Pinkies and pots

1354 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Eggy
I like to pick and sweep whilst resting the fleshy part of my hand near the bridge. The problem is I've found the middle knuckle of my pinkie keeps bashing against the volume pot when I sweep. The Jem is the only guitar I have this problem with and I'm reluctant to drasticly change my long developed style. Does anyone else have this problem and is there a way to cure it without doing anything too major to my style or my Jem ?

I believe in making the guitar adjust to me not the other way around. So I moved all of my volumes to the tone position, and took the tone out, or stuck it in the rear jack cavity set on "10". It's totally reversable, doesn't permanently change anything.
Here is a Warmoth Strat:

My old (sold) RG 7620:

RG 550 (I've since put the pick-ups back in and there's no tape over the
volume pot hole, it's just an open hole):

RG 550, with custom pickguard (one knob only):

I have a couple others but no pics.
