    Guitar Pots - Linear & Logarithmic - Volume & Tone...

    Hi :) I get mixed opinions, regarding guitar pots, and whether it's Linear for tone and Logarithmic for volume.. What's the play here? I'm going to re-wire my Telecaster, using 250K Mini Pots, but I can only see Logarithmic pots - would that do for the tone pot as well? Thanks.

    Hello all. I've just finished up wiring the Jimmy Page wiring in a Gibson Les Paul, and when I went to plug it in, I got no sound, just buzzing/humming... When I touch a metal part, for example the bridge, the buzz/hum goes away, but still no sound.. I've followed the Seymour Duncan Diagram...
