Re: need advice with electronics

i dont know that model in particular but i am going to say they are probably short shaft, The only way to know is check though.

As far as caps go, the larger the cap the more treble is cut out of the sound. Small vaule caps are used as a high pass filter like on the high end JS line of ibanez guitars.

You will probably want to go with .022 uf . You may want to play around with the vaule a little or add smaller caps in conjunction with the .022 to step up the vaule little by little.

Either way you go remember that ibanez.com has wiring diagrams, and you can also check out guitarelectronics.com for wiring diagrams.

if you need parts check out stewmac.com or smallbearelec.com
