    My question is regarding the master tone pot. The knob turns freely but the tone is stuck so to speak in the high or max position. high treble. It crackles a little bit when you adjust though. Everything looks connected , but I know squat about wiring. Do I need to replace it?? Thanks

    the capacitor or pot itself might be shot. you can replace a tone knob for a couple of bucks. Good luck!
     
  3. Just replace it.

    A tone pot is about the easiest thing to replace. It is just a pot in series with a capacitor.

    A new pot will run you about $5, and a good capacitor costs between 25 cents and $10.

    250 K, and the shaft is the part the knob goes on. If the knob is solid, it's a solid shaft. If it's split, then it's a split shaft.
