HELP! Installing BKP and Duncan in a RG2XXV

Hey guys

I need help asap!

I'm installing a Bareknuckle Aftermath in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan YJM humbucking single coil in the middle of my RG2XXV but can't seem to figure out if I'm wiring the pickups to the right connections on the 5 way switch. It looks like the factory installed neck pickup is in the spot where the bridge should be. I wired both the middle and bridge to where I thought they should go but now the middle doesn't work at all, the neck pickup buzzes/feedsback, and the bridge is lacking power.

Unfortunately to make things extremely worse I need this guitar ready for a gig on Friday

Does anyone have any proper diagrams for the ibanez 5 way switch and how I need to be wiring in my BK bridge and SD middle pickups?! Any info helps!!

Re: HELP! Installing BKP and Duncan in a RG2XXV

Check your color codes, I just swapped to some SD on my RG yesterday and the Dimarzio Red is equal to the SD Black. Even the single coil was color coded differently. All switches are kind of different, without knowing what you have/are going for I'd say just put the wires in the same configuration as the old ones with the colors in mind. Best of luck!
