    Okay I am playing my Axcess a little more and noticed that the Volume knob for the bridge pick up doesn't work. It almost sounds like a tone control. Volume doesn't really change no matter what position the knob is in.
    Neck pick up pot works fine. Not sure if the pot is bad or it was wired wrong.
    This is the one model with 2 push/pull tone pots.
    Anyone have a diagram...?

    I'll take a picture of my trad pro wiring this evening when I get home I think they have the same wiring.

    I never thought about looking at my '04 Standard... But I thought the Axcess had the circuit board type pickups... My Standard doesn't...

    Here's a pic of my Trad Pro control cavity w/push pull, hope this helps, if it's a circuit board then others may be able to help.

    Holi carp! Full sized p/p's, that's rather uncommon.

    What do you mean by full size p/p's?

    Compare what you have to these mini-pots, with a mini switch with mini lugs.

    I'd say there is either a grounding issue, or the pot has gone belly up. either way, rather than the signal feeding to ground its creating a tuned circuit.
