Dimarzio Wiring ?

Hello, I have a Ibanez that is gonna have 1 Dimarzio Tone Zone in the bridge and 1 Ibanez Infinity single in the neck! Im only using a push pull volume knob to handle the switching from bridge to neck, no tone, ala George Lynch! My question is i know the red wire from the Tone Zone will be hot on one lug on the push pull switch but which wire will be hot from the Infinity to hook to the other lug? It only has a black and white wire! I looked at the Dimarzio website under 2 humbuckers with a push pull only and it says to use both reds as hots but the only other diagram is for 1 hum and 1 virtual single but it says to use the green wire as hot from the humbucker! Thats got me confused on which humbucker wire to use as hot-red or green? and what single coil to use as hot-white or black? Thanks

Or the green as the hot on the humbucker? the dimarzio website wiring diagram has me confused about this! is there something different with the dimarzio virtual single coils that you have to use the green as hot for the humbucker instead of the red?? im totally confused what to do here?

You can use the red on the tone zone and white from the single coil.

You can use green from the tone zone and solder the red to the ground. It just reverses the flow of the pickup. Anyways don't worry about that


If you need help wiring it up let me know.

Yes, your tone zone will perform as it should.
