Help with G10 and Ibanez JEM77P

Recommended Posts

Well I ordered what I thought would work fine from ebay  in allowing me to play an Ibanez JEM77P guitar with the wireless g10 since the G10 does not quite fit properly into the guitar cavity  (here's the link)....  http://www.ebay.com/itm/400667246204?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

 

The item I ordered was a Stereo 6.35mm Female Socket to Male Mono ¼" Guitar 6.35mm Jack Plug Adapter.  The adapter worked but very poorly.  It added for lack of a better word, overdrive on clean sounds, and I believe the volume suffered and was coming in and out.

 

The size and footprint are perfect.  Can anyone recommend a better adapter solution?

 

thanks!

What worked for me is a 1/4" mono to 1/4" mono adapter, which I bought for a similar price to the one you purchased.

Exactly, you just bought the opposite, you need mono to stereo or mono to mono :)

 

But not stereo->whatever, or the unit will think it is charging :)

I found a workaround on the transmitter not fitting into the guitar input. I have a Ibanez S series with the recessed 1/4" plug. I removed the back plate lossened the jack and placed a 1/4" thick by 3/4" diameter rubber washer on the outside of the jack. This gave plenty of room for the G10 transmitter to connect.

Can you post a picture of inside the back plate where you placed the washer? This is genius!

I just loosened the jack and I sliced one end of the rubber washer to where I could slide it over the jack. I then retightened the jack and that's was all. It just pushed the jack end out enough to where the G10 transmitter would fit correctly.

I did the same thing with a couple of #10 rubber o-rings from the plumbing isle at home depot.  It took me longer to remove and replace the back plate than it did to do the fix.  Thanks for the idea.  Genius.  I was really worried about dinging up the wood around the area, and this fix actually gives me clearance.

When you said mono to stereo are you saying 1/4" mono male to 1/4' stereo female?

Thanks @crm3550 and @jmartin1997!! I bought a box of #10 o-rings from the plumbing isle at Home Depot, and followed your steps. It worked perfectly! Here's some reference pics for anyone else wondering.

Will this Danco #10 O-ring 11/16" O.D X 1/2 I.D X 3/32" work on Ibanez SR2605 ?

I'm guessing that input jacks are standard, so my money would be on yes.

Brilliant Idea, thanks for the detailed Pics. I'm going to look at trying that on my JEM77FP.

Absolutely brilliant.

 

I was concerned with this because I wanted to buy an Ibanez 224AZ and I didn't think the G10 transmitter would fit in the guitar. So after seeing your post I went to the shop to try the guitar. We checked it with a Boss WL transmitter that didn't fit either.

 

I got the guitar, bought some rings and... Perfect. I can't figure a better solution. I just needed one ring (maybe I'll put one more).

 

It works with both G10 and WL.

 

Thank you very much!
