Pots pots pots... - what's wrong with mine?
I recently change my volume pot (it cracked and didn't stop, just rotated indefinetely). It was a 500k pot but I could only get a 250k. Now, the problem is that now when I roll back the volume it won't mute, just remove a little "tone" but that's it. It still sounds when turned to 0 and that makes me mad!!! Also, I feel the guitar sounds more trebly/brighter than before... is that common to 250k? I thought the higher the pot, the higher the brightness... I did the solder connections the same way the last pot had them so I guess it's fine. Is the pot wrong? or something else? please help...
*note: I DO like the new more trebly sound, so if's there a way to fix it without taking out that part of the sound, it'd be even better.
