I fitted my breed and Pro track today and came across something weird.
1) It seemed that the original brigde was wired wrong as red and black were crossed in reference to the diagram dimarzio sent me (which is the same wiring as Ibanezís original bridge pup according to Their diagram above). So Red was connected to the 5 way switch and black to bare. At first I figured Id go with that since thatís how the guitar came. Only when I hooked her up the breed kinda sounded like a singelcoil so I reversed black and red, the way it is in the diagram and that seemed to do the trick. Does this mean that the stock pup had always been wired wrong or is it common for colors to differ from ibz and dimarzio pups? Or do IBZ tech just srew around with FGM400's since I read somewhere esle that Fizzy had push pull reversed.
2) Underneath the stock neck pup was a sort of ground wire screwed into the body (making contact to the bottom of the pup) and soldered to the tone pot. Since the DP188 magnet is a hell of lot bigger than the stock I had to ditch the underlying screw (and thus disconnecting it) in order to make it fit. I recon the black wire from the DP188 would replace this since black, green, white Šnd bare are all going in the same direction. I this a correct assumption?
And why have 4 wires (2 more that the stock pup) and 1 bare and then have 3 of em go togher? Who needs 4 wires when you dont use em.
Three, it all seems to work if I just follow Dimarzios diagram and I cant wait to hook upto my Marshall. The breed seems pretty agressive even thru my pocket pod
