Hey GMC's
On one of my guitars the tone and volume knobs move after you get to zero or ten.
If I turn the knob to zero and try to turn a little more the knob gets loose and the whole thing moves.
I tryed tightening it down but it didn't work.
How could I stop it from moving?

How about some small sheet of paper of paper under the knob?
Wored fine for my old guitar.

Have you tried to tighten it from behind?

I had this problem on a guitar once, if you remove the rear plate, and uscrew the volume or tone knob completly get yourself some of these types of washers

its called a shakeproof or star washer.

put one of them onto the shaft of the volume/tone knob then reasemble, the little blades bite into the wood slightly and you shouldnt have the problem anymore.

could also be that the knobs have a screw on the side that needs to be tightened.


As far as I've seen knobs are either pushed into place or screwed tight.
