I always, 100% of the time keep both my pickups turned all the way up. And, I never cut any treble with my tone knob. I wish I didn't even have knobs because I sometimes bump them and turn them by mistake. I'm always paranoid that one's been turned down. Do I even need volume pots? Can I just wire both my pickups right to the tone knob, or even better, right to the jack? Is there any alternate wiring that will keep everthing full on all the time?
