Tone control on my epi 175

Recommended Posts

First it's a great guitar - great feel, great look great craftsmanship - -what I'm less happy with is the tone control as it seems like it only accentuates a high mid frequency, rather than giving the guitar that "warm" sound. Is this the product of the tone control itself, or is it a pick up issue? I can live with it, but if I can improve it, I'm open to ideas. Any suggestions?

Well, the tone controls are going to have to be fished out through the 'ƒ' hole and then put back in place once the caps are changed. You want to tie strings to the pot shafts before you remove them as this will make it fairly easy to get them back in place. I consider myself to be a pro guitar tech and I still shudder whenever I contemplate such a job. Might be wise to let a pro do it.
