    okey, i dont know where to post this....

    For a couple of months ago i bought Dean edge fretless and i haven't played it much because the strings(i'm going to change them soon), anyway when i played it yesterday i got no sound of it, the volume pot was at full but no sound, i changed it to half and suddenly it produced a nasty distortion... what's wrong?

    there's only sound when the volume pot is turned half and when it is it distorts...
     
  2. It could be dust in the pot. twist the pot vigorously for a while and see if that helps the situation. you may hear some crackling and eventually a clearer sound if you're plugged in while doing it.

    If that's not it, i havent a clue :meh:
