i'm going to buy a mexican strat and mod the hell out of it so i can get the perfect tone out of it. i was wondering if you could wire a resistor through a switch that works the same way as turning the volume knob down to, say, 3 or 4.like the oposite of a preamp. is this possible? if so, can someone draw me up a wiring diagram for it? i don't know much about electronics :P

No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

it must be possible because the volume knob is just a variable resistor (is resistor right? i'm not too sure about electronics) any ideas what values to use?

What's a better idea is what I did in my guitar. Have a switch that totally bypasses the volume. Therefore you can set the pot at 3 or 4 and flick the switch for full volume. Its more versatile I'd say, as you can change the "rhythm" volume. I'll make you a diagram.

EDIT: here we go. The one on my guitar has the tone pot in the circuit too so that you can preset that, the bypass it.
