Dimarzio IBZ C2 X2 install. Bonehead question.

K, have my old MIJ RG YM-50 wiring harness and switched from an HSH to an HSS setup. Problem is I only have 1 of the ground wires(like the ones in the pic) So....what the hell do I do to rectify the situation, Is it necessary to have another one? or can it be MacGruber-ed

I'm not quite understanding the issue. if you need to ground something then just add another wire. You ground the pickups (with their ground wire/s), the jack, bridge, etc to the back of a pot.

Re: Dimarzio IBZ C2 X2 install. Bonehead question.

It's because your harness came from probably an RG550. The entire pickup cavity is a continuous route, so there is only one ground wire. You could either check eBay for another harness or just leave those out. They're somewhat redundant in the system.
