Re: Tone Controls don't do anything!
If a Fender-type tone stack isn't doing anything at all, this is usually a sign that the ground connection on the midrange control is bad. If you're using a fixed resistor in place of the mid control, make sure its connection to ground is good and also confirm that you used the correct value of resistor. If you accidentally used a resistor that's too high in value, it would limit the effect of the tone controls.
