    So my Epi Thunderbird isn't working quite right. It's making a bunch of background noise that it didn't use to make.

    If I turn the tone knob all the way off, the noise goes away. When the tone knob is turned back on the noise comes back.

    Any ideas what this symptom might be caused by?

    Thanks!

    Dead battery if active electronics or a broken ground wire?

    Sounds like a defective pot.
