Hi there,

I ended up picking up a Squier Telecaster Vintage Custom with 2 volume controls and 2 tone controls(originally picked up a Special II by Epiphone but my interest in the Telecaster had me return it for the Telecaster).

I'm having issues understanding the controls. If I am in the middle setting for the pickup selector which I believe selects both pickups the volume controls seem strange. It seems like if I play with the single coil pickup and turn the volume on it up only nothing happens, I also have to turn the humbucker pickup on. So I can't choose to have more volume out of the single coil over the humbucker. Is this normal or am I missing something?

Also, tone controls. Is it normal that if I turn the tone control on the humbucker down all the way I still get sound from it but if I turn the toneof the single coil all the way down I hear nothing?
