Hi guys,

My son just bought an Epiphone Sheridan II and we are trying to figure out the configuration of the knobs and the toggle switch settings ... does anyone know if the front two knobs control volume or tone and which setting on the toggle switch controls which pickup, I think the toggle switch might be flakey

Grab a screwdriver, and touch it on the tops of the pickup poles and you should be able to hear which pickup is in the mix in any position. Normally, I'd expect the Rhythm setting to point to the neck pickup and the Lead setting to point to the bridge.

I'd also expect the front two knobs - those nearest the toggle switch to be volume.

Thanks for your reply Alan, appreciate it, I will try your suggestions. Does anyone out there actually have a Sheridan II and know for a fact what the setup is or can point me to a link that explains?

Thanks

Thanks moonrider! ... paid about 700 bucks for the guitar and didn't even get an owners manual.
