    I had this problem with my 5-way switch on the first setting, the hum. I thought I would have to replace it...I even got this new switch. Today was the day to start the repair, when I thought why not put a little oil on it just to see? and low-n-behold...fixed it! It still has a slight pop...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    I put one of these along with a Duncan Invader bridge . The idea being with the 1 meg pot that the Invader is bass heavy and the 1 meg would open up the whole range and give more treble too. What would a push/pull tone pot do in this instance and what is recommended 500k or? I don't mess with...

    After a bit of help from you guys.... Now that I have taken all that gold hardware off my jem 7vwh and started playing it again, I am finding that i have to back off to 1 on the volume before there is a noticable clean up of the sound. (Semi high gain on a fender supersonic) On my pgm, which i...

  6. Pickups & wiring
    Hello Jemsiters ! Might be a funny question about my potentiometers on 7 vwh. They should work something like that: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10-increasing tone and volume in the same incremenets,from silence to maximum signal. Instead,they work something like that : 1,1,1,5,5,5,10,10,10,10 ,meaning...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    I have a 92 rg770 and back in the day about 96 or so had a Evo put into the bridge. Now after some reading should I have a bigger vol or tone pot to optimize the pup or is it not high output enough? Seems like I could get a bit more ommph outta it.....

    I've got 2 rg470s. They are circa 2000. I love 'em. I've had some problems with the volume pots. One volume knob, even when fully counter clockwise, does not cut volume to 0. It sounds like the volume is 1. And my humbuckers seem to sink into the body. So, what mods would I do, to upgrade to...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    Hi all, I was checking around for good neck pickup to match up my X2N bridge. When browsing through DiMarzio site, I saw this D Activator-X Neck pickup which has just the same look as the X2N. So without much thinking I purchased one... it's on the way arriving the 18th this month. Has anyone...

  12. Pickups & wiring
    Can anyone help me with wiring an ibanez v7 and v8 to a guitar with a 3 way toggle switch and two volume pots? The v7 has black/red/white/green/bare so I know some of the wires will have to be fused for full humbucker mode. The v8 only has a red/white/bare but I don't know which terminals to...
  13. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    What is the down side of wiring a guitar with two volume knobs and a tone without a toggle switch? I mean, if you have a seperate volume knob for each pickup why would you need a switch?

    I figure if anyone will know, it will be someone on this site. I bought my 7PBK 17 years ago from the original owner. He bought it new from the shop he worked at about 8 months before I bought it from him. The serial number indicates it's a 1989 model. Please take a look at the position of...

    I have to admit that i didn't like Steve Lukather in the past. But now, as i'm growing older :) and out of my shredding phase :) i digg his playing very much. And he's got that big, airy, non-dry sound, at least on newer records i heard. I'm wondering what amps he uses? Or is his sound that way...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    I recently bought a Dimarzio Evolution Bridge and Neck, and a Dimarzio HS-3, now I was gonna just wire them into my already existing tone and volume pots, but I decided to buy new ones, since I figured my baby needed a tuneup, so I bought 500K pots and some resistors and capacitors, and I...
  17. Pickups & wiring
    hey I'm new to the forum! I planning on doing some mods on my Ibanez RGT42DX BP ( ie change the pick ups, change the pots, and the 5 way selector switch), so I have a question or 2 1) would dimarzio 500k pots fit my RGT? 2) would the dimarzio 5 way multi pole pick up selector fit into my RGT...
  18. Pickups & wiring
    I just received an EMG 81 for my Ibanez RG1570 Prestige. I want to let all of you out there that were wondering about this know about a couple of things. First of all, according to a guy at EMG you can mix an active pickup with a passive pickup. He said that you can also still use the 5-way...

    Problems with new Jem7VWH's I have been trying to get a Jem7VWH since the end of summer. I have ordered a total of six of them. Each one that I get has either a warped neck or a twisted neck. Most of them had a hump around were the neck meets the body and this causes major fret buzz on the...

    I am wanting to replace the pots and all of the wiring in my rg350dx. I have a tone zone air norton combo. What pots and caps should I buy? I was thinking of going with the 1 meg for volume. Do I need a 1 meg for the tone or will a 500k work? What about a les paul, do I need 4 or just two? Total...
