I have an Ibanez Acoustic Electric 5AEQ45F. The top part of the pick up became disconnected. One wire, a white one with a female connection, became disconnected and I cannot find where to reconnect. Please help? :)

    I looked all over the internet for a diagram, to no avail. Thank you for your answer. No wonder I couldn't find where it went lol :)

    After your post and trying to fix my guitar, I realized the pick up that looks like a wire under the fret board was not what I was referring to. There is a white cord off the top of the hardware cover that the pick up plugs into. Where does that cord go?

Realize that there is a white pickup that looks like a wire that ITSELF is the pickup which goes under the bridge. It works like a capacitive mic. One end will be unconnected. This lays in the groove under the bridge.

    I have spent an hour looking for an exact schematic without success... here is a link to a site that has many that one can compare the resources of pickups, pots, etc and maybe get a clue to the connections. DO NOT count on wire colors... they vary:

My Ibanez acoustic electric has very weak volume and makes a constant white noise hiss when plugged into an amp or sound system. Batteries are new as is the pre-amp and under saddle piezo. Ideas?

It will be either the saddle pickup or the guitar pre amp. If you unplug the pickup and the hiss is gone, there was your fault. Otherwise fit a known good pre amp.

Ibanez Pre amp problem

It sounds like the guitar pickup may be faulty. It may be a loose connection on the which could be soldered easily or it may be damaged in some other way.

As this is isolated with your G string, I suspect the individual pickup unit is at fault.

When i plug in to an amp i have no output

Check you battery and/or connections. You need to know in particular if the pickup wire is intact, and going to the volume/tone preamp. There would also be another wire going from the preamp to the plugin socket. If it uses a battery, check the power connections there. I hope this helps

Many try to use poor quality guitar cables and have the problem. The sleeve of the guitar cable plug turns on the battery in the guitar. Always loop the guitar cable through your belt or the guitar strap to avoid the cable wisting the plug in the guitar causing noise and WEAR that wears the plug sleeve to the point it no longer will activate the guitar.

Hi, My Ibanez AEL 20 has a preamp - tuner 5AEQ45F. Tuner works but there is no signal in output jack. Guitar is quite new, and the preamp hasn't been used before. Can I get a PCB schematic diagram...

Remember that while in tuner mode, the audio output is disabled. Try additional presses of the tuner button to see if the audio comes back on. Also verify the volume and EQ gains are turned up. Verify the battery is new.
