Quick wiring diagram question

Hey guys, I need a wiring diagram for an rg321, but with only one pickup(a Dimarzio ToneZone) and only one pot(a volume pot, 500k dimarzio) and a standard dimarzio input jack Where can I get that?
Also, Do I need any other wire except for the wire included on the pickup for doing all of this? Thanks!

Re: Quick wiring diagram question

This one is easy enough that a diagram is overkill. I assume you are bypassing the switch entirely? If so, just remove the wire that goes from the switch to the volume pot and solder the dimarzio red wire to the pot where you just removed the old wire. Take the dimarzio green and shield wires and solder both to the back of the pot casing. Solder the black and white wires to each other and cover with a piece of electrical tape.

Re: Quick wiring diagram question

Join the white and black wires together, insulate it and then just leave it. Ground the green & bare wires to the back of the pot. Connect the red wire to the left lug of the volume pot and then run a wire from the middle of the volume to the pot. Make sure you also connect the ground of the output jack to the back of the pot.

Re: Quick wiring diagram question

Some options for you. use 2 poles on the switch and use it for a kill switch. Wire the black/white pair to the center lug on the tone pot(remove the cap and old wire from the volume pot lug ) and solder the black/white pair to the center lug on the tone pot. Now when you back the tone knob off, it will blend the humbucker to single coil with shades in between. Nice if you need a clean strat-type tone.
