Re: Prestige RG652AHM pots sound like scraping
Bit random for such a late reply but I have exactly the same problem on exactly the same guitar which I just brought new a couple of days ago. Looking at the QC checklist looks like the guitar itself was built in 2016 so probably the same batch as yours, think it was quite a limited run and they took awhile before they sent some over to the UK, I also picked up one of the last I could find on the internet.
Anyway if the original poster is still around I was just wondering whether you got them replaced or whether they are still going strong, thinking of getting mine switched but would rather not if you found that actually they were fine...
As you said, they work fine, so not really a warranty thing, but they feel and sound a bit like dragging your finger lightly over card, just not satisfyingly smooth like pots on my other guitars.
