"No didn't mean to give the impression I was talking about the tone knob. Strictly talking about having volume even with the volume knob turned all the way off. Tone control seems to be working fine, as is everything else."

"You need to check the volume pot with an ohm meter, by connecting to the correct 2 leads and turn the control knob back & forth. i.e. 10K pot if it doesn't change pot NG."

Volume Is On When Knob Is Turned Off

Working on my 19th cbg build. However, this is just my second build using two pick-ups, 3-way switch w/tone & volume. My first two pick-up build was a humbucker and a piezo. Using a wiring diagram supplied to me by Del Puckett, a well-known and expert cbg builder, I was able to wire this guitar with no problems.This second build however, has been a son of a beech tree.

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
That they have value both as musical instruments and as works of art. Also they represent the indomitable human spirit, so strong it will find a way to make a musical instrument out of nothing more than scrap wood and a few strands of wire.
