Never mid, I just checked Ibanez's website and they have a wiring diagram for what I want on my guitar. I feel silly now...
Can you tell me how this diagram relates to my new pups which have more wires? ie. the diagram shows white and red while my pups have red white black and green. As far as I know, the green soldered to the ground and the black and white are soldered together. Does this mean that I can solder the black and white to where the white goes on the diagram and the red to where the red goes?
Sorry for the late reply. My problem is that the blank connection on my 5 way selector isn't the same as the blank connection as in the diagram and it's not just the opposite way around. It's like the third or fourth one in I think. I've looked at a few different diagrams and each had a different blank connection.
I just want to replace my stock bridge and neck pups with my new dimarzio pups. They're both humbuckers with 4 wires each and a bare ground. I'm leaving the stock middle single coil in as I can't afford a new one just yet. I want them in the general Bridge, Bridge and Middle, Middle, Middle and Neck, Neck 5 way selections.
Just noticed I set the tremolo on upside-down in the pics, whoops. Also note the bridge pickup is broken at the baseplate and the windings are starting to come undone. I will eventually be purchasing a replacement, have seen them on eBay for between 10 and 50 bucks.
Cool, this should work then. One other difference is the potentiometer values, the diagram shows two 500k pots whereas mine are marked B-50k ohms for the volume and B-100k ohms for the tone, with a .047 capacitor. Is it safe to assume this will also affect just the sound and not the effectiveness of the circuit?
Hard for me to say exactly how the switches were wired originally, as a few of the solder joints had come undone before I popped the hood, but it looked like the black wires off the pickups went to the center posts on the switches. one of the pickups had the blue and black leads soldered together at the center post of one switch. It didn't look right to me, so I unsoldered everything except for the output jack. Would single coils have the ability to be coil tapped? Could the red and blue pickup leads be polarity? North and south?
Hey guys, I am just starting on my latest project, a 1966 Domino Californian (made in Japan by Teisco). Looks like a Vox Phantom. Anyway, it needs re-wired (looks like somebody tried to do the job once a long time ago, many wires are poorly soldered and/or disconnected). It has 2 single coil pickups, 3 SPDT slider switches, and master volume and tone controls (one of each). 2 of the switches are on/off for each of the pickups, one has a second capacitor wired to it. The one with the capacitor is broken, and I have removed it. The pickups have 3 leads: one red, one blue, and one black. The blue lead on each pickup is slightly heavier gauge wire than the other 2. I would like to wire the guitar as simply as possible while keeping most of the original components, including the 2 remaining slider switches. I am having some difficulty coming up with a diagram, largely due to the pickups having 3 leads rather than 2 like on a Telecaster, and the 2 SPDT switches in place of a 3-way toggle or blade. Can anyone help me adapt a standard Tele diagram (minus the treble bleed that some have on the volume pot)?
Coldsweat Neck, Holydiver Neck, Triolgy Suite middle for a HSH Ibanez JEM (Basswood) ?
Anyone have experience with the Seymour Duncan Sh-2n?? Planning to put one in the neck of a basswood Ibanez RG.
I heard that it sounds great even for rock/metal and lead tones. Can anyone confirm this??
I've got a mahogany bodied Ibanez RG321MH, and while I love it, the stock INF pickups arent even useful to throw at people. Its being played through a Peavey 6505+ 112, and the guitar stays in drop c all the time. I want something to replace the god awful INF pickups, but im stuck on what to go for. I want a much higher gain sound that doesnt reduce clarity for the bridge, and something in the neck thats capable of a nice cleaner tone with warmth, and heres the kicker, I dont want active pickups :p So far (from my little knowledge of pickups) I've narrowed it down to:
Dimarzio: X2N (B) Air Norton (N) or Crunchlab (B) Liquifire (N)
BKP: Aftermaths, Coldsweats or Painkillers
Im open to other options as well, so feel free to suggest anything that doesnt use active pickups. Thanks
i am going to be swapping pickups in my Gibson LP studio (mahogany top, chambered). i am looking for higher output in the bridge, prefer a darker tone to a brighter tone. neck has to be syrupy and silky on high OD. the bridge has to be nasty.
i have heard a ton of good things about BKP, especially the nailbomb and the painkillers.
-they are $150 a pop which isn't a problem, if they are the best for me i have no problem forking $300 out on a pair of BKP's.
i have also liked BG pickups a lot and have spoken with him in the past, and he (and AM) thought the hellabucker would be the way to go. i dont think i have ever heard of anybody not liking a BG.
-its like $70 or so and like the potential is great.
