So, I finally figured out how to take off my volume and tone knobs to tighten the loose nuts. But after tightening it, the sound it makes is so weak, that it's like it's not plugged into an amp. Even when I tried putting the volume in my guitar and amp to max, it just gives a low sound. I'm thinking this happened when I tried tightening the nuts or maybe when I removed the knobs, which I did good. Anyone can tell me what the problem is?

when you tighten anything threaded hold the other end.

This. You could've snapped the wiring of the potentiometers, for example.

Open the electronics cavity and check every wire and solder connection.

You probably twisted the pot and damaged some connections. You will probably need to resoder some of them. If you pulled to hard you may have actually damaged the pots themselves tho...

Probably tightened the pot so hard that the pot itself started to turn and pull on the wires.

another guess which is what happens to me when I get really low output is the selector switch. I have two guitars with the crappy LP style 3 way switch and both have the problem where the flap contacts dont make a good connection. Not sure what guitar you have(which you shouldve mentioned), but if it has the LP style switch, a wire might be interfering with the contacts.

i have used the TEMPORARY thread locker on some that don't get disconnected ever, for example the gibson switch, or pots. you will be able to get it off, it just wont loosen on its own.

try at your own risk. works great for me. keep in mind this is metal to metal. so just a tiny drop on the threads but again make sure you use TEMPORARY NOT Permanent.
