JTV - 69 US Volume Pot is Loose - Help Please
by Aappleyard on 2013-03-08 06:43:12

Hi guys. Had my JTV for a long time now. Its great. No issues!

Except recently the volume pot seems to have come loose and rotates past where it should!

How to I resolve this?

Btw I am assuming I need to take the Pickguard off.. If so.. Could someone help me with that or explain it? because I have never opened up a guitar before, nevermind a JTV with all its wiring.

I would also prefer to do this myself so I can keep my JTV in check by myself!

Anyway I greatly appreciated any help I can get! Thanks!

Apples.

Hi.

I'm having the same problem with the tone pot.

Any help is welcome.

I had the same problem with my tone pot. I did not have to remove the pick guard.  I used the G string of a .011 set in order to get underneath the knob and gently pulled it up and off. That exposed the nut which was easily tightened. I then just pressed the knob back on. Good as new.
