online seemed to have any details of the wiring, as the problem is, as you say, the fact that all of the tone and volume pots are based on a printed circuit board. If theres a nick or short on the board, its a pig to replace, and I really wouldn't like to have to wire any pots onto it. I'm currently looking at the options of ripping out the old electrics and wiring it from scratch myself. If you're still after answers, good luck!

PS - noted that none of the previous replies are relevant to this - mostly going on about the amps or a Fender guitar??!
