    I have a Studio Deluxe 60's from 2010. It has the 490R/BB PRO pickup pair. It also has CTS 500 ohm volume and tone pots. For the five years that I've owned this used instrument, I've never been pleased with the volume pots. It seems to get the best tone from the pickups, I cannot set them anywhere below 8.5 to 9. I should think that there is something out of the ordinary going on. Has anyone used similar pots and discovered the same situation. It's not that I cannot use the guitar. I can and it sounds excellent. Do I need new pots? new wiring? Should I get rid of the coil tap function; it's a feature of this guitar, although I don't use it very often.
