Question about Washburn X10 Electric Guitar

2 Answers

I put a Seymour Duncan in my Washburn at the bridge. With volume on ten there is no output. If I back it off to 8, it works fine. Any ideas? It is an HSS with five way switch.

Clean the dirty volume pot with contact cleaner. If any position has no sound at all, other positions work fine then, the potentiometer is dirty.

Please....I need a schematic for a guitar with 2 single coil pickups, 2 volume controls, no switches & no tone controls


Go to Seymour Duncan.com for the best listings of guitar schematics. Here's the link-
http://www.seymourduncan.com/wiring-diagrams
I think the one you want is-

Wiring Diagrams

If you don't want the selector switch, just take the wire from each pickup that the diagram shows going to the selector and attach both to the positive leg of the output jack.

Hey, I have a Seymour Duncan invader I would like to put in to HSS stratocaster, but the pick-guard has 2 screw-holes where one end of the Pick-up should be screwed in, and the pick-up itself only has one...


Before modifying any guitar of value, verify that the modification materials are compatible and somebody has accomplished it before successfully as the value of the instrument can be severally reduced.

Sometimes one has to use a drill to make extra holes to match...

I would recommend trying the pickup without mounting with screws to test it... Use foam backed double backed tape. This way if it doesn't work the way you want, you haven't torn up anything.

Either the pot is wired backwards (easily determined if volume increases in correct direction) OR the pot may be bad. Some defective ones can have a dead spot at the end.

ALSO check for splder splashes casing shorts.

ALSO check that terminals are NOT touching the wood as the BLACK PAINT is conductive and tied to ground.
