Neck tone on one of my LPs doesn't seem to be working. Nothing happens when I turn the knob from 10 to 0. Neck tone pot measures out at 528K using a multimeter. Does this mean the neck tone cap is dead or there's a cold solder joint between the cap and the pot(s)? Also, when I tap on the pickup covers, the neck pup sounds quieter and less microphonic than the bridge pup which sounds much louder. Yet, when I play plugged in, the neck pup sounds fine to me except for the tone control not working. What do you tech savvy guys think is going on?
