3 Wire EMG designed Ibanez humbucker with 3 way switch wiring? RGR321EX
 
Hi Everyone

I am new here but my Ibanez is about 10 years old by now.
I have been modding it alot but i am restoring it to stock, but am confused about the wiring and can't find it online.
The EMG designed Ibanez pickups have three wires, white red and bare.
But it only has a three way switch, so i assume the white goes to the switch, bare to ground, but what to do with the red wire.

Could you please assist me on this?

Thanks!

Yep... White to the switch, bare to the ring or switched ground lug on the input jack, and red directly to the battery.

These emgs are passive so the red is a coil tap and doesn't need to go to anything. Just tape it off.

Good catch.. EMG "designed". Not a good idea to hook that red wire to a battery in this case... lol!:surprise:
