Very old V7 and V8


Hey all,

I tried searching for what I'm about to ask and couldn't find anything about it. My apologies if it actually has been covered.

Anyway, I had a V7 and V8 pickup in a parts box. I'm just messing around and trying to get better at wiring. This is just practice.

Both pickups only have 3 wires. The colors are white, black, and bare.



How would I incorporate the white, black, and bare wires into this diagram? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Andrew

This is what I found from an Ibanez diagram for a 2005 RG1570:

Bare=ground
Black=hot
White=used for coil splitting

More knowledgeable peeps, please correct this if I'm wrong.

My RT650 had the same 3-wire V7/V8's with red/white/bare and the white wire on that was for coil splitting.

Re: Very old V7 and V8


Thanks guys. Although, I just wired it up and it's not working at all. This is how I have it.

Black - Hot

Bare - Ground

White - taped off.

Not even an interference buzz is happening once it's plugged in.

Re: Very old V7 and V8


What's your setup like? i.e. volume/tone pots, type of switch, etc.

It's exactly like the diagram. 2 humbuckers. V7 and V8. 1 CTS 500K volume pot, 3 way LP style Switchcraft, and input jack.

This is just a hunch, but try grounding the white wires. I'm thinking that just having them taped off is interrupting the circuit path of the pickup.

Re: Very old V7 and V8


Hmmm...I tried that. I wonder if maybe the pot is bad...

I'm a noob and it's pretty obvious. But is it possible to burn out a pot with too much contact with a soldering iron?

Try swapping the black and white wire around.
