Question Wiring Dimarzios into an RGA121

I'm wiring Dimarzios into my RGA121 and I need to know how to do it. A wiring diagram would be helpful.

Thanks

Would this diagram work for my guitar?

Yup, I think the pickup wires are colour coded in the DiMarzio scheme, Green and white one coil and Black and Red the other.

Yes. I just put dimarzios in my 121 and that's the same diagram I used because I wanted to keep the switching scheme the same. Worked perfectly.

You'll notice that the white wire from the dimarzio corresponses to the green wire that came off the V7. The black & white wires from the bridge pickup go to the same place that the white wire went from the V8.

Yep. I wired in a PAF in the neck and a D Activator in the bridge using that diagram.

Weird, but the guy that wired it before me put the PAF and an X2N but he wired the PAF with the white and black leads tied together where the black wire is for the neck pickup. Maybe that's to run in true single coil mode instead of parallel mode in the 2nd switch position. I changed it back to the way it's supposed to be.
