Pickup wiring question- RG1570 Dimarzio upgrade

I'm replacing the stock pickups in my RG1570 with dimarzios.

I looked at the wiring diagrams in the pickup wiring sticky but I'm still a little confused.

The ibanez pickup has a red, White, and bare.

The dimarzio has red, white, black, green, bare.

Based on my understanding of the diagram the red and white stay the same.

What should I do with the black and green?

Sorry if this a noob question....

Re: Pickup wiring question- RG1570 Dimarzio upgrade

So, I've looked at some of Dimarzio's wiring diagrams but they do not have the same style pickup selector.

I think I may need to wire the black and white to where the Ibanez white lead went, the red to the red, and the green and bare to ground. Does this sound correct to you guys?

Sounds good to me. If it doesn't quite sound right where you put the red and black /white, then swap them around.

Check out the wiring diagrams on dimarzio's site. They'll be much more helpful.
