I haven't had chance to draw a diagram yet, but just to update: I tried doing as Gibson said and taped up green and white. I soldered black and braided to the back of the volume pot and red to the...

I'll give it a go. It may be more of an actual diagram than a proper wiring diagram, if that makes sense!

Yes and yes. To a degree :)

The old pup was wired both to the switch and to the pot in the same way. That made it look like the new one would have to also be wired to both.

Ha, I am both annoyed and amused with it.

I have downloaded a Gibson wiring diagram. Never again will I assume. It says for standard humbucking (i.e. not coil tapping etc.)

It's a bit confusing because the stock pup had the same colours as the Gibson aftermarket on that chart. Same number of wires.

Soldered in a pickup, doesn't work!

OK so I bought a Gibson Dirty Fingers humbucker and decided to put it in my Ibanez SZ520. Was a bit of a fiddly job, but I have soldered all the same colour wires to the same places as the matching...

Oh yeah I know, but the spacing between the top and bottom E is the same as a trem equipped f-spaced guitar with this, that's what's got me thinking this.

Ibanez SZ520 - Do I have to use an F-spaced bridge pup?

Hi all, I've had my eye on some Iron Gear pups for this guitar but they don't seem to do f-spaced stuff. It seems this guitar should have an f-spaced in the bridge so will it be detrimental to use a...

Silly question, but is the guitar knob on the top of the unit turned up?

Have you gone into your recording program and set up an audio bus for Mono input and told it to use Fast track line in 1/2?

Do you feel like your music is pointless and means nothing?

I mean, you write songs and what not, but you just play them to yourself. Nobody hears them. You're not in a band. Your guitar playing is going nowhere.
