    Just had a tech pull out the pcb board on my new Les Paul and install CTS pots and mojotone dijon caps and now all of the pots have some sort of scratchy/click sound coming through the amp when turning them. What gives?

    Turn the knobs back and forth briskly a few dozen times to clean the contacts. Guitar doesn't have to be plugged in to do this...probably better not.

    Maybe it will help, maybe not, but in any case it is free! Pots that have been laying around for a while sometimes need to be exercised in this fashion.
