Did you mean the treble control potentiometer (knob)?

This was posted as an amplifier problem, but since you mentioned that the use of the treble (button?) on the guitar is causing the clicking, i would have the treble potentiometer checked first.

It could have a loosely soldered or broken wire on any of the tabs, oxydized slider contacts, bad ground (negative) connnection, possibly dirt or damage on the resistive track inside the pot.

A broken wire can easily be resoldered, but if there is internal damage or oxydation, the potentiometer should be either cleaned or replaced.

In short words - it may be a faulty treble pot.

There are ways to disassemble and clean a potentiometer, but the difficulty of this task may vary and depends mostly on the type and build of the pot.

The other alternative is to have it replaced.

What are the control knobs on a fender usa telecaster for. explain each knob please


The one furthest from the switch is volume. The next one is a tone knob. Volume rasises or lowers the resistance and makes the guitar louder. You can also "clean up" a distorted tone by rolling off volume. Tone makes the sound more bassy or more treble.

Hot rod deluxe squeals terribly with either overdrive box or distortion box. seem fine with tremolo or chorus box.


I have had this problem at least two times and the fault was a bad hi voltage filter capacitor. With the back of the amplifier removed, it's the grey cap near the top right side. Warning: very dangerous voltage there!!

This is likely a problem with the amp you are using. Turn the treble up higher. If the amp is intended for a bass guitar, it probably can;t handle the highs of the E string. In that case get an amp that has a smaller speaker or one that is intended for Keyboards that has the capability.

I got a Marshall MG100HFX Amplifier for guitar. The problem is that whenever i turn treble switch on it gives clean sound as it should, but in couple seconds it fades away. When I turn the switch again it...


I haven't played or worked on a MG100HFX but I understand amp circuits very well. The behavior you are describing sounds to me like a bad capacitor in the Treble circuit. This is a problem that would require the skills of an experienced amp tech. If you are within your warranty period you might want to return it. If not, a good local repair shop should be able to diagnose the problem.

Good luck and keep rockin'!

This bass squels if you have a bass head and cabinet. i had a 100W amp and it played fine then upgraded to a head/cab. tryed playing it with loud volume, squels. anyway to fix this?


Turn down the treble gain and mid gain... you don't need it for a bass. Prevent the guitar from "hearing" the output of the amp directly. The guitar strings make a good microphone.

Bass strings are too loud in comparison to treble strings whe played through the amp


Adjust this using the EQ on the amp and to a lesser extent the tone controls on the guitar.

Often people boost the bass way up causing this problem.

If the guitar can "hear" the sound, the strings can resonate from the sound and result in feedback. Running at maximum gain is asking for trouble. That causes distortion which drive the speaker as a square wave and worsens the problem. Also back off the treble as you can have supersonic feedback that you can't hear but will heat up your amp.
Test by allowing the feedback and then dampen the strings... if this stops the feedback you need to move the amp away from the guitar. Being a passive pickup makes NO DIFFERENCE about the problem.

Have you checked that it is not the amp that is the problem? This is a fairly common thing to have the amp heat up and the thermal protection shut it down partly. Since the bass drops, a loose connection or bad guitar cable can cause that. If the signal becomes capacitively coupled only the treble will come through and be very distorted. Try a new cable. For the guitar, open the electronics area and look for loose or broken wire.

When I lower the bridge of my ibanez grg170dxbkn to the required action of the strings(2mm bass)(1.5mm treble) my strings on the treble side produce a buzzing sound mostly on the 12 fret...do i need to...


I can understand it a bit of a daunting task setting up these guitars (I have bought at least 5 like this) But yes it might be the truss rod ... Without looking at the guitar myself its hard to say ... If you tighten the truss rod remember how much you turned the allen wrench because if it doesnt work your going to need to reset it and start again ... Remember to turn it the right way! and if all else fails ... If your near me (Bournemouth, South of the UK) then you can always pop on over to mine and I can take a look at it.

Failing that just take it to your nearest guitar repair shop and a setup should cost you about £30 if your in the UK.
