Installed a 500k Audio taper volume pot into a LP for the neck pickup, prior owner had snapped half the top split off the old pot so no knobs were able to be mounted. Wiring was stock Gibson LP Standard wiring from '07. I put the new pot in and made all connections the same as the prior connection. All joins went quickly, even the grounding on the pot itself. I have also gone through a second time with my iron and made sure none of my joins are cold. Here is the problem: when full off I get sound like the pot is on 8 or higher, roll up toward "2"ish and sound is cut... Full off like you would expect from zero. Continue to roll up and it tapers up from nothing at "2" to expected full volume at 10. Tone control attached to that pot works as expected. Rolling down from 10 I get the same... Nice taper from 10 to 2 where it is full off. Then from 2 to 0 puts it back up to 8+ in volume. Did I fry the pot putting the ground on? If not, any suggestions?
