Wiring Dimarzio in RGA 121?

Hi!

I'm about to install the Super Distortion and Air Norton in my RGA 121, which has the stock pickups still left in it. The Super Distortion is going to be in the bridge position and the Air Norton in the neck position.

Now, how do i wire it?!

I'm looking at the wiring diagram for the RGA 121 and it looks correct. I've come across this:

Ibanez -> Dimarzio
Red -> Red
Black -> Black
White -> Green
Green -> White

Could this be right? Because if it is its no problem, I just need to know what color goes where.

If you guys want the RGA 121 wiring diagram I'll be happy to draw it in paint, cause Ibanez seem to have removed all diagrams from their page....

Hoping for some help, I'll be eternally grateful =)

Merry Christmas

the Ibanez site still has their wiring diagrams, though the RGA's are missing...
Refer to RG7620 diagram

I don't know the 5-way for HH by heart but i believe the bridge is connected "normally":
Red to 5-way
Black+White to 5-way
Green+Bare to (ground) volume pot

For the neck pickup, black is not soldered to white.

Re: Wiring Dimarzio in RGA 121?

This is what I've come up with, I haven't installed it yet. Thought I'll give you guys a look at it first.

I'm using the colorcode that I posted earlier:

Ibanez -> Dimarzio
Red -> Red
Black -> Black
White -> Green
Green -> White


But that leaves out the White and Black on the bridge pickup, what to do?!

Merry Christmas

EDIT: Oh btw, purple = white!


EDIT 2: I e-mailed Dimarzio and they sent me this:

They didn't say much of anything else, just that I should "see the attached diagram".

For anybody who's gonna install 4-conductor Dimarzios in their Ibanez RGA 121, THIS IS HOW TO DO IT
