This Ibanez came in for a setup and to have the electrics checked over. The tone pot was crackly and at first I thought cleaning it would solve the issue. It did solve the crackle but I then found the pot was working as a volume as well as a tone. Obviously a short circuit somewhere, I was surprised to find that it was actually caused by the pot twisting in the cavity so it touched the side causing one of the lug to go to ground. Easy fix!
