Evolution bridge H into a JS100

I'm trying to get the Evoltion pickup I've got in my old guitar into my JS100. I'm hoping that it'll give me the evo sound I like, but with the nice pickup splitting of the JS100.

I'm working from this wiring diagram:


which I found on the Ibanez JS site (cheers)

I'm having a bit of difficulty getting the wiring sorted in my head.. the evo has :

white )()()()()()()()( green
black )()()()()()()()( red

atm I just have the black and white together, the red hot, the green ground.

How can I get the evo in and working the the coil switch?

ok, I think I got it sussed, I send the black and white together to the switch and the other side of the switch to earth, send the green and screen to earth and the red to signal.. that way I think when I switch it'll earth the midpoint of the coil and only give me signal from 1/2 .. otherwise it's earthed at one and and connected in series through both coils.... now i just gotta work out how to make sure I have the right phase.

If it sounds very "thin" it is likely out of phase (thats showing up when you use 2 pick-up´s at the same time).

Then just try to switch the colours to: Black=Hot out, Green&Red to the splitswich and white and "bare" to ground...
that is how my JEM10TH is originally set up from the factory.

I tried after the diagrams but got too much treble, with a little bit less middle and "bottom", so i Switched back and now it seems a little bit better.....
