Seymour Duncan Liberator

I've been thinking about doing away with the single coil in my Jem7DBK for a while now and just using a H-H configuration and happened upon the Seymour Duncan Liberator. I love the idea of being able to quickly but I can't for the life of me find a wiring diagram for a 5 way selector switch. The stock Ibanez switch is being replaced with a 5 way CRL too. Basically what's going on is that I've removed the pickguard with the H-S-H, switch and volume and tone pots and will be replacing it with Gravity Storm neck and bridge pickups, the Liberator as a volume pot and a 500K tone pot.

Any help here guys? I've researched this so much that I'm thoroughly confused.

Re: Seymour Duncan Liberator

The Liberator is a great little device. I use that with a Cortek 3PS1SC5, which is made for Ibanez H-H guitars. If you are using that switch there are a number of diagrams on the Ibanez support section. If it's a different switch you are getting it will need to be a super or mega type switch. Standard strat style five way switches won't give you the options you want.

Re: Seymour Duncan Liberator

Thanks Phantom. I actually have one of those switches around here somewhere. I don't suppose you might be willing to snap a pic of your installed Liberator would you? People think I'm insane for ditching the middle single coil but that area is where I "live" when picking and even cranked all the way down it caused some problems for me. I play it like I'm trying to kill it.
