Sorry for the delayed response. I installed the knob and it worked for 2 days. However there were some issues. First, when switching from 1st.to 2nd pos there was a loud cracking noise. As I went through the positions the vol got louder,but the distortion increased. Like it should. By the 5th pos it was crazy. Good. But I had to turn the vol down as I increased the settings. Thanks to all of you who contributed your ideas and schematics. I am going to take the guitar apart and start over. I know a guy who is good with sort of stuff. I'll go see him. I'm sure I did it wrong.
