Q: (19583)

I am contacting you to ask for some assistance regarding the DeoxIT® D5 and DeoxIT® F5 products you sell.

In short, I am a musician in need of repairing my Fender Stratocaster guitar. The volume knob on my guitar is very crackly when being turned so I took it to the repair shop and they used Servisol. I thought they had repaired it but unfortunately the problem returned very quickly and the volume knob now also feels a bit stiff compared to how it used to feel.

I want to give repairing it a shot myself and I continually read your products are the best for this job. Evidently the pot needs both cleaning and lubricating and both of the above products do this. However, I am unsure of which of the two above products I should use for this job.

With regards to cleaning and lubricating the volume knob on my guitar, should I be using the DeoxIT® D5 spray or the DeoxIT® F5 spray?

Thank you,

Hello Sunny,
This is a common issue that can easily be resolved with DeoxIT®.
Use the DeoxIT® D-Series.

I use the DN5S-6N which has a fast evaporating solvent that leaves a thin lubricating film on the surface. It cleans, lubricates and protects.
You can also use the standard D5S-6 spray. Just be careful if it drips a little. The solvent is slower evaporating.

Remember, all you need is a small amount on the surface. One quick spray, rotate several times, then one more quick spray.

Good luck,

Dr. DeoxIT®
