    just purchased a double $ corvette in the last 6 months....an affordable version online....probably a refurbished model....from china...im happy with the purchase but rear pickup volume potentiometer is crackling...and in some positions drops whole pickup out totally...no signal

    can someone direct me to a source in the continental USA to get a replacement pickup or potentiometer. thanx....

    Hello troyd! Welcome to the forum and greetings from the far far Europe!

    To find a dealer just leave the house and start to walk in concentric circles until you meat one! Should work 100%!

    Talk to Jon at the Nashville Warwick showroom, you can order parts from them.

    That sounds pretty much like a worn/faulty volume pot. Should be easy enough to order a replacement form the Nashville shop and just get it fitted by a local luthier. If you have the rockbass model you will probably need a MEC pot, as its a push pull series/parallel switch as well as a volume pot.
