Need help wiring two Dimarzio humbuckers


I want to wire my RG for two humbuckers DP151 (PAF Pro) bridge and DP156 (Humbucker From Hell) Neck.

I have a 5 way switch with 8 connections, 1 volume, 1 tone

I want my switch to have the following options:

Bridge Humbucker
Bridge Single Coil
Bridge&Neck Single Coil
Neck Single Coil
Neck Humbucker

Now, i understand that there is something called parallel and series and
that the humbucker can act as a single coil but not tapped...
I don't understand all of this mess, i just want Humbucker option as Humbucker and single coil as true single coil (splitted humbucker).

This is the closest i found from the stickies:
http://www.seymourduncan.com/support...ic=2h_1v__5wss

The problem is that my 5 way switch has only 8 connections and
that there is no tone knob in the diagram and also i don't know if
in this diagram single coil means true single coil and if humbucker is
what it should be (i don't understand that parallel series thing).

Long story short, i need help.
Happy Rockin' New Year!
Roi.

What model RG do you have? What markings are on the switch? Have you looked at the diagrams on dimarzio's site?

RG550EX, The guitar pickguard is closed right now so i don't know which
markings you are talking about. It's the factory 5 switch.

The factory setting for this guitar is HSH but i just ordered a pickguard
for only to humbuckers so i need to change all the wiring.

I went through every link in the stickies, nothing suites my needs,
which are not weird or anything, just humbucker/single or both singles, that's it.

Re: Need help wiring two Dimarzio humbuckers


These are the two closest diagrams I could find based on what you want.
http://www.dimarzio.com/sites/defaul.../rg320mod1.pdf
http://www.dimarzio.com/sites/defaul.../RG520-DiM.pdf

The difference being on one of them position 4 uses the inner coils and the other uses the neckside coils.

Otherwise you'll probably need a push/pull switch or toggle to have just the bridge split or just the neck split. Hopefully somebody more experienced will chime in here.

You'll also need a different switch to accomplish your goal. The YM50 switch in your 550 can't do it. You need the SC2502 switch used on the RG520 to get what you want.
