Ibanez RT wiring diagram

Hey I’m new to this forum so hey! I bought a used Ibanez rt 150 a year ago, things started going wrong with the volume knob so I decided to try to resolve it and connect a new pot. Bad news for me is that someone worked on it prior and it’s a complete mess. I want to fix it myself and not spend so much money through a third party for repairs. Can anyone point me in the direction of the wiring diagram I can’t seem to find it online. I will post pictures of the monstrosity inside as well if it helps. Thanks!

Re: Ibanez RT wiring diagram

so this diagram looks pretty close. The volume pot will pretty much be the same. You can use those pictures to make sure everything gets connected back up to the new volume pot in the right place.

The capacitor that goes between the middle leg and outside leg is a high pass cap, and is a very high value usually some thing like 330 pF or similar value.
