Im looking at getting a Jim Root Signature Telecaster. Only problem I have is the location of the volume knob. Its kindly in the same place as a strat. I had a peavey raptor, which is like a poor mans strat, and I hit the volume knob alot on stage. Will i do that with the telecaster? If so, what do yall do to avoid hitting that knob? Is there anyway to stop it from turning?[other than breaking the knob off. I tryed that with my peavey.

I took it off on my strats.
Simply put the whole thing away(including the potentiometer) and made the 1st tone knob a master volume and the 2nd tone knob became a master tone knob.
It's muuuuuuuuuuuch better.

Used to happen to me for solos back in the day when I was still palmmuting about everything. The tone would get weaker and weaker until it was gone and during a solo I'd have to jam it up all the way again missing a few notes in the process.

Now, when what I play is on a higher string my hand moves a bit towards the neck, this avoids the volume knob and is a great little trick for muting strings you've gone past.

Anyway. Don't let it bother you, there's a always a way around it. You could also just take off the knob (and leave the rest in place! Lol at above post!) and it won't be in the way as much.
