Re: H S H Wiring issue
I don't think you should go by that diagram. I've never messed around with those Dimarzio/Ibanez pickups but from that diagram I think they have different wire color scheme than regular Dimarzios',could be wrong about that. Someone please correct me if that's wrong. The first thing I would do,if you aren't certain the pickup works is disconnect it from the switch and wire the red to positive on the jack and green and bare to negative on the jack and plug into your amp.
When the black and white wire are on the selector switch they are grounding out one of the coils in a particular switch position making the humbucker into a single coil pickup of sorts.
