RG 760 wiring Seymour plus dimarzio

I have an 88 rg760 which has a dimarzio chopper in the neck position. I added a Seymour duncan distortion in the bridge position but the sound is less than stellar. I think the seymour might be wired out of phase. Not sure. Heres a diagram of the 5 way selector. Does this look right? The grren and bare wire from the seymour go to ground on the pot.

Fortunately. your Duncan is wired correctly. You could pull the red and white off of the last lug and tape them up (leaving them hanging). This may fatten the sound a bit, but you'll lose the capability of splitting it with the other pups.

Not knowing if your using the original switch or not, I'll add that the VLX-53 switch that came in your guitar may be damaged internally if it's been overheated anytime throughout the years. You should inspect it to be sure it's working properly.

Re: RG 760 wiring Seymour plus dimarzio

Turns out the ground from the trem claw broke off at pot and I was getting a ground hum as a result. I also removed the red and white wires as Im not interested in spilitting the bridge pup coil. Maybe the neck pickup though. The chopper i have in the neck pos is dynamite. Might sound cool split. Problem solved. I cant believe the output of this duncan distortion pup. Blazing!
