I was going to suggest that but they last for ages don't they? Most people change 'em every six months but I think it's not unheard of for batteries to last over 2 years.

Well its worth changing the battery just to check. Also try a different instrument cable...mine was crackling loads this morning until I changed it over.

Then it's definitely a bad battery or an electrical problem. Consult your local music shop.

Sounds like you have a bad solder joint somewhere..

Is it a constant crackle or does it only occur when you adjust the controls?

You need to open the control cavity at the back of the guitar and check the solder joints, Starting at the jack plug then the volume, bass treble controls and if possible the pre-amp circuit board, If you are not techically minded enough to carry out the procedure then I suggest you take it to your local music shop to see if you can get it repaired
