I recently purchase a new Fender '52 reissue AV Telecaster

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

The volume knob has to be turned about 1/3-1/2 of the way up to get a sound out of the amp no matter if the amp is on 3 or on 7 for example.Also, where you plug the cable into the guitar, when I pull the cable out, the silver input on the guitar pops up a little and I have to press it back down.In addition, I am wondering why the guitar arrived with no plastic sealing on the pick guard. All the other guitars I purchased from you were sealed. Was this an "open-box" guitar? Or is this normal for this guitar? . V17414410

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I purchased from Sweetwater
