    I noticed one day after a show that my 2017 Nashville Deluxe telecaster developed a problem. When I turn the volume up, it increases normally up to a point but once it reaches its apex, the volume cuts out completely. I checked it out and everything looks soldered on properly. I don't know too much about electronics, so any info/ideas would be excellent. Thanks

    Get some contact cleaner, like Deoxit. Spray the pot, turn it back and forth a few times.

    If that doesn't help you may need to change out the pot. Not a monumental task.

    Does the guitar have the original noiseless pickups? If it does, I believe they are 1meg pots.

    It sounds to me like you have a short inside the pot.
