    Default 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.

    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.

    Welcome to the forum!

    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"

    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".

    THANKS! Looks/sounds like a plan.

    One final question.

    I want individual volume/tone controls; 1 set for the bridge and 1 set for the neck/middle combination.

    Can that be done? I do have a few 500K dual gang pots laying around, if that helps.

    The thing is, I've got this crazy notion that I want this in an HSS LP as well as an HH LP where I use the two coils of the neck humbucker as if it's two singlecoils. four pots, 1 push pull, 5 way blade and we're off. And yes, I have a 500K 4 pole pushpull pot

    BUMP.

    Is it possible to have this wiring with volumepots for mid+neck and bridge?

    That would be really difficult, if not impossible, because the neck/middle are sometimes in series. That complicates things. Maybe one of the younger guru's will chime in.

    why wouldn't it work if I run each hot signal from mid and neck through a pot first? I'm not seeing why that can't work but then again, I'm not that much of a wiring buff. I can think up crazy stuff but can't design it haha
