I just bought a JS1600. It's great, my first fixed bridge high-end Ibanez.

But on an otherwise flawless guitar something odd happened. One of the pots, (the volume) the knob came off, with the whole shaft.. (See pictures).

I can't see any obvious way to reattach it. I think there must be some kind of clip or spring that holds it in place, but nothing was loose in the electrics cavity.

Any way to salvage it or do I just need to replace the pot. If I replace it, does anyone have a JS wiring diagram/ part spec so I can keep it to the original specification?

Thanks.

Has anyone had this happen before?

Never seen that happen. I would be inclined to replace the pot rather than rely on a repair. You can find the wiring diagrams here: Ibanez.com | Wiring Diagrams

Thanks,
That's what I thought too. But no harm in asking in case it was something people here had seen before. If there was a viable repair it would've been nice to keep it all original..

I have been playing for 50+ years, I have never seen that happen with any guitar. Very strange. Since you will change the pot anyway....it wouldn't hurt to try a few drops of super glue on the bottom and sides of the shaft and stick it back in. It might just work for awhile or even longer. Good luck.

Happens all the time. The weight of the knob during shipping blows out the plastic clips in the pot.

Replace.
