  • HELP with wiring diagram real quick

    Im about to install my pickups, but I am confused with this wiring diagram.
    It is for my current wiring, which i will keep the same (2 Hbuckers, 5 way switch) on an Ibanez rgt42.

    The stock pups are dimarzio designed, i believe. however, the wires are are kind of weird...they are blue, white, black, and red.
    so basically i need to convert this to the duncan colors.

    ill post a link to the diagram as soon as i can, but the damn ibanez website is down right now. http://www.ibanez.com/wiring

    anyone have experience with this or know what is what?

    If thats the guitar I think it is, its just got one volume, and one tone.

    So just use this diagram:

    2hum_vol_tone_5way-w-split

      you're right, it does have 1 vol, 1 tone. the only difference is that the 5way switch is different...it lets you do coil splitting

      i will post the diagram as soon as the ibanez website starts working.

          Are you sure they are not red, black (or white) [north coil], blue, and yellow
          [south coil] ?
          The info that I have shows those colours, corresponding to the dmz colours of red, black [north coil ], white, and green[ south coil]; which corresponds to the SD colour code of black, white [ north coil ], red, green [south coil].

            Hey j33; not sure how you mean that. The diagram I linked to does do coil-splitting.
            Do you mean, that you don't want coil-splitting?

              they are definitely red, white , black, and blue.

              artie: the diagram is good except my 5way switch is different...all of the poles are on one side. it's got like 8 poles in a row, so i'm not sure how to compare it to the one in the diagram

              god damn ibanez website better start working so i can put my pups in
              if worst comes to worst, i can try and get someone to scan the diagram that i printed out

                    It's got that SC-5 switch (or variation of it) it's an odd ball switch; I don't think the contacts move the way you think they would ... I gotta check on those power sounds as they weren't what I had listed ... you are putting in sd pups right? Best I can do is to try to have something for you this evening, try to hang tight .

                          I was just looking at the other wiring diagrams for the ibanez website, and I'm starting to think that maybe the equivalents for dimarzios and my stock pups are as follows ( i was looking at a js2000 for comparizon(http://www.ibanez.com/wiring/wire.asp?y=2002&w=JS2000)... i still need the duncan equivalents though. can i contact duncann and ask them?

                          $hit pups_____Dimarzio Equiv??_______Duncan Equiv??

                            Nah, I think I got it figured out (see attachment I'm sending to your PM ), this is assuming that they IBZ schematic is correct ... that switch is NOT and normal inline 2 pole 5 way ...FYI ... You'll have to reverse the magnet on the neck pup to get the pole screw poles pointed the correct way ... no big deal.
                            Check your PM.

                              I just realized that you can't send attachments via PM ...
                              And the GIF is to big for the forum, PM me with an e-mail address if you want me to send you the attachment.
                              Other wise, It breaks down like this :
                              IBZ ......... SD .......... DMZ
                              Red ........ Black ...... Red
                              Black ...... White ..... Black
                              White ..... Red ........ White
                              Blue ....... Green ..... Green
                              Again, you will have to reverse the magnet on the neck pup, to get the correct magnetic polarity per the correct coil/pole piece type ... Everything else should go just as wired at the factory.
                              ...
