Boost Switch Question.


Mister D

I recently picked up a 2014 120th anniversary Lester. The controls are not standard. Where the treble tone knob should be, there is a mini toggle that is a boost switch. Front pickup tone is a master tone for both pickups. Kinda cool feature. My question is before I open her up, does the boost switch have a trim pot that adjust the amount of boost? Right now it seems to be about 15 db of boost. I would like to back that off a bit if I could . Thank you for the knowledge.

Yes, there should be a trimpot on the circuit board in the cavity. It's small and plastic (white on the one I had).
