vol knob wont turn anymore??

was practicing for a gig coming up and my vol know got gradually harder to turn, until it's nearly impossible to turn anymore???

guitar is an '89 550 but I replaced the pots quite a few years ago

anyone else have this issue?

tried search but didnt; even know what to search for...

Re: vol knob wont turn anymore??

Had this happen a couple times. Dirt or dust likely got into the pot. Ive been able to loosen it up by spraying some electronics safe lube, but that only solves the problem temporarily. I would plan on swapping it out. It's an inexpensive fix. The ibanez pots aren't the greatest anyway.
