  • HSS guitar: new Ibanez dyna-MIX9 switching

    Ibanez has come with a new switching system for his Tom Quayle Signature and AZ series

    I'm pretty interested in getting those tones. Is there any easy way to make this wiring? I mean without turning the circuit into spaghetti haha

    - 5-Way Super Switch
    - 3PDT toggle

    Humbucker uses Duncan colors (black to hot, red/white for splitting, green and bare to ground)

    Hot goes to your volume control. GND is ground.

    Pickups don't "take" gain.

      Boom

      I thought it was a schaller megaswitch s due to the top but I wouldn’t know how to do the bottom 5

        You can do that half with just a standard 5-way.

        I've never been a fan of the Megaswitches. They aren't flexible.

        I wonder if the OP is ever going to come back.

          It works in the guitar I have put together.
          I have drawn the complete wiring diagram for those who are interested:

              This is awesome!
              Would you happen to know how you would wire the switching for the HH pickup model?
              I can't find any information on how Ibanez power tap works.

                I've done the first (#1) with a Super Switch. As far as #2 goes, what exactly is a 'power tap'?

                  Looks to be a partially tapped humbucker.

                    Well, that is a pretty cool idea. I'd love to try this system out before I wired that nightmare up, though.

                      Ibanez defines it as "a normal tap but with boosted low end"
                      https://www.notreble.com/buzz/2016/0...d-electronics/

                      My best guess is that's their way of wiring the humbucker in parallel.

                        why not this?

                        https://www.freewayswitch.com/schematics-blade/

                        the 2x5 way blade does just what you want, it solders easily, super sturdy mechanism, and no extra toggle you need to have. I know what I'd want on my HSS guitar.

                          Is that diagram correct? In position 2 the bridge pickup is in parallel still, not in series? If so, is there a way to do everything else the same, but have the bridge in series when the mini switch is in position 2 (series position)?

                            I would like to follow up on this wiring. I really wish to use this one but there is one position I don't find appealing and I wish it could be different. In setting 1, you have the bridge humbucker full. Would it be possible to alter this wiring in such a way that you can have the outer bridge humbucker coil?

                              On the lower left quadrant, reverse the two connections at "out" and #4. (Red arrows.) Be sure to move both red wires that are on #4. Then add a jumper between to the two "5's".
