  1. Thanks for the reply. In the interim I have ordered new CTS pots and I'm going to just go ahead and re-wire everything. I went with 500k pots as that's about the only thing I can come up with online... there just does not seem to be a lot of information on the web about the Epi Viola. I'm also going with a .1 capacitor. I had emailed Gibson about all this information and I did get a fast reply saying that they just didn't know but they would find out and let me know..... They have not contacted me back since.
  2. Hello all, I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone knows where I can print off a wiring diagram for the Epiphone Viola bass... I also need to know what the stock pot and capacitor values that are shipped with the bass. I already pulled off the control panel and the printed values on the pots are covered with solder. I read another post on the forums that kinda touched on the subject but the poster wasn't very clear about the pots being 500k or 250k. I want the same value as the stock pots because I like the tone as is. The pots that came with the bass are just to sporadic. For instance, you can be turning one of them and not much is happening then suddenly, the volume shoots right up. I just want better, smoother working electronics. And I need the wiring diagram because the humbucker pup's are making a 60 cycle hum, so I'm not sure they are wired correctly. The solder job from the factory is not very good. Anyway, I hope someone here can help as I have looked on the web pretty good and I can't seem to find much information at all.
