Hey guys, I just picked up a great T40 off E bay a few days ago. I sat down with her for a few hrs and gave her a good cleaning, and nice setup. I decided to also check out the electronics as well. I noticed the neck PU is working as designed. With the tone control all the way up it is a single coil and with tone control around 7 it is a humbcker. However the bridge PU is a different story. It seems to be stuck in single coil mode. The tone control acts more like a volume control. If I have the tone all the way up and tap on the rear most coil I get nice strong response. Not much from the front coil. Then I turn it down to about 7 and the volume drops dramatically and the front coil still does not come on. The rear one is still the stronger one. Am I making any sense? Anyone know exactly how this circuit works. I looked at the electronics and everything looks good. No loose solder joints or anything. So how exactly does the switching happen. Is there any component that can go bad in there that would cause these type of problems? Or do I have a bad coil in the pickup? I also noticed that the phase switch will mute the bass when I am using only the bridge PU. I think this is by design correct? That phase switch is meant to be used with both PU's selected correct? Well thanks for any help you can give me with this. By the way here is a pic..
