Volume pot for a universe

hola.

i have a universe [the "ugly green one"] and the volume pot is pretty much shot. even when i have the volume knob turned all the way down now, my amp still gets a signal. Would anyone know what model or type of volume knob it is, and where i could get it?

thanks

No Universe is ugly and green...there is a green one but it isnt ugly!

The UV777GR is a thing of beauty my friend.

You may wish to first purchase some contact cleaner from radio shack or some other store. Its more likely that your potentiometer is dirty than that its actually broken

Be sure to replace with a 500k pot, as anything lower (250k) will cause loss of high end... changing the sound. If you want to add in some top end, go with a 1 meg pot...
For stock-type sound though, go with the 500k.

... my second Ibanez was a brand new '91 UV7BK (like yours, black with green 'trimmings') and it's hanging nearby at arm's reach still... I'm mighty fond of that one.

yes.... i got it fixed....now i can use it...and it does its job when its turned all the way down, making my guitar shut the hell up! only when needed though.

heres an idea i gotta get out of my head.
id like too see ibanez J custom an RG that looks like that fender thats white with the natural flames ( http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/...se_pid/515108/ ) ....that would be sooo sexy sweet.
