Re: wiring diagram wrong

what's the point? they probably put a different selector switch in your RG. just don't care, re-wire it as it was before and play it.

Re: wiring diagram wrong

There is 10 different ways to wire something to get the same result, and the result is all that matters.

i agree theres like soo many ways to wire up coil tapping for instance, when i followed the diagram that dimarzio sent me for a jackson project, it was wrong bassed on the dimarzio pots in the diagram were jumped from two poles to the switches which were dimarzio brand, and the other cts brand had the jump tab alread installed on the pish pull part


maybe just leave it, or tear it out and start from scratch with the parts you need with the diagrams you have

Re: wiring diagram wrong

not sure if you knew this but, the 520 switch looks the same as the 470/570 switch but is different inside. I found this out the hard way after wasting an hour soldering. Maybe you have the wrong switch?
