JS-6 wiring help needed

Hi folks,

I recently decided to re-oil my JS-6, so stripped the hardware out the body. I made a note (as you do) of the wiring, but before wiring everything back up I decided to double check and now I'm in two minds. I can't find a JS-6 diagram online - the closest I've come is one for the 6000 on the Ibanez website (I figure most JS diagrams should be the same). The one I found differs from the way mine was wired - having not owned it from new I can't be sure it's in its original state.

As far as pickup wires are concerned, here's how it was -

Red & Green - Tone
White - switch
Black & metal - switch casing

Black & White - Tone
Red - Switch
Green & metal - switch casing

The one I found online has the red going to switch, black and white together to tone and green and metal together grounded on volume for both pickups.

Could someone with a JS6 out there who is confident of the way it's wired please have a look and let me know the correct way?

Or, I could just tell you that your original notes are correct.
