How can i check if my volume pot is bad? I just got a new Agile 3100 and the neck pickup is super quiet. When the volume is at zero i can still hear it and at 10 there is little difference in sound or volume. The bridge sounds fine and i've adjusted the pickup height.

i ordered online. I will be getting new pickups in the future with some push pulls for coil splitting but I just wanted to know the cause of the problem.

well, whenever you roll it, if you leave the stem in it it will be pretty bad.

...waiit...


sounds like the pot is bad to me, does it sound scratchy when you turn it up or down?

either the pot or a wire is crossed.

the only other thing i can think to do is flick the switch back and forth. blow some compressed air into the hole there, see if a little dirt is blocking the connection.

that happens a lot with new guitars.


either way, it's not hard to fix, but most of the time its try something, then move onto the next option.


also, if the air thing doesnt work call agile, see what he wants you to do. he might send you a new pot if you dont feel like sending the whole guitar back.

i forgot to mention that there is a lot of static with that pickup only

try the switch.

static when you roll the pot?

or just generally static all the time?

dirty switch or bad solder joint.

then i'm leaning towards wiring issue.

does the static lessen when you touch metal on the guitaR?
