I recently purchased a Jackson DKMG with all of the wires gutted out. I need a wiring diagram. I can find diagrams that inlude strat style and les paul style switches all day, but I cant find a diagram that has a 3-way blade style switch (terminals are NOT offset like strat switches)

the guitar comes with 2 EMG hz's, 1 volume, 1 tone and 1 EMG afterburner. And of course the 3-way blade switch (blade stye without offset terminals)

and sorry for the double-post. I realized that this would probably be the better catagory for my issue

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my eyes...they...are flowin out

thanks for trying takachan but that isn't my setup. If you look at the last picture in this link http://guitarprojects.weebly.com/emg-afterburner.html that is my setup except i have a different selector switch, mine is the kind with 8 poles all in a straight line (the ones that come in most ibanez guitars) and I have EMG hz's which have 5 wires coming from them

You just made this thread in the Electric guitar section.

Did you even try emailing EMG? They might, y'know, have a diagram for their own parts.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

yeah i realized i posted in the wrong thread...and all of emg's diagrams either don't include the switch i'm using or they're for solder less setups.

Here is the wiring diagram that I copied from my own Jackson DKMG with Afterburner & EMG-HZ's. https://www.circuitlab.com/user/ShockFart/

Dude, its not hard, ALL selector switches have a ground, and it should be obvious which contact the ground is, it is usually by itslef/opposite side from the hot wire contact for the pups. then you just try each of the other contacts with the hot wire from the bridge with the selector in the bridge position, once you hear sound through the pup you know which contact is for the bridge pup, and that should logically tell you which is for the bridge pup, but some peolpe are enemies of logic, if you are, then just repeat the same thing you did for the bridge pup, but then a gain if your mind isn't logically sound you will probably ask me to re phrase this post xD


basically if you would have just taken the 5 mins to use the process of elimination you would realize just how hard it is to NOT insult someone that asks this question....not that i want to insult you, its just that the question you askes had SUCH a simple answer it made me literally Facepalm

damn bro cut a noob some slack lol, at least I'm trying to learn this stuff sorry I threw your day off with unnecessary face-palming, and yes I realized how damn easy it is once I started to experiment a little.
