I might be on the incorrect thread, but those who know how to build guitars should be able to help me...I think...

Whenever I roll the volume knob on my guitar (Squier Strat) a crackling noise is heard through the amp. No other knobs do this. Any idea on what is causing this problem and can it be fixed?

All help is greatly appreciated!

Volume pot is dirty, it may be able to be cleaned with electronic cleaner, or just replace it.

Would I be able to clean it with something like compressed air?

maybe, but usually its a type of contact fluid that is used.

If I'm honest I'm not entirely sure, but I remember having problems with these sort of things and the guitar shop guy said he put some contact fluid on it. I may remember him saying its just like an alcohol soloution or something, basically just a lubricant.

I looked it up. Yeah its made to prevent static interference and such. I'll definetley check some out then. (Plus they're sold at Guitar Center so you're probably right).
