How to install Dimarzio Knobs on my rg2550ex ?


I've just purchased a set of dimarzio black strat like Knobs, but when i try to fit them in they don't make it to the bottom, i mean they look so high from the pickguard... i though they were standard, is there other mod i need to do before installing them ?

Are you sure they are bottoming out? Does your guitar have serrated pot shafts or smooth? Did you get the correct type knob for the type pot shafts you have? Otherwise you may have to adjust the height of the pots.

serrated... i had the same idea about the pot height but i don't know how to lower the pots and keep them tight.

You'll have to pull the nuts off the top side of the pot..... pull the pot out of the back, adjust the inside nut towards the shaft a little (measure it!) and then reinstall and tighten the outer nut accordingly. You have two nuts on each pot the outer and inner along with the washers!

SORRY for this last question.. :S
Should the nuts have one washer each ? i mean:
1 pot--> inner nut + inner washer and upper nut + upper washer ??

Or just one washer ? i ask you this question because my guitar has installed a sustainiac plus system with a push pull pot, and i don't now if there are missing washers...


Thanks..

That depends..... some have a flat washer on the top side (outer) and a alternate internal type lock washer on the inside alone or along with a flat washer. The Idea is to keep it snug against either the wood or the pick guard. Just don't go over torquing them!
