DiMarzio Evolutions with True Velvet middle-wiring

I recently got a '93. MIJ RG470 in mint condition so I wanted t upgrade the PUPS with Evolutions and put the True Velvet in the middle position, now there is quite a number of wiring diagrams online and S.Duncan's and DiMarzio's seem to be different. I got this one for Evolutons, can anyone say is it good? If it is, I'll go with it, thanks!

Re: DiMarzio Evolutions with True Velvet middle-wiring

What do you want the switching to do? That is the first question...

I like to split the Humbuckers with the middle SC in position 2 and 4 like this:

Do some looking around on the Dimarzio site's wiring diagrams, it doesn't have to be your specific model, just look for HSH wiring with 1V, 1T, and a regular 5 way...

Edit: Looks like your diagram is doing the same thing splitting the HB's with the SC in 2 and 4

Yep, looks like a good diagram to me.
That's how mine is wired. Only I am using a fender strat 5 position switch.

Hey Swirltop,
yes, exactly, the normal 5-way switching like your diagram, so that's it.
Thanks man!
