Prestige RGs - knurled potentiometer?
I recently purchased a second hand RG3120, produced in 2002. Based on some other pictures of the model, this guitar seems to have its knobs replaced. So I bought a set of genuine Ibanez knobs for this guitar, from a local Ibanez dealer.
When I removed the replacement knobs from my guitar to recover its originality, I found a strange thing. The guitar's potentiometers have "knurled" shaft, while the inside the new (original) knobs is not knurled. On the other hand the replacement knobs (not genuine) are knurled inside, and fit into potentiometers perfectly.
Is this normal for this model (and maybe some other prestige RGs)? Since my new knobs are genuine Ibanez parts, I am wondering if my potentiometers have also been replaced, or Ibanez slightly changed the inside of knobs while maintaining the same parts number.
Thanks in advance!
potentiometer parts number: 3VR1J500G / 3VR1J500D
- It looks like they have knurled shafs.
knobs part number 4KB1J1PC
- Unfortunately none of the images display the inside...
