Ok so im plannin to replace the tremolo in my Jackson PS4, with a Schaller or OFR...but im wonderin while im at it should i replace all the ****ty electronics, ie. pots, switches, input jack...i get a fuzz when im not touching a piece of metal so i think it'd be a good idea? whatcha think?

also overall is it worth fixing up the guitar? its got a quilted maple top and alder body, rosewood fingerboard...or should i save and get like an epiphone or somethin

hmm...good point, also can i re inlay it? its got the white dots on the top of the part, not the mid like most guitars...can i somehow get those out and hand route new ones, like u no make a block inlay or somethin...i can do small scale wood working fairly well

u can re inlay it as long as the new inlays go over the old inlays that u take out. so block inlays will work.

and the buzzing problem is caused by improperly grounded electronics. is the control cavity shielded? if not, buy some copper shielding tape and line the entire cavity with it.

good luck

see the copper shielding? just stick that around the cavity. just buy a roll of that tape from stew mac or sumthing. pretty cheap.
