RG550 20th, is this normal?
I just grabbed a RFR RG550 20th and noticed that it may be wired weirdly but wanted to check with other members.
Basically I think the tone knob is acting on the output volume. If the tone knob is all the way off then the guitar is 100% muted. Once you turn the tone knob up, the volume knob starts to work correctly.
Does this sound normal for these guitars? I have had some other older 550s, a 560 and a 570 and have a JEM which everything works as you would expect, IE volume is volume and tone is tone. I just had the PG off for cleaning and the wiring doesn't seem wonky at all, am I missing something here?
Thanks for any replies,
