PRS 59/09 pickups for Ibanez5470?
I am new to the forum so please excuse my n00b-ness.
I would like to replace my current humbuckers (neck + bridge) in my S5470 for some PRS 59/09's! I would like to try doing it myself but have no experience whatsoever with swapping guitar electronics.
Can anybody help get me started for things I must know before starting, etc?
Is there any kind of funky impedance matching or anything I must do to prevent noise? What kind of issues should I try to prevent running into?
I can solder and I have all of the necessary equipment on hand.
I would like to install the two 59/09 pick ups and use my 5-way switch to switch between the humbuckers, (ike in the 2012 PRS custom 24) leaving the single coil inactive (I don't use it often).
I don't want anyone to do it for me, but any links to necessary guides/info is GREATLY appreciated! Also advice is always welcome.
I have found schematics on this site for the Ibanez S5470 wiring, and the PRS wiring for the 59/09's. Is it really as simple as switching a humbucker set for another humbucker set?
