Looking to upgrade electronics.
« on: December 16, 2017, 05:26:43 PM »
Hey guys,

I'm looking to upgrade electronics in my Ibanez guitars. I have several RG prestiges and i've always heard that the stock electronics aren't really the best. I was hoping to get some recommendations of what electronics I should specifically upgrade. I'm looking to get the BKP 550K CTS pots, which would require me to drill my hole bigger on my guitar so they can fit. In addition to the pots, what other electronics upgrades do you folks recommend?

I would upgrade the switch.  I just don't know what to recommend but upgrading the wiring, switch, and jack is as important as upgrading the pots, often more so.

You could just use a tapered reamer to enlarge the holes
