I have the same question but more detailed.
I have DiMarzio's Gravity Storm
Neck + Evolution
Bridge hums on my Ibanez JEM and now I'm curious about how it will sound with one of the DiMarzio's Area
hum canceling single pickups for my middle.
On DiMarzio's web page there are two wiring diagrams which have "Area
" in their names :
"2 Humbucker, 1 Area Single
in Split Mode, 5-Way, 1 Volume, 1 Tone; Neck, Neck Split & Middle, Middle, Bridge Split & Middle, Bridge"
"Jem 20th Anniversary Wiring, 2 Humbucker, 1 Area Single
, Ibanez 5-Way, 1 Volume, 1 Tone; Neck, (Neck & Middle) Split, Middle, (Bridge & Middle) Split, Bridge"
sorry, this forum doesn't allow newcomers to post links and pictures):
...so I wonder if these are the ones I should follow?
I'm thinking of trying the single DiMarzio Area 67
On your diagram there are three pots, right? So did you drilled you RG and put an extra Tone pot for it to work?
Also was there any benefit for you to use the hum canceling Area 61?
From what I understand you recommend the neck Injector
to be used as a middle, right?
Do you believe the 61 was too bright for Vai type of sound or your personal taste?
Any sound samples with any of the configurations you mentioned?
