If I replace the Volume, I'll do tone, too. What should I know about those?

Just find one the same value. Some people like log/audio in there and some like linear. If you hardly ever move the tone control far from full, use linear. If you tend to use the entire range a lot and spend a lot of time with it turned way down go log.

You may want to consider replacing the tone cap at the same time, depending on what's in it. If it's a el cheapo greencap, replace it with something decent. I use Russian Military stuff but an Orange Drop would be good enough.

I use my tone a good bit, so I'll go Log. I'll look into the tone cap, too.

I'm gonna make my own thread, because I've jacked this one enough, and I'll add some images to address my specific problem.

Nah bro, it's cool. I'm actually learning things from your conversation..

So I took the control plate off my rhoads and the wiring is an utter mess and dirty as can be. So I'll clean it with contact cleaner for now, but I might take it to the local tech to give it a look afterwards. The wiring actually looks, for lack of a better phrase, dangerous.


Also, if I want better pots, what ones should I look at, brand and Ohm wise?
