    A quick look at the calculator (excellent resource, even for the non-luthier!) shows a 'default' compensation of about 1/4" at the sixth string, which correlates strongly with the error found:

    Welcome to the forum!

    If it's truly a "barn find", or from any non-sterile environment, I wouldn't be surprised at a spider or other creepy-crawly stuck in the meter movement.

    I agree, based on the info provided. I might suggest measuring resistance (no power applied to primary, of course) between each of the three combinations of two wires, and then measuring AC voltage...

    As far "wiper open" condition, as long as the wiper is tied to the end of the track both circuits are safe with max neg bias.

    The harder a symptom is to troubleshoot, the harder the solution is to name unless it's stumbled upon and recognized in the debug process. Once fixed, there may be no way to reproduce. Bad solder...

    My one-and-a-half cents' worth, based on mods I've tried:

    Do the easy first.
    Replace R27 (NFB resistor) with a resistor-and-pot circuit that can go from less resistance (more NFB and a colder,...

    I prefer the 'drink a beer' mod. Sometimes it takes two or three before I'm satisfied that the amp sounds as good as it can. A funny side effect: my intonation gets better too (source: Joe's Garage,...

    And I'll add that the effect you want is wherever the MV gets set for the bulk of the playing. At higher MV settings, you increase bass, and treble.. not so much. It's already bypassing the...

    Since the signal is capacitively de-coupled from the power rails, you can simply level-shift the -12vdc and 0vdc to 0vdc and +12vdc without problems. It looks like it would work on 9vdc (typical...

    So the fwd voltage drop from the sheet is typically 0.7vdc, what we expect from one diode drop. If you are measuring across two diodes (from + to -, for example, or ~ to ~) you'd probably read...

    First, how does that function? Is it modulating a load impedance on the first stage's anode? That's weird.
    Second, since I don't know how it works, I shouldn't be offering any advice... but unless...
