Ibanez 3-wire humbucker wiring problem

Hello guys, I'm about to replace the stock pup with a Dimarzio bridge pick-up on my Ibanez GRG170DX but I can't figure out how to cut and solder these wires alltogether, 3 wires vs 4 wires (as I have done successfully on my previous guitars with 4-wire humbucker set-up) ...



Can anybody help me please? Thank you very much!

Here is a link to a wiring diagram...

Does yours have those pickups and wire colors?

It's just RED + WHITE + BLACK

Black connected to volume
Red + white connected to the 5 way lever separately

Trying to figure out how to merge these wires in a DiMarzio

It's really simple. Go to the DiMarzio web site, and look up the Ibanez H-S-H wiring diagram. Just wire in your new bridge pickup according to the wiring for the DiMarzio bridge humbucker.

This is your lucky day... wire in your bridge pickup like the one in the diagram:

http://www.dimarzio.com/sites/defaul...GRG170mod1.pdf

Basically the Dimarzio green goes where your white wire goes, the Dimarzio blk & wht get tied together and go where your red wire goes, and the red & shield both go to ground on the volume pot.
