How come so many guitars have volume knobs so close to the bridge pickup. That's where I usually have my pinky when I play. Because of just one knob, I'm unable to successfully play really great guitars like Schecters, Jacksons, ESPs, etc. Anyways, is there a reason why they stick it so close?
i would assume its so you can reach it easier when playing
you can pull the plastic knob off or get a small one for the pot shaft if it's in the way.
makes it easier to perform volume swells with your little finger!
They seem to creep closer a little at a time. My 83 fender had plenty of space between the knob and pickup. MY newer squire it was right next to it. And a warmoth body I bought the volume knob was to close the ring slightly grazes the pickup ring. On a guitar with pickguard its not to hard to relocate the knobs lower. But the rear route warmoth no way to do it.
