I can hear different tones in all of the them.If I want a thick chunky sound,I use the neck (#1) or a light thin sound,I'll use the bridge (#5).It all depends on what you like,and what sound you're going after.In the 80's,a lot of the "new" guitars were made with just a volume knob.This was made popular by Eddie Van Halen.You'll just have to experiment with the knobs to get the sound you desire.
I used to have one of those Kramers with one volume and no tone for the one humbucker.
I didn't need volume, so I wired the pickup direct. It was tone that we wanted. I put in one-only push/pull and 2 capacitors. It irritated people.
Not my problem, but to purists, a guitar that was supposed to have just wide-open tone, now had not one, but two, oh!
I have no idea what you're talking about on Strats. After that I've lost my focal point. I think you need 3 vols and 6 tones.
If you've gone too far already you can set them where you want as long as they don't fall off - you might try Super Glue!!!
Nice job on your bright red beast, Roy! That's what we're talking about. Bend the rules - just don't break the guitars.
