hey guys i have an ibanez rg320fm with dual humbucker setup, recently ive been toying with the idea of swapping for some better pups, the only thing is that the pickup selector on it is strange and instead of 3 way for the dual humbuckers, its a 5 way and splits the humbuckers into singles on certain settings, i reallly really like this feature and was wondering if i were to swap to different pickups would i still retain this feature or would i have to swap out the toggle for a 3 way?

You will be able to keep the split and parallel settings when you change the pickups, but I'd recommend getting a shop to wire them since you have to ask about it. A professional will certainly be able to rewire your pickups exactly as the stock ones.

if it's coil splitting, u would just need to buy pickups with 4-wires (4 wire conductor) so u can wire it up the same way.

A bit trickier, it has split and full positions, plus parallel neck wired onto the same 5-way switch. Basically, best pay a few bucks to get the job done.
