Even Google couldn't help me here, I doubt if the searchbar can

Ibanez H S H configuration: D Sonic - stock middle - Air Norton

I want to get rid of the stock middle, and wire it as follows:

1) Bridge full
2) Bridge split
3) Bridge split+neck split
4) Neck split
5) Neck full

My pickup switch is the stock Ibanez switch, that just says "5P" on it, nothing else.
Can someone hook me up with a wiring diagram for this?

Cheers!

My pups are Dimarzios man, and the diagrams on the Dimarzio site use the Dimarzio switch, not the stock Ibanez "5P" one.

Wrapping my head around this one, hold on.

EDIT: and the "5p" stands for five pole, or five position. It will be fine as long as you need a five position switch.

EDIT 2.0: Double pole my bad. But yes, the switch is ok, and regardless of whether they're dimarzio or not, seymour duncan wiring diagrams will still work. Not looking at the pickups, just how they're wired.

I see, but there is ANOTHER switch that looks IDENTICAL to mine, and thinking they were the same, I tried to wire it that way(according to the diagram that uses that switch) and it got all f'ed up. That switch had the the number 2502N written on it.

So how can I do what I want to with the 5P?

I'm working on a solution as we speak

That wiring isn't possible with a standard 5 way. You need a Super Switch to do that.
A better option would be to have positions 2 and 4 with the bridge and neck pickups in parallel with themselves, rather than split. IMO that gives you a better single coilish tone and it cancels hum. I've got a diagram for that if you want it.

littlephil, hit me.


But, wouldn't that make the middle position a no-sound position?

Yea, even with two poles, you don't have enough space switch wise. The super switch, if i remember, has four or three poles, as opposed to the standard two of the stock switch you have.

No, it'd be;
1- Bridge in series (normal humbucker)
2- Bridge in parallel
3- Bridge and neck split
4- Neck in parallel
5- Neck in series

Here's the diagram. Its using Seymour Duncan colour codes, so you'll need to convert the colours for your Dimarzio's


EDIT: For the SD to Dimarzio colours;
SD Black = Dimarzio Red
SD White = Dimarzio Black
SD Red = Dimarzio White
The green wire stays the same.

Yeah conversion is no big deal, but this circuit uses the superswitch too?
