hey how are you?
i bought my guitar (cort mmp-3) a couple of months ago used, and i've been having a problem with my volume knob.

It sounds great turned up to 10, but whenever i touch it (even slightly), my signal cuts, and the sound lowers. if i take the cable out then put it in, it works.

any suggestions?

thx for your time

hey im doing okay a bit of trouble sleeping but thats normal


and it sounds like a couple thingsmay be wrong with your volume pot
1 there may be a loose wire not conecting to the pot or maybe shorting out
2 the pot doenst work anymore and need to be replaced
3 also could be just a dirty pot which can be fixed with some electircal contact cleaner but that doesnt seem as likey since it works when you plug it in again
good luck

I would just open it up to see if there are any loose wires, bad solder joints, or dusty pots. if so, resolder or clean it, cleaning is always a good idea btw
