Hi..

I have a cort EVL K4 and have been playin for a little over a year. Off late, the volume knob on my guitar's gotten a bit shaky and m not sure how to tighten the thing up cuz cant see any screw or anythin to tighten. M afraid if i use too much strength, might just rip it off ma guitar.. now dont want dat to happen... some help pls....

Some knobs have a set screw. If yours doesn't, make sure the pot is tightened down all the way. If it is, buy a new knob, they're not that expensive anyway.

Remove the knob and you should see something you can tighten up.

Take the knob of the volume pot shaft, then tighten up the nut while holding the shaft, to prevent movement.

That, and some guitars have a little screw on the knob to tighten it. My jackson does, and it comes loose every once in a while. My les Pauls just pull off.

wrap a cloth around it (underneath) and just pull up. It'll pull it right off, and you dont risk scratching anything by prying with a screwdriver.

Ya, you just have to pull it off. On my old cheap Les Paul, after I took the volume knob off a bunch of times, there started to be a powder on the guitar, and the volume knob gradually began to not fit good. It was very loose feeling. So try and be careful when doing it.
