ES335 - 2 position volume/tone pots?


Recommended Posts

A bit embarrassing, I bought the guitar new 2 years ago, and just discovered both volume pots and one of the tone pots (why not both?) are push/pull.

Can someone give me an explanation of them?

I hear a difference with the 2 volume pots, but the 1 tone pot doesn't seem to matter whether it's in or out.

Well  it's sort of like you got a new guitar with more features - but it didn't cost you anything 😄  I wasn't aware that they put the push/pull pots on 335s, but if it is the same as what they use on the Les Pauls, pulling up the tone knobs is a coil tap feature (gives more of a single coil sound instead of humbucker) and pulling up the tone knob would switch the pickups from being in phase to being out of phase.  Enjoy your new available tones.
