yeh its the thing you put the knob on, what contols the volume/tone
#12
it's what's under the knob. just take it to a guitar tech and tell him you need to get your volume pot replaced

I'd just replace the pot personally, but you can usually extend the life of your pots a bit by using switch cleaner spray. Longer term, that pot is going to need to be replaced.

You don't always have to just go and replace the pot.

it could just be some dust or something in it that a bit of WD-40 could sort out, you might want to take it to a tech rather than fiddle around in the guitars wiring, but he'll probably just say "you need a new pot" because then you'll have to pay him for the new pot, and to re-solder it, rather than him just squirt some oil in there. Even twisting it lots can solve the problem, if you try this first and it doesn't fix it, THEN you need a new pot.

I had this problem on my scorpion, I fixed down some lose wires in the body & replaced an old washer, fixed the problem.
