Hey, I was playing my guitar a while back and noticed the volume knob acting up. When it is turned all the way down, there is no volume, but when turning it up, the volume does not slowly increase. It's silent, then all of a sudden is all the way up. Has anyone else had this problem? Any thoughts on what it might be?

Could need some cleaning, re- soldering, or it could need replacing.

Sounds like the type of pot used. Try a higher quality CTS audio taper (which is what I believe you want for a volume control, not a linear) and it should make a world of difference.
