Hey so my Epiphone Les Paul (Its the tribute pro) still produces sound out of an amp when the volume knobs are at 0, what could be causing this? I'm guessing its either a wiring problem or the pots. Should I look into replacing the pots (most people complain about stock electronics, no sure if that caries into high quality epiphones) or should I just ignore the problem cause a
pedal can get me quiet when I need it?

Um, why worry about it? Who needs to play at 0? Not trying to be offensive, but this seems like a problem that doesn't need to be solved. Maybe I'm missing something...

I'm mainly worried that my guitar doesn't do what it should, but yeah its not a big deal. A few reasons you may want to play at 0 is in between songs on stage or if someone comes up to you while you're practicing to talk. Or if your amp starts making odd noises you can easily stop it from wherever you are.

What exactly is a 'Tribute Pro' model from Epi ???

It would definately be a problem for me, If i cut the volume to 0 I dont want any noise until I dime it again.... pots are cheap, Id start there.

Your only hope is to buy and install a new volume pot. They're not too expensive.

Question. Is it one of the epiphone 60's led Paul's? If so my friend has one and his does the same thing, its very quiet, but still produces noise. The pickups are very high out put, VERY. Same with my Washburn wi-26. Not a problem. A lot of guitars do it apparently.

It could be a big deal in a lot of live situations, I'd say it's worth the trouble to find out what it is. Can you describe the sound? Is it a buzzing, or actual chord noise.

The Epi 60s Tributes have Gibson pickups....

no very high output and not similar with Washburn pups

His must be aftermarket or something then, believe me when I say they are high output. Came from his dad in prison though, so we won't k ow til we look.
