Hi, I have a jem 777sk, the pots are very very hard to turn, maybe its time to change them, Looking at the schematics, I see those are 500k, in some schematic I see the volumen is 500Kohm G and the tone pot is 500Kohm D.
Looking for it on the web I see options like "linear" or "logarithmic" but...
I have no idea about how guitar electronics work and the terminology and the more i read the more confused i get.
So what i gathered so far is, i need 500k pots and i read the fender 5 way switch is good so im going for that unless i get better recommendations here.
Now what are some good pots...
I've been searching for months but for some reason I can't seem to figure out what would be a good replacement for volume/tone pots. I'm getting into doing some soldering and on one my used guitars the previous owner had done a number on pickup replacements with the amount of solder used, which...
Hey guys, I've been trying to figure out a way to have a switchable 500k/250k pot with more-or-less the same taper, and I think I finally got it.

I purchased a used RG2550 (the blue one) from these very forums a few years back. I immediately put a AHB-1 set in them and I have no idea what happened to the old electronics. What caps, pots and other miscellany do I need? Any specific brands? If it's avoidable, I'd prefer not to buy from...

My volume pot aint working so I must change it.
The main question is, What pot should I put?
According to the Pot spec, it...
I recently purchased a second hand RG3120, produced in 2002. Based on some other pictures of the model, this guitar seems to have its knobs replaced. So I bought a set of genuine Ibanez knobs for this guitar, from a local Ibanez dealer.
When I removed the replacement knobs from my...
From what I understand, I need get two 500k pots. But there are a few different options for each, linear, push/pull, etc. I'm just looking for a little clarification of each and some recommendations for my guitar. The pickups I have are: Evolution Neck, Evolution single, and Evo 2 in the bridge.
hello everyone, does ANYONE know of a potentiometer that installs horizontal instead of vertical? Years ago I saw a customized guitar that had it in wich only 3/4 of the dome knob was exposed and you adjusted volume by sliding your finger across it, hit me up if you ANYWHERE I could find one or...

Model number: 504042
Type: Audio trade, long shaft (for tone)

Hi, can a worn or faulty volume/tone potentiometer (or whatever you wanna call them) cause a guitar to hum when I don't touch it (the humming stops as soon as I touch anything metal on the guitar)?
