View Full Version : Guitar pots puzzle
Hi there. I won a gretsch 6114 jet and recently changed the electronics on the guitar. After tha change something weird happened. All pots crackle whenever I turn them. These are brand new pots. The weird part is, the crackles stop if I touch the strings with my hand. So sounds like and earthing problem. Anybody can give me a clue on whats happening? Thanks

You've verified this ground by checking everything from the jack, to the tuners, to the pots and the tailpiece with a meter?
