Crazy knobs on my Ibanez...

    Sould someone please explain this to me: The P-pup on my Ibanez GSR200 stopped working for some reason about a year ago. I left it like this for a while, and just used the J by itself. After a while I decided to try and fix the P- pickup, but just ened up detaching the wires that connected to the pickup itself. When I did this, the knobs started acting all funny. When I turned the volume knob for the P-pickup all the way up, the signal cuts out completley. I was just wondering why it does this, I figured that the knob would do nothing since there was nothing connected to it anymore except the connections to the tone pot. I'm not worried about fixing it now though, I get good tone out of the single J and having a "kill knob" comes in handy sometimes. Just curious as to why it does that, thats all. Thanks.
