    I have always owned primarily schecters so this was my first strat and what I hav noticed is because of my picking style and the fact that on schecters that the volume knob sits lower....when I pick using my strat I'm always turning the volume on the guitar down and from what I have seen others that I have watched are not really further up on the neck .....I myself always pick near the bridge....any suggestions on how I can pick near the bridhe withought hitting that volume knob?
     
  2. Some folks remove the VOLUME control to the middle tone position, and make the bottom tone knob a master tone.

    Otherwise, one just learns and adapts to it as is. Yeah, unintentional volume swells suck.

    Only practice. You just have to get used to it.

    Push the knob down until it bottomed out on the pickguard (hard to turn).
