Tone Pot Working in the Opposite

Post by hoax on Fri Nov 19, 2010 4:25 pm

Hi Guys

Just bought a big old jazz box and the bridge pickup tone control is working oppositely. I assume that all I have to do is switch the two wires, leaving the earth where it is. Am I right?

Thanks in advance.

Couldn't wait for the world to wake up so I have sorted it. As I suspected, it is just a question of reversing wires on the pot.

It is a Samick Artist which is basically an Epiphone Broadway or a copy of a Gibson L5. It is a big old boomy monster but it can do it all.
