Mine had the same problem when I first got it many years ago. It turned out
to be the felt tensioning washer behind the tuning knob. Loosen the knob,
back it off the shaft a few thousands, and retighten the knob. The balance
is when you have minimized backlash and feel the proper amount of friction.
