  1. Pickups & wiring
    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...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    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...
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    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 recently purchased an S420 with the stock INF's. I play in a progressive melodic metal band (The Discovery, check out our FB :smile:) so I decided to go with white w/ black pole Evolution bridge and Liquifire neck. I figured that while I'm getting that done, I may as well upgrade...

    I have owned 2 JS's and currently own one with another in the pike after Election Day. On both of those the Vol/Tone pots turn really easy. They are not loose or defective and work fine. It isn't a big deal but I am just curious about others.

    Having decided that I am going to upgrade the pickups in my Rg to a Crunchlab/liquifire combo I also decide to replace the volume pot with something better. So I buy a cts audio pot off ebay. I unsolder all the leads off the old pickups and remove them, unsolder and remove the old vol pot. When...
  9. Comments to Ibanez
    Plugs are a lovely invention. Soldering isn't much fun. Combine both axioms and it starts looking like a good idea to transition to solderless elements. :) I've read claims that soldering gives you better contacts. Is there any truth to that? Plugs work for EMG, though that's usually actives...

    Quick question. What brand of pots/ 3 way switch would you all suggest to replace in my JS1200? It's a 2010 I got new from Rich. In a little over a year, the pots have become scratchy and one of the push/pulls is stiffer than the other. The switch is noisy as heck. I know I could clean them...

    Has anyone had any experience with dimarzio custom taper pots? I was thinking about using these: 400227883110 and was wondering if it would work with this wiring diagram: http://jem777.home.xs4all.nl/Ibanez_Jem_diagram_photo_1_.jpg or whether I should stick with the specified pots? Cheers...

    Hi everyone. Has been a very, very, VERY, long time since I logged into the forum. As you see, the matter in question is about Yamaha's Pacifica potentiometer (Pots). 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...
  13. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi all, my Js100 suffered a lil' breakdown today, the volume pot (which has been loose for a while) broke in the middle of a recording session. I opened the cover to see that the pot had moved too much and one of the cables (white) detached. I'd like to get your suggestions for a replacement...

    if you were to change everything but your vol control pot's to 1M from 500k,would you get a hotter, brighter or even sharper sound without it effecting your amp vol opening up stage's? or would it effect more of the diff for eq changes? changing everything but vol lvl control "eq's low mid...

    Can anyone explain why my RG550 would have a volume pot with 90K stamped on the back? I can't tell if the Tone is the same or diffferent dt the solder. I in the middle of making a new guitar and wanted to match the electrics in my 550. otherwise I'm just gonna use a 500K audio taper. Any...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    I'm looking into taking components out of an rg1550 guitar and transplanting them into a jem body, but I noticed there is routing under the pickguard of the RG for the volume and tone pots, and none for the jem. Will these pots work or is there some special pots needed to pull it off? I though...
  17. Pickups & wiring
    i have had a s520 ex for a long time now and wanna upgrade it. I put a different bridge pickup and finally learned how to setup the bridge and set my action and I wanna do more to it, mainly for a learning experience. my next plan is to put in new pots and maybe rewire it. I opened it up and...
  18. Pickups & wiring
    Very simple question. When wiring a Strat pickguard, does it matter which of the three pots you solder your grounds to, volume or tone, or can you divide them up in whatever way is most efficient? I'd like to reduce some of the wiring clutter in my MIM Strat. Almost every ground goes to the...

    Hey guys! I'm a new Ibanez convert and have just bought an S420 that's on it's way (though I'll always love my ESP Horizon... sorry!). I have played a few Ibanez's before and like many others am not the biggest fan of the INF pickups so I went ahead and ordered a set of the F-spaced D-sonic...

    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...
