Re: Another pickup wiring resource thread!
Hey all, first post so take it easy on me lol. I have spent ages reading trying tofind the answer to a problem i have. I know there are various links to follow (which i have) but i still can't find the answer to what i'm looking for.
I have an ibanez prestige rg1527 7 string fitted with v7 and v8 pick ups. I love the pick ups by the way. However, my secong guitar is a 7 string kramer striker. It did have 2 humbuckers fitted on a 3 way selector switch. I purchased another pair of v7 and v8 humbuckers off of ebay for a real cheap price. I figured i'd attempt my fist ever pick up swap. I first realised that i'd need a new 5 way selector switch to. I can'tfigure out how to solder the pick ups to it as it isn't an 8 pin selector that most of the info seems to be on. It is the same style as the old 3 way selector.....but obviously it is a 5 way selector. On the old selector ( and the new selector) it had a total of 7 soldering points. 3 down one side, 1 center and 3 down the other side. I can't fathom out or find anything that explains how to wire it up. The bridge pick up has 2 wires, red white and a bare and the neck pick up has 4 wires, red, white, green and black....and a bare. I just need help in sorting what needs soldering where.
On the old selector switch the red cable from the volume pot was soldered onto the centre soldering point of the sven points and the black cable from the volume pot was soldered to the body of the selector switch....so i'm assuming those 2 just need re soldering as they came off.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
