So my ES-347s volume pots are scratchy and intermittent. What's the best way to spray them with contact cleaner and lubricant? Do I need to remove them, or does someone have a clever trick that makes it a bit easier?

I think there's a place on the back of the pot where you spray into. I'm not sure what the best chemical is to use. If you choose the wrong one you could ruin the pot.

De Oxit should work..not sure about how to get at them without removing... I wouldn't get any on the finish.

Really, if you tie dental floss around each shaft, loosen the nuts then fish them near the f hole, maybe you wouldn't have to remove the entire harness. Just get a squirt into them there.

You may be able to get the straw-like spray nozzle in the pot closest to the f hole but unfortunately you're going to have to remove the others to spray them. Maybe not all the way out like 73Fender said. I use nylon fishing line tied to the pot shafts.

It would probably be easier and more effective just to buy a new one.


Getting it out of a 335 would be a bitch though.
