  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Ok, So I have an RG370dx and I am Having an issue with the tone pot or wiring. I have everything wired as shown on the seymour duncan website under "guitar wiring 102", with a five way switch added of course. I have each of the output prongs on the switch wired so that I should get tone control...
  2. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    There doesn't seem to be a way to embed this, but: I threw a new SSS pickguard on my Strat recently (I'd had it SSH for years), and in doing so tried a couple different treble bleed approaches - I didn't do any video of the "50's wiring" approach, but I did a before/after when I decided to...

    I need to rewire my Jem. Nothing dance just the factory wiring.The volume pot capacitor has b331 on it.I don`t find that size anywhere.Any tips.Also I see conflicting wiring diagrams.Does anyone know where I can find the original factory wiring diagram?
  4. Pickups & wiring
    Most of the stock wiring in S series guitars seems to use a 360pF capacitor on the volume. I contacted DiMarzio and they like to use a 560pF with their pickups which hasn't been easy to find if I don't want to order from China. Any suggestions on sources? Should I go with their...

    Does anyone know what type capacitor is on the 7vw?
  6. Pickups & wiring
    I just watched a video from that guy from stewmac and he said (correct me if I'm wrong) that changing the current capacitor with one with a higher value will create your guitar to sound brighter, is that true?
  7. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi guys, I have seen different UV wiring diagrams on the web and I am not sure about the Tone capacitor. Some diagrams list a 22pP capacitor (0.022uF) while other a 223pF one. If anyone of you has a UV, could you tell me the real value of that capacitor (and in which way it may change the...
  8. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    As many of you have seen, I'm working on a complete rewiring of an Epi LP. I'm looking into putting some decent hardware in it, and was wandering: what really effects the tone? I'm looking at changing out capacitors and possibly the pots. Is this really worth doing? I mean will this actually...

    Working on an Evolution project what capacitor values should be used? I have a .0027 uf paper cap that I can use, would this be sufficent or value to high or low? :confused:

    Hi Jemsite, I make hot rod guitars for a living and I'm interested in hearing from Jemsite readers who have had experience with three-way tone switches like on the old Danelectro single pickup guitars. Thanks, Megguitars
  11. Pickups & wiring
    I just got a great new (to me) 1998 RG550 from a fellow Jemsiter. I installed a Breed in the bridge thinking it would be perfect because of the warmth it (the Breed) dispayed in my Rosewood fretboarded RG370DX. The 550 is still too bright for my tastes, probably not used to the maple board...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    Anyone have the wiring diagram for a 91 RG550? The wiring diagrams on the Ibanez sight are not working so I can't get it from there. I have a bad pot on my guitar and when I opened it up to replace the pot I noticed that there was no capacitor on the volume pot. I just want to see what was...
  13. Pickups & wiring
    I recently decided to fit a killswitch on my thinline, and to do so removed the neck pup tone pot. I've now started finding it sounds a bit muddy. Is this a coincidence or does that little cap add treble even when the tone pot is rolled fully open? Is there any easy way to remedy this or do I...
