87/88 540s Wiring, Very confusing
Ok, first, I have looked for probably no less than 12 hours total for the solution to my problem. Found many answers, but mine seems to have a slight hiccup.
The guitar is a early 1988 540S, original everything. It has the three toggles, with the bridge toggle being on/off/on. Every wiring diagram I have seen, including the one I got from Ibanez.com shows the bridge humbucker with white, black, red, green and bare wires. This is where it gets strange. The IBZ/USA humbucker doesn't have the red lead. I have stripped the wire back to see if it might have been buried, but no red lead. Everything I have seen says this should be an IBZ F2, but being early model (made in Jan and number 84 of the year) I have read that Ibanez used an early model IBZ/USA that didn't have an actual designation to it.
So, which wires would be what leads from the humbucker in this situation?
Thank you in advance for any help in this. I haven't been able to play this wonderful guitar since I bought it through an amp. It has been sitting on my bench for almost 6 months waiting to breath again.
