Missing push/pull on PXL10QWBM - why would it be missing?
« on: July 08, 2016, 01:05:01 PM »
Afternoon Washburners,

I picked up a PXL10QWB online and it's in excellent shape. However, there is no coil splitting/push pull switches on the tone knobs. According to the catalog at http://www.washburn.com/media/catalogs/pdf/USM-WPX2014_011014_LoRes.pdf   that PXL 10 series should have push/pull.

Any thoughts on why it's missing? First run guitar missing a feature? Someone removed it for different pots? (why would someone do that?). 

Any help appreciated!

Hello,

Not sure if the feature you mention is design of guitar as it was introduced or revised added features.  I don't think it will hurt to ask information on the guitar from the person you got it from...  Ask if he bought it that way or it was modded, if it wasn't then you have option to do the wiring yourself (assuming you have some skill in using soldering iron)  just need wiring schematics for the thing you want.  Good luck.

The PXM20EFTBM shouldn't have push/pull knobs since that model utilizes EMG active pickups. The specification is wrong in the catalog and has been corrected on the Website.

Washburn :

We initially offered it with a push pull, then the artist and design team got together and thought it only got in the way and most who bought the guitar did not want that function so it was removed.
