i have a little (3/4) size electric. it's righty, and i'm lefty. the thing has no tonal range (so the tone knob does nothing). My question is such: if i were to cut the cable and remove that knob control, would it affect the volume knob? see it's like this underneath: Oinlet thing Otone----Ovolume---bass i was wondering if cutting out the tone would short out the volume. KEEP IN MIND that this bass is a piece of crap and would sell for pennies on the market due to it's condition. otherwise i wouldn't attempt something like this. Removing the tone controls would make it easier for a lefty to play too. thanks.
