    I got my guitar back from 'repair', I'd asked for the 2nd tone control to be wired to the bridge pickup. Now for some reason both the tone controls act as volume (cuts about half) controls...how did that happen? (I'm gonna contact the guy, just wondering how)

    Sounds as if the chap has got wires mixed up. My one modded Strat doesn't act like that

    There's no cap in the signal path. Sounds like your service guy needs to be a little clearer on what you want done. It is a very simple mod.
