so last night i was playing my guitar and i went to turn the volume knob and it came off with the little metal thing that holds it onto th guitar.
i dont feel like getting my guitar serviced. is there anyway to fix it?

you might want to be able to get it off later for one reason or another, and this is a very frequently run into problem. my suggestion is some glue that with a little force can be overcome, but not so bad you can never get it off

did the plastic knob come off the metal shaft, or did the metal shaft break?

what type of guitar? is it the kind of knob with a locking screw?

if the metal shaft pulled out of the guitar, then the pot is broken.

so a new pot will be needed, less than $10.

it's not going to stay in. the pot is broken.

here are two pots.



it's a one piece part. so you can buy a whole new part and connect that to the guitar in the same way as this old one.
the part is under $10, and a soldering iron kit another $10.

or you can bring it into a shop and spend about $25.
