  1. Are they as good as the old crafted In China ones?

    Good Squier, bad Squier?

    This is my 1999 crafted In Indonesia PJ special standard, I bought off a member on here and It's one of the best basses I've owned. I've owned Jaydees through fenders MIM and USA's but this thing Is killer. Jazz width neck but just plays and feels better than all the others I've owned (barring the JayDee) Although the neck is slimmer than the Jaydee which I like. Only thing is...It's heavy. Whoever made this one In 1999 must have got his oats off his missus the night before!

    Tried switch cleaner, the volume pots both fully work. No broken wires. It's a mystery!

    Nope. Exactly the same as before!

    So even with my crap ability to solder I managed to clean most of the crap off and followed the diagram. Put it all back together and exactly the same! Oh and I really burned me thumb.

    I'm gonna have a crack at It tonight, If I balls It up I'll go for a Kiogon . Is this how It should be?

    Also the jack socket has one earth and a red and a white wire? Is that normal?

    Should It have all those earth wires? When I looked on google at diagrams there were only a single earth wire going to each pot!

    It's how I bought it mate. Looked a bit dodgy when I opened It up. Think someone may have fitted new pickups at some stage in it;s life. Unfortunately i'm crap at soldering!

    Yes the tone control works fine, as I said, Tone full up both volume pots work as they should, Tone off Both volume pots only work for the last 10% of their travel... Weird.

    Just cleaned the pots and found that If I turn the tone pot full up the volumes work normal on both pickups ! When I turn the tone full off there's no volume until the very last bit of the turn!! Anyone know what's going on here?

    Folks, both my volume pots on my PJ only work when they're full on, are they worn out and if so what pots do i buy to replace them? Cheers for any help.
