Did RG3120's come stock with 250k or 500k pots?

I just replaced the pot on my 1995 RG550LTD and the guy who did it put in a 500k pot. To my ears, the sound improved dramatically. I wanted to try it with my RG3120, but if it already has a 500k pot, then there's no point.

Anyone know what they came with stock?

Most likely a 500k, you can check the Ibanez wiring diagrams on their website.

Hey, thanks. I feel really stupid for not thinking of that! One more thing: any idea if certain pots sound better than other ones? For instance, will replacement pots from other companies sound better than the Ibanez ones? I'd be interested to know what some of you guys us for replacements.

Probably not. There may be measurable difference between various manufacturers, but I dont think its audible. The feel however can be dramatically different, that is, how lightly it turns.
Also better quality lasts longer.
