Replacing Pickups on RG350DX


Hi guys,
I'm trying to replace PU of my RG350DX with DiMarzio Series.
I desoldered the old INF Series, take care of draw down the diagram.

Reading the instruction I know that Red is the hot, Green/Bare is the ground, Black/White wires together and soldered to nowhere.

BRIDGE: - Super Distortion
red goes in 6th contact of the 5-way switch.
black/white goes in 1st contact

NECK: Super 2
red goes in 8th contact of the 5-way switch.
black/white goes in 3rd contact

MIDDLE: Cruiser
red goes in 2nd contact of the 5-way switch.

With amp on I can see that the only positions that works well are the 1st (only Bridge PU) and the 5th (only Neck PU), so the 2 - 3(only Middle) - 4 are dead.

Where I've wrong with the solder?
Do you have any suggestions to help me.

Thousand thanks guys.

I think you might have the red and black/white wires back to front. check out DiMarzios site, they have wiring diagrams that'll help you.

Re: Replacing Pickups on RG350DX


Thanks AlaskaBat I've take a look to the link, it's quite interesting, but I don't have a multipole switch even if I saw that for the mid-PU the white is the hot and red goes together with green... but really I don't understand where solder them 'cos I've a simple 5-way switch.

I'm not able to post url so: takusama.com/wiring/rg350dx/original_diagram.jpg
soon I'll post you what and where I soldered.

Here my replace diagram: takusama.com/wiring/rg350dx/replace_diagram.jpg

I suppose I've wrong the Cruiser HOT connection... What do you think?
Thanks again for your support.
