hey all
i just had my new pickups installed
i wondering if you can help me out
my neck pickup is a Klein S-5 Scooped pickup, which sounds great with the tone knob turned down
but the problem is that whenever i turned the tone knob down, the volume drastically drops as well
this does not happen to any of my other pickups (attached to the same knob)

can someone please help?
what the hell is going on!

sounds like the cap came disconnected - or it's a bad cap, either way.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

its only like that on my neck pickup though
it doesnt act like that on any of my other pickups (all connected to the same pot)

the neck pickup is a single coil, and the others are humbuckers
does that matter?

Well it could be that just the percieved volume is going down. Without the edge and upper end bite to your tone, you will not cut through as much making it feel quieter while it is really only slightly quieter with just less "cut".

if i'm not mistaken, a volume pot is just a tone pot without a capacitor. so your capacitor may be bad (as somebody else said). so basically you have a classic volume knob and then a "tone" knob that still acts as a volume because it isn't wired correctly. i would take it back, explain the problem, and they should repair it for free since you payed for a fully working guitar.
