JS-1/ JS-1000 Wiring

Does anyone have, or know of a good clear wiring diagram of how the
JS guitars are supposed to be wired?

I just picked up an Inferno Red JS-1 and a brand spanking new Black
Pearl JS-1000, and when I jammed out on them it was so obvious that
one was different, even my girlfriend noticed!

I did the old tapping on the pick-up coils with an allen wrench trick to see
what the switch and coil taps are doing, and the red and the black are
definitly setup completely different.

I would just rewire the red to be like the black, but looking at the wiring,
it seems like it's different somehow then I remember my Donnie being.
So maybe they changed the wiring a bit?

Any help, photos, or diagrams would be greatly apprecaited.
I'll probably be asking more technical questions later when I get a chance
to take the JS-1 apart more and read what the pickups say on the back.

Thanx Eddie,

Looks different then what I have here. I wonder if both the guitars have
been modified.

And I wonder if the pre '94 JS guitars were wired differently still....

Anyone care to crack open a Pre 94 Donnie and see if it's different?
I'm thinking the cap that was in mine was different looking at the
