on my jackson rhoads professional the volume pot doesn't turn the volume of the guitar off, just makes it quiter.

i need to get this working correctly. i've checked the wiring and it seems nothing is loose

i did notice that one of the three "spokes" coming from the pot has nothing attached to it. it's just hanging out.

here's a pic


help me diagnose this and gett it working thanks!!!

sounds like the ground is lifted.


the one that's "loose" is the bottom one in the picture right? that one should be mixed with the solder blob on the back of the pot. then it should work.

the one on the bottom has a blob on it lol, it's just kind of a mess. the blob kinda attaches it to the pot's side

the top one is just hanging out

Step 1: Go to youtube.
Step 2: Seach for "johnplanetz"
Step 3: Watch all of his extensive videos on Pots and how they work
Step 4 : Fix it.

Not affiliated with him in anyway, but I think that will help you a lot.
