Introdução

In this guide you will learn how to replace the output jack. Output jack replacement will need to be done if your bass no longer makes sound, the bass only makes sound when the cable is orientated awkwardly or the bass cuts in and out when the cable is moved. Your output jack can break because the delicate metal parts which make contact with the instrument cable have been worn out or bent out of shape. Sadly this Ibanez series bass uses a closed output jack, thus it is impossible to fix, and can only be replaced.

    It would be nice if there was a wiring diagram… The link just says page not found?? I have 2 black wires and 1 white… Why would any company use 2 black wires!???? I pulled the old jack out following your directions then when I put the new jack in I clicked the diagram link and nothing… So I tried about 5 different configurations and still have no sound. At this point I think I might be putting to much heat to the jack, It’s not made to be heated up that many times… I hate this bass, glad it’s not mine! After seeing there color codes and them using so many black wires I would never buy a crappy Ibanez!! I used to think they were decant guitars, but playing well with poor craftsmanship makes them junk to me, It’s like buying a Kia car, Lol. Do you know why there are 2 black wires? And where do they go? I have 2 black, 1 white and one of those piece of crap barrel jacks… Thanks, Mike.
