I just purchased a fender strat and i tuned it up and ready to play and noticed that the volume knob sticks out a little bit and turns freely. So i took off the front plate and looked inside and the pot is broken. The pot is separated from the part the knob goes on. It looks like i can push it back in there but it wont let me. When i plug it into the amp, i get no sound like the volume on the guitar is all the way down.
If anyone knows how to fix please tell me how.

You need a new tone pot you can get one from guitar center if you need help sodering it pm me and ill walk you through i had this problem with a used tele I bought off a friend!
