What is your opinion of this product?
I was excited when it came. Looked nice, felt nice, Thick neck and very playable, Reason I returned it was it had faulty tone pots the hissed and popped when turned and used otherwise I would have kept it. Sure its only a 10 dollar part at best and if you can fix and replace it yourself that's awesome. But if you need to send it out that's another 100 to 150 to have it repaired at your local music store or luthier. The Guitar is nice and I wished it worked right out of the box and if I had the tools to fix it myself I would have kept it. This would have been my third schecter. Think I just got a Lemon it happens.
AMS Responds: Hello Jeff,
Sorry to hear about the guitar. Unfortunately potentiometers can collect fine dust from packing material etc. which can cause them to become noisy and or scratchy. This can usually be resolved with a shot of Tuner Cleaner sprayed into the Pot. This is a quick and inexpensive fix to this issue. It can typically be found at any appliance store for about $3 - $4. Always a good idea to have on hand for guitars-pedals - mixer faders etc. Hope this tip helps in the future. Happy Jammin !
