Okay so this just started happening a few minutes ago, my tone knob's washer was loose so i took off the cover off the knob and tightened it. Now for some reason, the knob turns more and when i turn it all the way down the volume cuts out.
I'll tell you what happened: you turned your tone pot and broke the solder joint between it and the capacitor. Now it's a volume knob.
Damn, is that expensive to fix?
nah not really. It just needs a little bit of soldering. It won't take you long.
