Hey, I have an Epiphone Les Paul Custom and since a while the volume knob for the bridge pickup isn't working how it's supposed to be. There no difference between 1 and 10, so it's either at full volume or no volume at all. Anyone know what te problem could be?
I don't know what the exact problem is, but it's relatively inexpensive and easy to replace a bad pot.
Ok, so it's probably the pot or wires and not the pickup?
If you have full volume, then I doubt the pickup is the issue.
with any luck, yeah. actually, i'm not sure how the pickup could be broken to cause that problem, it's bound to be the pot, wires, or something like that. The pickup is always outputting full volume, it's the pots and other assorted electronics which allow you to manipulate what the pickup is putting out. As far as i'm aware, anyway.
Change the pot, its at most a $10 change.
yea of course, dumb question of me.. I guess ill change the pot then, thanks!
One kid I knew had this problem... turned out it was a cord. It was a stereo cord, which gave him a constant output.
