  1. Pickups & wiring
    Hey, investigating the electronics of a newly acquired UV7BK, I noticed what I believe are way too lowly rated pots. I only managed to grab a pic of the tone pot, but am I reading this correctly? 15 K? Isn't that waaay low? I assume none of this is original... I also have to change the switch (3...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Hey everyone. I have been trying to install the Stephen Carpenter pickups in my 8 String Prestige but I am running into an issue of the volume knob not working. I have full volume all the time but turning the knob doesn't effect the volume at all. I initially used the coil tap volume pot and...

    From the diagram below it looks like there should a wire that goes from the back of the pot to one of the lugs of the pot. For some reason I thought you just need to solder the ground wire for each pick up to back of the pot?? Is this necessary??? Is there suppose to be a wire here??

    What are good and bad cleaning sprays to use on guitar switches, pots, etc.? I'm not in the US and likely won't be able to find the usual recommended types, so any idea what to look for in terms of ingredients or "specs"? I read that some types can damage plastics (and guitar finish?), and...

    Hello, My problem is my Jem. It has allways had a low output level and I thought, because it's a high-end instrument, that everything is as it should be. It even went to see an technician once, and it came back with the same output level. Distorted sounds are ok, but clean levels are really...
