I bought a used Fender 70s Strat neck pickup and put it on my Ibanez. It works but at a very low volume. I assumed that the wires go black to volume and white to switch like the old one.

it only has the two wires, so im not sure. but maybe its somehow out of phase with the other two pickups.
that causes lower volumes.

and yeah the black is ground and white is hot.

what type of ibanez? what type of switch? and other pickups are in there.

If that single coil is vs. ur humbucker then yeah, humbuckers are generally louder. Do you have HSH pickup config? Try raising it higher if possible, but not too high.

If it's a H-S-H config, you're not going to be able to get balanced volume with a regular single coil, especially a vintage one which are made to have reduced output to begin with (magnets lose their strength over time, etc.). But yeah, try switching the wires around like Jenny said, although if it is a H-S-H, polarity of the mid position shouldn't matter.

Ibanez GRG170DX. Switch is a 5-way. Positions 2 3 4 were all VERY quiet. I put the old pup back. Maybe they will work on my Eko strat.
