Ok, the volume knob on my gibson is acting funny
no matter where i turn it, no sound comes through but when i pull it a little bit it works fine....

This happened because my guitar kept cutting out when i would touch the volume knob so i decided to take the knob off. now it doesnt work at all....any ideas?

probably just dirty, it happens. or it's completely shot in that case a new one is only like 3 bucks.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

if you have a local guitar shop that does repairs they should have some pots laying around and could probably fix it up for you. at a price of course.

Yea I just ordered the one from stewmac with express shipping
Came to just under 25 dollars which isnt that bad considering i need it badly
Im gonna learn how to do it, i need the experience haha
My dad has a book on how to wire pickups and pots so ill take a look
It should be easy right?
Just solder the right wires to the right spots

EDIT: Yea the pot is pretty much shot. Thanks for the help everyone!
