I'm not liking the taper on the volume pot of the lead circuit of my CIJ jaguar, so thought I'd try a different brand, or maybe a linear taper (let's not start a discussion of linear vs log right now). But I can not for the life of me find anyone selling jaguar parts. I ended up getting a 1 meg pot and then realised that the jag pots are tiny and grown up pots won't fit. Any idea where I can get either Fender pots or pots that would fit? I tried all parts, wd music, axesrus, ebay, amazon and came up with nothing.
Hey guys...first timer here so be gentle. Thanks. So my Mustang (CIJ, '04-05, w/ n&b alnico single coils) isn't giving me much from the volume knob. Specifically, 90% of the volume is in the first o'clock that I turn. At max volume, with one slight o'clock turn down it becomes drastically quieter. Turn the knob lower than that and (it's not silent but) it is not at a feasible playing volume. (This problem occurs when I am playing clean and/or through my LPB-1 [clean boost]. When I engage my Big Muff, the volume knob is more reactive and lets me clean up the fuzz.) Do I need to replace the pot? If so, what type of pot? Could it be a wiring issue? Is thems just the CIJ breaks? Something else in my chain maybe (I have done extensive troubleshooting to isolate the issue)? Sorry to say, but I don't know the pots that are currently in there. I bought the Mustang second-hand; I'm guessing the pots are factory-issue. They look split-shaft, like a Tele I once had. Thanks for any advice. I'd like to be able to service my own equipment, instead of running to the shop and dropping dough every time I need some repair/adjustment. But I am stumped here.
