Aha, there's the problem, there's no blue wire? :brickwall:

If you are no good with a soldering iron and a multi-meter, I strongly suggest you seek help from your local guitar shop or luthier. Could be simple, either way these parts and time to repair wouldn't be expensive.

good luck...

Leandro,

Pots have a way of collecting dirt and grime over time. Usually a dirty pot will cause static when rotated.

1. Rotate the knob back and forth several times.

2. Try some pot cleaner to remove the dirt.

Last resort, the pot is bad and needs to be replaced.

Mike
