    Just a quick question...One of the tone knobs on my warwick fell off. Yep, fell right clean off. It made me sad. Anyways, I guess warwick knobs (it's the standard knurled chrome one) aren't push-ons, since when I put it back on it spins and spins without moving the shaft on the pot. What's the best method of putting it back on? Super Glue? I know it seems simple, but I don't want to mess it up since I'm selling it soon.
     
  2. i'm not sure what you are saying.. but it sounds to me like the pot or the knob is broken.. if that is the case i would suggest replacing the broken part.

    Does the knobs have a set screw in its side? if so, just place the knob over the shaft and tighten with an allen wrench.

    Cerb nailed it...all I was saying is that the tone knob was off the pot shaft. Thanks for the tip, I'll go try that...sorry if I wasn't very clear.

    Warwick knobs have screws. And they don't just fall off by themselves...
