So over the weekend I fell in love with the LTD Jeff Hanneman model and purchased it, but just now I'm realizing that when i shred, I knock the volume knob back, and it gradually loses sound, is there any way to tighten it? Or a different solution, I'm really not sure, I love how it plays but when I play I can't help kicking that thing back, what do you suggest?

I used to have that problem with all my Fender Strats. The volume knob was always in the way. Once simple (although not cosmetically pleasing) solution is to remove the knob and let the pot shaft by itself. Not the best solution, but it does work.

I'm not sure if it would work, but its just an idea.
On the push/pull volume knobs, you could set it up so when its flat against the body, its not hooked up to anything and doesnt function as a volume, and then when pulled up, its hooked up to the pickups and works.
Just an idea you may want to run through a more experienced guitar tech.

Ive just done what Crunchmeister said, but it was on a Squier strat that i wasnt too worried about the looks of.

When you play and it pulls back you could use your right-hand-pinky to oush it back while you play. It takes a little getting used to, but it works fine.

yeah like some others have said, my friend had the same problem and just took off all his knobs

SGloser Kid, how much would that set a guy back? That seems like a not bad idea, I'd definately go for that.

I put speed knobs on my old strat. I don't hit them so easily anymore. I dunno why just worked for me. Try it if you can.

Before you go doing all the push/pull stuff, do you do any middle volumes, or is it all 10 or 0, because if so, you could just put a killswitch in place of the volume and save some confusing wiring problems.

Well from reading the description of that push/pull thing, it looked like when pulled it WOULD be a killswitch, so completely useless for this guy...but maybe i've got the wrong end of the stick

Its pretty much all 10 or 0. I never have any problems when playing rhythm, but when i start soloing you can hear it starting to lose balls, and then i have to turn it up cuz its at about 2. How would you go about putting in this killswitch?
