    On this model (5655) the tone pot only works with the bridge pup. Not to my liking...so...out with the tone pot...in with a 3 position rotary switch connected to the master volume so the switch on both the bridge and the neck pup! SAM_0753.JPG

    Ant idea why the tone only works on the bridge pup? Something not right in the wiring?

    That's the design of the circuit, I'm not sure why. I wound up swapping the position of the master and the tone pot and wired the tone pot hanging off of the master so it worked for both pickups when I rewired mine, it's a significant pain feeding the pots through the pickup cavities though.
