I've had this guitar for about a year now and thought it was something that would loosen up over time. I was wondering if this has happened to any other 59 owners and what is the best approach to fix it?
Vol/tone Knobs Hard To Rotate On Jtv59

I've not heard of this before. These knobs on my JTV-59 rotate smoothly.
You can try pulling the knobs off the shaft, placing a small piece of paper in the knob to act as a spacer, and restoring the knobs on the shaft. This will have the result of lifting the knobs just a bit - perhaps enough to free them from jamming up against the body of the guitar if that's what's happening.

I have the same with my JTV89. The reason is that the knob isn´t exact parallel to the body. Bad manufactured. Result is some friction. So raise the knob a little bit and fine.
