Have you even tried a search on the ibanez website and the seymour duncan website?

Ibanez -

Find your guitar model there, and get familiar with what is "hot" and "not".

Then go over to the SD site and look for the pickup config you're looking at and try and match up what you have with the diagrams there (important to note that the wiring colors are different). That should help you.

Finally, a site that is pretty generic but should help as well

dude, that pickup is almost worth the entire guitar!!! no offense, i've been there before, too. my first axe was a $150 ex160 that i pumped over $300 into. which makes me feel...well, you get the point.

if u have problems wiring it, u can also heat up the pots and melt the conductive material between the mechanism, once a long time ago i had a problem wiring a guitar and i must have damaged a pot

i did it right and it didnt sound good at all, i redid it clean with new pots and it helped
check dimarzio site and click on like a x2n pickup and on the bottom left its got a wiring example thing u can click on, shuffle through they are great, just subtitute the wiring colors, dont forget
