I never used to use a tone knob, ever. I disconnected them in one of my guitars, and removed the tone in my main RG so I could put a series/parallel/split switch in for the humbuckers instead.
Of course, life being the wonderful journey that it is, I never use the split humbuckers anymore, and I've now discovered that with my RG670, amp and effects set up just right, if I roll all the tone off on the neck HB and hit a note, it turns into this marvellous rolling "flutey organ" sound that sustains forever, so I'm putting the tone controls back into my other guitars.
Of course, if I put all of the controls I could conceivably use onto my RG, the control cavity would look like the offspring of a Casio MIDI guitar, a 70s BC Rich and a Gibson Switchmaster. :sarcasm:
