Okay, this will be my last thread for a good while. I promise.

Okay, I decided I'm getting this guitar, a used Ibanez RG470dx with EMGs for 300$, really good condition. I was looking at it, and noticed it had three knobs on it, instead of the two that it's supposed to have stock.



I'm just wondering what it probably is, maybe a pre-amp or something like that?

it could be a lot of different things.. the only way to know for sure is to open it up and check, or ask someone who works there..

could be 2 volumes and a tone, 1 volume and 2 tones, volume for each pickup and no tone, and so on and so on..

try playing it and see what it does, or ask to open it and see how it is wired. That knob could be a variety of things.

The Kerry King EMG set (I think it's the KK set; if not, it's the Zakk Wylde set) has some sort of boost preamp, so that may be part of it.

The KK set gain booster is a toggle, not a knob.

Looks like the original owner could possibly have installed actives and passives running on separate circuits.
