Volume Pot

Hi Everyone, I am new here. My question is.....I recently purchsed a 2000 Ibanez Jem 7VWH and noticed that when I turn the volume pot from zero to ten, there doesn't seem to be much of an increase in Volume. I had the pot changed with a new one ( 500 k ) but still seems to do the same thing. Also new caps where installed as per the ones Ibanez shows on their wiring diagram. It seems that when I turn the volume pot from zero to 3, the voulme increase a grat deal, vut after that not much volume increase. Can anyone help me?

Thanks Guys,
johnny :-)

Re: Volume Pot

That seems pretty normal to me. It will usually just change the gain by changing what the pre amp gets.

Re: Volume Pot

Sounds to me like the guitar has an audio taper pot. You can get a linear taper pot, where "5" is about half the perceived level of "10." I did that on my RG. It's now a push/push linear taper pot to split the bridge pup. Very much smoother increase in volume from 0 to 10. Just depends on your likes.
