Treble no more?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by AudioDwebe, Mar 6, 2014.

  1. Please help.

    I have a stacked bass/treble knob and the treble quit working. I tried rotating the knob back and forth but nothing. Before putzing out completely, i could get the treble to come on by lightly tapping on the knob. But it would quickly disappear.

    I tried batteries...no go. I looked inside but nothing seemed amiss.

    Would spraying some contact cleaner help? And, if so, where exactly would i spray it?

    open it up and look for something that's turned to where it's touching something it shouldn't; otherwise, you probably have a bad EQ pot.
