Re: JS Users!!! Hit volume knob with pick hand???
I've had the problem with most of my guitars and I'll agree with Mufaza that it usually happens most when my playing gets a little sloppy. Still, I haven't found it to be debilitating or to cause serious interference and to second what someone else said, having it close it nice on volume swells, etc. For me, it's just one of those things you have to be aware of as you're noodling away and to try and limit the play between your hand and the knob while you shred.
One design flaw I do notice about the volume knob is how the bar hits it when I engage the high pass filter, but I usually don't whammy too much when I have the volume low (ie. need the filter on).
