My 2017 Gibson Les Paul Tribute developed a faulty neck volume pot a few weeks ago. It's completely silent between about 8.5 and 10. Practically speaking, it's not a big problem because the volume is always down around 7 or less (I like to crank the amp and turn down the guitar), but still, it bothers me... Anyway, it has the new fangled circuit board and I'm not sure how to fix the pot. It seems like the problem is inside the pot, which I don't think can be taken apart, so I'd probably have to replace it. It also looks like the pot is soldered onto the circuit board, which might be another complication in the repair/replacement. It's under warranty, but I really don't feel like shipping it to Gibson or taking it to the nearest authorized warranty shop an hour and half away. After mulling this over, I'm inclined to take out the circuit board and wire it up old school with all new parts. While I'm at it, I'm thinking about a pickup swap as well just for a change. That way, I would also preserve the original quick connect pickup wiring on the stock 490s and if another warranty problem arises where I do have to take it to Gibson, I could just reinstall the circuit board and plug the original pups and everything else back into it just like it was. What say you, wise men and women of the mighty ST? Is this a good plan, or should I send it to Gibson, or is there a way to fix a faulty pot?