-i am sure he probably has a wait.
what would you recommend between the two companies?
what neck pickups would you recommend to pair with the bridge pickups?
its in sig, i play metalish stuff and blues mainly, i have two splawns, PM and Nitro, which are my main rig. play mostly my Dual terror around the home and throughout the night.
i posted this on the 21st of december and am reposting it, as mine was completely not answered. if this is against the rules, let me know.
How would Gibson p-94 pups be like in the bridge position on a strat? Would be used for southern rock blues rock garage rock grunge etc
Hey, thanks man! That's a messy wiring, but whatever, challenge accepted.
Btw, for the middle pickup tone, I just solder the wire, which goes from the middle pot to the 5-way switch, to the position where the red wire of the middle pickup is soldered, right?
im putting a dimarzio x2n in the bridge position of my ibanez s570b (HSH), but i seem to have messed something up in the wiring. here's a diagram of the exact original wiring, more or less http://www.ibanez.com/support/wiringdiagrams (if it doesnt load, Guitar, 1998, S470 and it should come up). I've got the black and white soldered together, ground to ground on the volume pot, red on the 8th tab on the switch and green on the third (and i've tried swapping them around and such). i'm getting incredibly low volume out of the pickup (considering its the highest output passive pup im aware of). is it something i've done wrong, or is there some other cause?
I need help. I am wiring my Tele to have:
-Stock neck pickup
-Seymour Duncan Hot Rails in the bridge (4-conductor)
-Volume pot - split coil push-pull (bridge 500K)
-Tone pot - Blower switch ( http://www.lonephantom.com/2011/01/suhr-style-blower-switch-pickup-modification/ ) push-pull 500K
-4-way switch mod
I have NO IDEA what to do.
Now that all 3 pickups can be split together. I'd want to have a push/pull volume - to split all 3, neck tone - for neck and middle pickups, and furthest knob - as a bridge tone as well as 'bridge on' switch. Yes, and a killswitch.
Thanks man for your help.
So, I have an Epi Les Paul, and was wondering if it'd be possible to wire it so the middle position works like the wiring on a Jazz bass, so it's just both pickups being sent together.
Currently I can't turn the volume really low on the bridge pickup for a bit of brightness while the Neck pickup is on full, it just makes very little sound, was wondering if I could make it work more like fading in the pickups.
Or is there just something wrong with the wiring, and it's supposed to do that?
I'm not sure, I saw one at Seymour Duncan's site.
Btw, I tried the coil splits on a friend's les paul, and liked it. But I'm not sure if it would sound good on a strat.
I guess I'll do a master volume, a push/pull tone to activate the neck pickup to do the neck-bridge / all 3 combos and a push/pull tone cum coil split knob for the middle and bridge pickups.
Any other recommendations are welcomed!! I could always used some expert guidance!
And I would love to have a diagram to make things easier. Thanks.
Hey, I have a bullet strat mic 08 and want to upgrade it with gfs lil killers. So, I want to include a push/pull volume pot for coil splitting all pickups, one tone for neck and middle, and the second tone (close to the jack) as a push/pull for the bridge tone plus using it as a switch for neck-bridge/ all 3 pickups combo, and a killswitch somewhere in the pickguard. I tried google, and I got wiring diagrams for coil splitting and the bridge switch. But, what if I wanna do both? And also is it worth doing the coil splits in lil killers?
Hi guys, I need a bit of help. I went to put in my two new Dimarzio pickups, Evolution in the bridge position and paf pro in the neck position. These are replacing the INF3 AND INF4 that came stock in my Ibanez RG370DX.
I began by using this wiring diagram but the blank connection on the selector in the diagram isn't the same as the selector in my guitar.
It's a five way selector.
Hello everyone, I want to install 2 humbuckes in a strato guitar of mine.
I already searched in seymour duncan site, but it doesn't have 2 humbuckers on strato there.
Does anyone happen to have a schematic ? The humbuckers are passive and there is a ground bridge.
I have two volumes and two tones. And the switch is a 5 way. I can buy another switch I guess if this one doesn't work for 2 pickups.
Any schematic will help, like one volume and one tone, etc...
Hi, i have a problem. firstly one of the wires on my jack has come slightly loose, it's still attatched, but there are some threads of the wire which have come unsoldered. the second problem, which i want to know if it's related or if it's two different fixes, is that i have a hum in my guitar which when ever i touch the strings/bridge/knobs on my guitar it goes away, but with nothing being touched i get a really quite audible hum. can you help?
how would you wire a gibson sg with a motherbucker in the bridge? Can it be done without changing the pickup selector/pots? The neck pickup will be a humbucker as well. I want to keep the 2 volume and 2 tones. All of the diagrams i found are for 1 volume 1 tone.
