After looking at your pics again and looking at mine, try tracing the wires with the tie wraps. Mine has the wires tied with string in a bundle near the battery side. I have 2 battery slots but just one battery wired up. And compare your toggle switch wiring to one of the diagrams on the site. Thorneys right about the battery, my lead broke under the cap and neither side would make a sound but with the switches both off everything else worked like a regular guitar, replaced the cap and it worked fine. Not much info but hope it helps.

Very cool info, thanks for sharing that! So the black Dale connectors ARE stock! At least some of the old single hinge, crazy headstock models like ours had them, so this is something to add to our knowledge base.

The pups were not potted, squealed like a piggy. I potted the bridge pup, fixed it right up. I may do the neck as well. It is a warmer tone, I agree. Not as punchy, either. It has 500k pots, not 50k as some had. I used it at band last night and I liked it though it didn't really impress me like my X240 does for some reason (that thing sounds amazing). All considered, I'm very fond of his X310. Love how it feels and plays, love how it looks. May be with me a long time.

Thanks again for checking!!!
