Ibanez 2 Humbucker S Series Wiring

Hi Everyone,

First post here and I'm hoping your collective Ibanez knowledge can help me out. I've looked through what's on here already as far as wiring goes and I just can't seem to find what I need.

I have a Ibanez S1220WNF (2 humbucker) as a project build going and it has no electronics in it. I have a Dimarzio Crunch Lab and a Liquifire to put in but I can't figure out which switch I should be getting and how to wire it. I can get a VLX53 switch from Ibanez but there doesn't seem to be any resources on wiring it. I could also get a "SC" switch from Reverb: "https://reverb.com/item/95212-ibanez-s-series-sabre-replacement-5-way-switch-540r-s570-prestige-japan-j-craft-free-ship-fits-rg". It has a wiring diagram on it for 3 conductor pickups and I don't understand how that translates to a 4 conductor pickup. There's lot of info out there about VLX91 and SC/2052W switches but I can't find any of those to purchase.

If anyone has any insight on this or knows a different switch that is going to fit into my S-Series it would be greatly appreciated as I'm new to wiring up a guitar and floundering a bit at the moment.

- Evan

That switch on Reverb is dead right for your application, use this wiring diagram:

Awesome! Thx. Which wires do I combine together on my 4 wire bridge humbucker to match up with the diagram that has a 2 wire humbucker in the bridge?

You need the Ibanez and Dimarzio colour codes:

I didn't notice that the other pickup was only two-wire, so use this diagram instead:
