On a number of my guitars I have noticed the volume pot crackles when I’m rolling back the volume using distortion. I have cleaned the pots using contact cleaner on them but yet the problem remains! It’s not really bad but it’s there.
I’ve noticed this on Suhr, Gibson, Mayones guitars. Even out of the box it happens.
I sold my Suhr recently and I did say in the advert that the volume pot crackled. When the buyer received it he said that he didn’t notice it. However, this problem happens with different gear and cables so I can rule the gear out.
Is this a normal phenomenon or I am the unluckiest person ever?
