    I wonder if if one of you knowledible people could help. I had the luck of purchasing a used nocaster yesterday, and it's great.

    would you know what the wiring is doing when wired to fat 50s wiring? It seems that the tone control is mostly a tone control, but it also reduces the volume? I'm 100% sure there is no issue, and love the sound, just want to know.

    Thanks for any help

    Thanks, very useful.

    It definitely isn't the Nocaster wiring, I think it just must bet he tone wired to each pickup. Just hadn't really noticed the volume drop with other guitars. Sounds great though, primarily had strats before, I didn't think it would be this different. Which is a good thing.

    Thanks. Starting to get to understand the guitar. Mind you, it shouldn't be too hard two knobs and a switch!

    I have always spent too long messing around with getting "the sound" instead of just playing.

    The Nocaster plugged in to a Cornell romany, no effects. It is shocking how much you can get from just that.
