I have an Ibanez EDB700, similar to what bassvikinggod posted.
anyway, its been around for a while and is pretty jacked up.. the eq knobs are all busted off, but it was working fine until about two weeks ago.
so the input just decides to stop working.. well I don't know if it is the input or something else with the electronics.. methinks something else like volume knob maybe.. but I took a look inside and nothing *appears* to be messed up.

meh.. sorry couldn't provide more info.

sorry, i've been working for a while in anothr state. i am back now. when it comes to electronics, someone knowledgable should probably take a look at it. little things are easy to miss.

Hi, I just bought a Peavey International Series ll, for $10.00 So I know at least I didn't get ripped off too bad!!! :tongue2: It has some problems.
First Is there anywhere I can find a wiring diagram for it. It has a line input(for the amp), it has a Tone, and a volume. It has 2 single coil P-Bass Pickups. It worked for about 10 seconds and now it won't play. :confused:  I took the pick guard off and there was a wire broke  :mad2:, (the one that goes from the input to under the bridge?{where the stings are at?}) well I fixed that one and went to put it back together and noticed that a wire (a blue one) coming from the 2nd pickup was broke off from somewhere. Not sure from where.

Also is there anyway to tell if the pickups are bad :evil: and can you take them apart????

Also there is a few chips in the paint. :shocked: Is there anywhere I can go and get some paint to fix these missing parts in the paint...It has a glossy black finish.
Thanks for any help.
Kim :crazy2:

Hey auto, thanks for your advice earlier

its funny ive been playing guitar for about a decade, yet i never took the time to get down inside workings of the thing.

I have another question.. my low E string is acting a little funky. it is dropped to D, and if I strum an open powerchord it sounds 'garbled' like its out of tune, though if i pluck each string individually it sounds perfectly in tune. a powerchord on any of the frets sounds fine.

it is a 50 gauge string, and the A string is like only a 36 or something, perhaps this is the problem?

also the low E and A strings seem to be suffering from the buzzing thing. i loosened the action but it doesnt seem to be working.

I'm wiring together a Telecaster, and the pickups don't work when they're both selected (they each work individually). Would this be a wiring mistake, or is it likely that the switch is faulty?

you have to jumper the bottom and top half of the switch so that the middle section activates both.

I can field this question..... Shroomism, before the guitar completely died, was the input scratchy, or intermittent no matter what cable you used?
If it is just a female 1/4" problem, it is easily fixable: the colored wire, probably red or white, should go to the tip (or the part where the tip is supposed to touch).... probably just came loose or old solder joint, just solder it back in place with a 60/40 rosin core solder....

if it is a deeper electrical problem, it would be best to take it to someone, because there is no way you could talk someone through anything much deeper without making you take it completely apart.

ALSO......ALWAYS CHECK THE STANDBY SWITCH.

Great, thanks a lot. I'll try it tomorrow. The Fender-type switches are a lot trickier than the Gibson ones.

i am building a stringed instrument repair wiki. can you guys give me some feedback on what sort of repair articles you would like to see. i want to put together 50 or so full articles with pictures before i go live with it.

also, what sort of other functions would you like to see in terms of the site as a whole? things like forums or other features?

thanks for any help you guys can give.

Hmm,maybe you could help me. Have this crack in the side of my guitar and the back of the body is starting to come away. I brought it to the shop and was told it wouldn't be worth the money to get it repaired.

I tried to wood glue the back part coming away but it seems actually trying to get glue in there has made it worse.

The guitar cost me 700e so I'm quite pissed off that it's so weak. It's a composite guitar made with high pressure laminate. Not happy with it at all really,sounds great but it seems I can't even take it out because it will get smashed up,isn't loud enough either but it's my own fault for buying it obviously.

This is the crack. I'm thinking maybe try and get glue on what I can from the outside and maybe get some sort of stick to push it out from the sound hole?


It probably looks a bit worse than this now...

This is where the back is coming away.



Honestly I'd like to sell it and get one that would last through some wear and tear. I mean I've a classical guitar picked up for cheap years ago and it's in perfect nick,my friends shoddy acoustic that has been passed through several hands inc. my own is also untouched. Both solid wood guitars...

Won't be getting a composite again anyway...

Any advice you could give would be much appreciated:thumbup:

I'd just get a new one. You said the magic words that would make me turn it away in my shop. "I tried to wood glue." Whenever a customer tries to glue something themselves it's almost always a total pain in the ass to fix it from that point.

Wood glues won't adhere to composites. With guitars like the Martin X series and Ovation styles, they have a special resin glue they use to bind those.

Get a good Taylor or similar acoustic and it'll treat you right for decades to come.

if you are going to use wood glue , might as well throw a C-clamp on there.

If you are gluing a back (if both are wood) that is detaching, use spool clamps.

Actually I hadn't touched it before going into the shop and the guy said to wood glue it so I did.

I had a dream last night that my buddy snapped the neck on it and I was freaked but happy that he was going to get me a new one:lol:

I don't have the money to throw down on nice guitars so I was kind of hoping I'd get at least 3/400e for this or more possibly to put towards a new one.

If I could just get the back in order then it would just have that crack...
