help Please!! b&b l500xl and vlx91 :-(

Hi folks,

I've searched and seached thru the site and scoured the web...but i'm stuck.

I've stripped my 92 rg550.
Im re-wireing with:
2 x 500k dimarzio pots
vlx91 switch
new jack socket (old one faulty)
bridge pickup bill and becky l500xl
middle pickup area 67 dimarzio
neck air zone

my problem is the where on earth do the l500xl wires go?
can anyone put me out of my misery?

all advice appreciated:-)

Your going to have to use a diagram like this, but I don't know the B&B colors....... hopefully they supplied you with that info.

now we're talking!

what about the coil splitting? the vlx91 is confusing the hell out of me.

i've been going over my wiring so far..i've been copying the 20th anniversary jem schematic.
is that ok?
