SZ520 Schematics

I just got an SZ520 today in beautiful blue quilt and even though there was noise in the pots was happy until I turned the volume down and it didn't get any quieter. I can't seem to find schematics for it online. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. Thanks..Chris..

Re: SZ520 Schematics

I did find that on Ibanez page last night after posting the question. I just wasn't sure if it were a 2004 or 2005 model so I took it apart, took out the pickups and found that it is a 2005 with pickups from a 2004, wired as a 2005 which has it totally messed up. volumes don't work at all and I think even the pickups are both on all the time.. Thanks..Chris

Re: SZ520 Schematics

Switch or output socket issues by the sound of it, not pots, unless the guitar has a faulty earth lead.
