ibanez pro line

i own an ibanez pro line 1770 . It has two switses . The second switch
is a push - pull and under it it seems that the pickguard is broken .

what can i do to change it ??? are there any pickguards in stock in ibanez ?

because making a new one is quite expensive ..

Re: ibanez pro line

Hard to say since it's an old model. Have you contacted Ibanez?

You either have a new one cut or you live with it.

Re: ibanez pro line

I once had an old Roadstar with a similar problem. My hack solution was to glue another piece of pickguard-like plastic to the bottom of the pickguard (underneath the busted part), and then drill a hole through that for the shaft. That actually worked fine and the knob did a decent job of concealing the half-arsed fix. Depending on how pretty a repair you want, silly solutions like that often work. However, a ProLine 1770 is a very nice guitar and might deserve better.

Cheers,
Bert

Re: ibanez pro line

I have a 2550, with the burled metal knobs, but it isn't in front of me. Don't they have screws into the sides of the knobs to loosen the knob from the shaft?

PL1770 should be standard knob-lift procedure. Devils fork, rag or whatever. Same thing as pulling Fender knobs.

Re: ibanez pro line

Yeah, you need to put a cloth around the knob, and gently pry off with a flat-head screw driver or something. They are tight though.

Re: ibanez pro line

Hey, it's been awhile since you posted this, but I see that someone in the Ibanez Collector's World Forum (http://www.ibanezcollectors.com/forum/) just listed three PL1770 pickguards for sale. They're black, gold, and textured silver. Check the "Free Classified" section over there if you're interested.

Re: ibanez pro line

i made the pickguard myself cause i searched the internet for a new one but couldnt find one so i could pick my own colour now. it used to be the gold one on a yellow body. now it is black it is pretty. only i'm now stuck on the soldering.
