    Yeah, those plans never quite work out lol.

    I'm not happy at all with the taper on the volume pots or the 50s wiring scheme I used so I ordered up two linear taper pots, one 250 and one 500. Pots never read right on the money and are almost always low. But check this out. Dead on 500k.

    That's such a groovy guitar, Elias.

    Did you have better luck with the new pots?
