Volume Knob Replacement
My RG 7 string recently started crackling when turning the volume knob, so I bought a replacement pot, and actually upgraded from 500 to 1m. The volume knob actually added alot of clarity and brightness to the guitar which really sounds good.
But I noticed on a few occasions, still trying to figure out a good solid test case to replicate the issue, that I was not getting a nature fade on the volume. On a few instances it seemed like once it got down to about 20% the volume would kick back up, and then as I went to zero it would properly fade out.
I am not sure if it was just braking it in, as after a while I no longer experienced the problem. So my question is would that have been an issue with wiring? I soldered the wires just as they were on the old pot. Or is this an issue with the pot being bad?
