hey guys, in my LP special, it is set up a/ 1 vol, coil taps for each, phase(push/ pull w/ vol) and the pup selector.
when i put the push/pull in and check the reading on the multi-meter, it reads 0.00. However, if the push pull is pulled out of the guitar and hanging out of the back cavity, the readings are fine.....
what am i over looking? any ideas would be appreciated.
Johnny says he's bound by only six strings to this world.
............ Is it possible that the ground connection for the volume pot is dependent on contact with any shielding in the cavity?
Or equally as bad, that the rest of your wiring setup is dependent on not contacting the shielding material, and in fact, that's what's happening when everything is assembled?
You're probably looking at an unintentional short between two points when assembled, and it goes away when dis-assembled. Carefully inspect all clearances as you slowly re-assemble your LP. If this seems impossible, I'm sure more than one or two of us can dream up a trick or two ......... but I wanna give you a chance to exercise your troubleshooting talents, first. ;D
