Ibanez S570 brand new, shorted out?

I bought a new Ibanez S570DXQM... And for some reason, when the volume pot is turned all the way up, the tone knob stops having any effect, and the over-all tone gets muddier. It sounds like suddenly all the pickups are "on".

If I dial down the volume knob a TINY bit, the output is cut in half, but the tone knob works again.

I thought at first that it was a bad pot, and I wanted to switch out to 1meg pots anyways... But even with 2 brand new pots that I soldered in tonight, I still have the issue!

By the way, this has happened on two guitars... I returned my first, then got another one... It had the same problem. Any other S570 players with this issue?

I really like the guitar, but this tone... sucks!

Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!
