Hi all,
Some time ago, I bought an RS-X70.
Great guitar, but the electonics has been disconnected by
the previously owner. (He only used 1 PU + Volume).
I have the circuit board + the switch for booster OFF/1/2,
and I can buy the pots/switches.
But I need to know how this should be wired.

The best thing, would be the schematics, of course,
but some pictures should also help me.

So, if someone would be so kind to provide some pictures on the inside of
the controll cavity, I would be very happy :D

Thanks for any help.

Regards,
Morten.

Hello there !

I'm new on this forum and I was searching some information about the wiring of the Aria pro II rsx.
A friend of mine gave me one but not in functionnal order because there are some wire that are disconnected.
As this guitar have really a lot of cables inside, I have too many configurations to test.

So if I can find a wiring guide or some photos of the inside of this guitar, It would help me so much !!!
Okaspar have putted some here in 2006 but we can't see them anymore.
Do these photos still exist ?
I need them so much !

If not, my problem is that :
It seems that they are 4 wire disconnected from the Boost switch.
This switch :

The 4 missing wires (I have added some little wires to the metal legs to make some try of connection easier) :
Image
Details :

And so the 4 wires :
A black from the electrical ground of the booster volume control :
Image
A orange from the Master Volume control :
Image
A pink from the electronical circuit card :
Image
And a red from pickups switch selector :
Image

All of that give me all these possibilities :
Image
:toopid:

There is also this one from the ground of the Master Volume control that seems to be connectd to nothing :
Image
Is it normal ?

So can someone could help me !?
:)

Thank you !

Thank you very much !
That works now !

BUT, an other question.
Does someone knows where can I find the bridge piece for this model ?
This piece :

the original was missing.
Perhaps an equivalent that can be adapted on the aria pro is also ok if the original is not findable ?

Thanks

Do you need the whole bridge or just a saddle?

You can try if a Schaller Roller Bridge... it fits other Aria guitars with the same bridge (e.g. PE-R80...)... but not sure for the RS, because the bridge on your guitar is recessed.
