Ibanez Factory wiring

Ok ive just got a 91 Ibanez 540R LTD & a couple of wires had come loose from the 5 way lever switch. I can't identify where they went as theres solder on every lug of the switch.

I was wondering if anyone knows how the pickups were wired from the factory on this specific guitar ? are they split coils at position 2 & 4 or parallel or .......?

Re: Ibanez Factory wiring

Oh also forgot to ask.
Which 5 way switch should come on the 540R LTD as standard? Should it be the YM-50 or the VLX91 or anyother, the one on my guitar looks like the import type it has the connection lugs in a straight line not staggered & the circuit board looks green.

Re: Ibanez Factory wiring

Cheers mate i thought it might have been the YM-50 as i remember my 91 S540 LTD also having one of those.
I'd still like to know how the pickups were wired from the factory coz im not getting any sense from dimarzio they keep sending me diagrams with the black & white wires connected to the 5 way switch which im assuming is coil splitting & i dont want it wired that way i thought it should be the 3 hot wires from the 3 pickups to the switch also the wire connecting the volume pot to the switch & black & white soldered & taped together then green & bare grounded on the back of pots?
it seems that the electronics in the guitar have been changed or modified over the years & i want it back to original
