Re: 5E3 Volume Pot Taper Discovery

Re: 5E3 Volume Pot Taper Discovery
Looking on the back of the 1M volume pot, and labeling the 3 terminals left to right from the back as 1, 2, and 3. I swapped the wires going to 2 and 3.  
Stock form:  
1 is grounded.  
2 goes to the .1 uf cap coming from V1  
3 goes to V2 pin 2.  
I left 1 grounded.  
I changed 2 to V2 pin 2  
3 to .1 uf cap coming from V1  
This seems to make the volume more smoothly adjust, but if either volume is less than 3 it messes with the other one. If you look at most of the other fender amps they are wired like I changed it, not like the deluxe.
