How do I replace cord jack on a Peavey bass guitar?


You'll need needle nose pliers, small phillips head screwdriver, soldering iron, electronics-grade solder, socket screwdriver or 1/4" wrench, black electrical tape. Purchase necessary replacement jack. Remove plastic electronics cover plate, located on the back of the body, behind control knobs. This will expose the electronics cavity. Locate existing jack and its wire connections inside the exposed cavity. Remove any electrical tape covering the jack connections. Using a hot soldering iron, touch each of the two soldered input jack connections, one at a time, just until the soldered connection melts. Then, disconnect the associated wires (taking note of which wire connects where!). Once disconnected, loosen and remove the nut on the outer part of the jack that holds it onto the guitar body. Remove the old jack. Insert the new jack (with the nut removed) into the existing hole, from inside the electronics cavity and tighten it in place, on the outside of the guitar body, with the nut. Re-attach the wires to the new jack, by using needle nose pliers to wrap them tightly around the correct posts. Touch the hot soldering iron to each post and apply a small amount of solder to the post as it's being heated. Once the molten solder runs over the connection and looks shiny, remove the tip of the soldering gun. This process takes only 2 to 3 seconds. Let the connections cool for a few seconds. To insulate, wrap connections with black electrical tape. Replace cover plate.

I bought a yamaha electric it has two double pick ups and a single in the middle the volume knob was no good so i changed it when i opened it up they had the wiring all messed up it has a five pos. switch...


my guess is two positions at one end work(aka 1 and 2, or 4 and 5)? if yes, then 2 of the pickups are wired wrong. (if 1 and 2 work, which are the forward positions, then the middle and bridge pickup are wired wrong, etc.) the problem is there is a variety of 5way switches that are different. i would guess yours is "import" style. are there 8 lugs in a single row on the back of the switch? if yes, you probably have an import switch. best i can do in text is tell you that the middle two lugs are common. this means one goes to the volume pot, and there is probably a little jumper between the two lugs as well. now there are 3 lugs on either side of those 2 common lugs. one set of 3 will probably run to the tone pot in some fashion or be empty. the other set of 3 lugs is for the pickup lead wires. it sounds like at least one or two of those lugs are empty but shouldnt be, or are wired wrong. i cant tell you colors of your wires without seeing it, but this is how it should be, with the exception that the tone knob will probably be on the bottom 3 lugs somewhere. 1 would be the neck pickup, 2 the middle, and 3 the bridge hope this helps, feel free to post a pic of your wiring, etc xadioriderx.jpg

My esp ltd ex-50 have a constant buzz unless i touch the volume/tone knob(s), i re soldered the input but it still does it. any ideas?


Make sure the ground wires are soldered to the metal case of the pots. They should have a jumper running between all the metal cases.

Make sure the CONDUCTIVE paint in the cavity that is used for shielding is contacted by the ground conductor at some point.

Also keep the guitar AWAY from teh magnetic fields produced by the amp.

I dont know how to rewire the back of my dean evo xm? i tried to fix the faulty input so i thought the wires were faulty so i tried to rewire it and i dont know where everything goes now. theres red yellow...


It is rare that wires would be faulty. Soldering can be, but not the wires usually.<br /> <br /> Common problems are broken jacks or pots that are broken or shorting to the paint in the cavity.<br /> <br /> If you have things unwired now, the best thing is to find an appropriate circuit here and wire it like that:<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.guitarelectronics.com/c=gpIlkL5hB6ISnsWqCfLePUcJa/category/wiring_resources_guitar_wiring_diagrams/">http://www.guitarelectronics.com/c=gpIlkL5hB6ISnsWqCfLePUcJa/category/wiring_resources_guitar_wiring_diagrams/</a>

When I plug in a hum will start and when I touch the jack an the guitar it stops humming . It's a yamaha acoustic electric.


You have a broken ground either on the jack, the plug or internal in the amp. Check both connections first. I think you will find it. If not open the amp and check for broken wires, cracked solder joints, etc. While checking the connections resolder all connections no matter what they look like. Let me know how you make out.

I have a Yamaha Electric Guitar - AES 800, the guitar technician needs a wiring diagram as the tone controls are not working but it is not the pots as they have been replaced. Where do i get a wiring...


Unable to find a diagram, however, makesure the pots were replaced with identical units as not only does the resistance have to match, but the taper of the resistance MUST match the original ones. There is a letter designator on the pots as part of the part number and this MUST be the same on the replacement.

There is very little to go wrong other than the pots and the capacitors and the switch and of course the pickups.

The AES-820 control system has a user manual at the Yamaha website and that one does NOT have a "tone" control, but instead has controls for the two pickup mix. This is not reaally a tone control as is commonly thought of, but changes the sound in a different way. Not sure if your unit has the 820 system, as that system has two mix pots, a rotary selector, and another switch.

Wiring schematic for YahamaR2X200F fretless bass

this is a seymore duncan wiring diagram. its standard bass wiring, and by the looks of the picture it should be close. luckily, most electrical manufacturers use universal wiring color codes.

Sustain pedal not working on my Yamaha P-90


What I figured out is that when i turn on the keyboard, if i hold down the pedal by accident, it will work in reverse. I dont know if this is what you mean. If it is, just dont touch the pedal when you turn it on. If it isn't, try to return the pedal. I dropped one, it had this problem, and they gave me a new one. Your cord for it might have been bent (?). Also, turn the keyboard on with the pedal already plugged in. It's not made to be plugged in while it's on. Hope this helps. - Matthew
