Will the switch from Ibanez H-S-H guitar work for H-H?

I have an RG470 that was formerly and H-S-H guitar, and i modded the .... out of it and configured it for H-H (well... its a 4 wire single, Dimarzio Chopper) instead. Will the old 5 way switch work, or do i need a new one? I know Ibanez makes their switches kinda weird.

You can make it work to some extent, but not in the same way as the Ibanez guitars with H-H configs and five way switches work. The H-H Ibanez use a 3PS1SC5 switch which is specially made for them by Cortek.

Its the switch for an RG470. 1999. I love having Humbucking and split/parallel options, nothing too fancy!

You're not going to get parallel options and the like with the stock RG 470 five way. This is what you can get, but it's not an optimal layout in my opinion. You also have to transpose the american standard strat five way layout to the inline import style switch. Duncan colour scheme to DiMarzio too.

Tried a few differnet wiring schemes to no avail! Shoot. I had planned on eventually just throwing a Super Switch in there anyway, so i guess i'll just go ahead and buy one. Thanks!

AFAIK, most of basic 5 way switches (not Super Switch series) is quite similar in the basic logic connections between the poles. The differences is only in the layout of the poles.

Check the image attached.
