Changing Pots on ObG

I'm considering changing out the pickups on my 92 ObG standard (Terada) and thought about installing one of the RS Guitarworks wiring kits while I was doing this. Anyone done this with an ObG standard? Did you have to enlarge holes for the shafts? Anyone know whether pots are US made? Pots read M500...

inlay source

I've got an inlay problem with this black Terada ObG. For those of you in the US, do you know of a good source for single inlays or sets? Thanks!

Pots on mine just have "M500K ohmsymbol A" and 71 K below that. Maybe the 8 at the start of my serial number means 1988?

Center seam in the laminated top, the back looks like it's 3 pieces. No heel cap that I can see. I'd be suprised if this were a nineties guitar given the yellowing of the plastic (switch knob, fret binding, top binding), fretware, and tarnish on all the metal parts, gold lettering is gone from the s...

That "model" script is what originally made me think 1983 based on what I was reading at http://www.japanguitars.co.uk/burny%20info.html. The "l" in my model is exactly between the center of the G and D tuners. That page also indicates grey wires on the RLG 50 and 60 appeared in the 1982 catalog. An...

Could easily be a laminate or photo flame, I'm definitely not an expert with tops. For the year, I was going by the headstock (logo location, truss rod cover) and the info/link on Mark's japanguitars site. I can't discern any layers in the top, looks to be about 1/2" solid, how thick would a laminat...

Help ID my older Super Grade: odd serial number content

I've got what I assume is a 1982 or 1983 Super Grade RLG 90, could be an RLG 120 or 150 I suppose because it's got a solid top and fret binding, but the finish is poly. Anyhow, I wondered if anyone had ever encountered this type of serial number (6 digits starting with 82) and if anyone could tell w...
