    So I noticed that 2 of my pots were loose on my 245se so Upon further inspection and attempt to tighten the nut it was evident that the threads on the pots are stripped and the nut will continue to turn after a certain point. I was able to get one tight enough on the threshold of continuing to turn. The other one was a pain. I tried to put washers in to take up some space so it only tightens on the good part of the thread. But the washers I had were too thick and not enough thread was through the body. Ended up using some thin cardboard that took up some space and I was able to get it snug. So for now it's good but definitely going to need to replace the pots.

    What are the recommendations for upgrading pots with Stock 245 pickups. Where's the best place to order?

    Other ideas to get the current ones fixed or more secure?

    Are they under warranty?
    My dealer needs to replace a defective toggle on my 2012 SE Santana under warranty whenever I take it in.

    Great question! I didn't even think of that. I got the guitar in feb from GC so I would think it is. Right?
