hi guys i need some help, i have an ibanez universe that i bought new about 3 years ago FANTASTIC guitar been doing most my new album on it and it sounds very unique and i love its sound, thats why i was very disapointed when the volume pot ceased working, i.e. has jammed to the point of breaking, it wont budge and i want to get a replacement pot, im ok wiring in new one but i wanted to know exactly what type of pot shoul be fitted and what height width shaft size to buy, as i want the guitar to sound the same, i much prefer dimarzio pots they perform far better and ive found give a better sound, should i just use dimarzio 500k pots or is it 1000k pots, should i change the tone pot too, any help much appreciated i need to get my album finished and i need my universe,
im not sure of the exact year but its a newer type universe with the edge pro 7 (the new bridge with sound chips) in the black with mirror scratchplate i belive uv77bk serial number f0718957 hope some one can help

iirc, you need a 500k pot. you only need to change one pot (unless you want to do both). just get a split shaft pot that looks like it's the same height as your current one.
