Hi. I have a volume pot on my Tele that is scratchy in the last quarter or so of its throw and that slightly cuts down the volume right at the very last fraction of the 'full on' end of its sweep. I also have similar scratchy issues with an old Squire Jazz bass.* Looking around, I find both scant detail and conflicting information on various vendor websites and forum posts. My Tele has Emerson CTS pots, which I think have carbon traces. I can get DeoxIt products here in Japan. Not sure what the comparable Japanese brands are, but there's bound to be some. Anyway, l see that for pots, some recommend the DeoxIt 'contact cleaner' types (D5S6 / D100s / etc.) and others, on the grounds pots are circular faders and have carbon traces, recommend the F5S FaderLube. The FaderLube argument seems the more reasonable to me, but I have no real idea. Is there any real consensus of opinion on this? Thanks. Pax/ Dean * I might be in not quite the right sub-forum for this - sorry if so.
