  1. Pickups & wiring
    The RG in question is HSH, Evos and a True Velvet in the middle. My YM50 5-way switch is gone, I wanted a CRL but I couldn't find one ina short notice. So I wired a Schaller Megaswitch type ''S'' The wiring was standard RG with an additional neck (or bridge) pup splitting using the Push/pull...

    Hi everyone, I'm about to start a project on my Japanese '93. RG 470. The stock pickups were changed to Evolution neck and bridge with True Velvet single coil. Now I have ordered the V-Treb treble bleed circuit for it, and I want to split the neck pickup using the 500k push-pull pot on volume...

    I've been doing some research in order to add another 4 possible positions to my pu selector as in the EGEN 8 and 18 in my guitar (RG350) but I have some questions. 1. Can it be made using the Grigsby Superswitch instead the VLX91? 2. Do i need to also replace the pickups, or can i keep the...
  4. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hey everyone, So I went down to a local tech who I have used in the past to discuss having my JS 900 upgraded to have the switching options of a JS1000, i.e volume switch high pass filter and tone control coil split. We got talking and he suggested the idea of leaving the high pass filter as...

    Can anyone put up a wiring diagram with hsh and a five way switch, but able to split the humbuckers independently - with a mini switch instead of a push/pull pot? ^Like this but with a mini switch instead of a push/pull.

    My fantasy: HSH Push-Pull Volume Knob for Coil Split Push-Pull Tone Knob for Coil Split 3 On-Off Switches ipo 5-Way Selector Pots capable of switching from 500k in humbucking mode to 250k in single coil mode for honest sound. Is it possible?
  8. Pickups & wiring
    I swapped in a set of DiMarzio Breed pickups into a two-pickup, five-way (GEA5) switch-equipped guitar last night. Used a Dimarzio-supplied wiring diagram. Everything works EXCEPT for position #4 which coil splits them both. I double checked the wiring and even swapped out a pot with no luck...
  9. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, I would like to wire my pickups with a 3-way toggle switch. I want neck-coilsplit-bridge. I have checked around and I found that the Dimarzio switch ep1111 (4pdt) works (JPM wiring). But I also found a wiring diagram on Dimarzios webpage, can't post a link cause' this is my first post. But...

    Hi guys I just changed the pickups and replaced all the electronics in my rg550 today to an evolution set and a ym 50 switch with standard rg/Jem h-s-h wiring but I'm having issues. In the 2nd and 4th positions, the coils aren't splitting in the humbuckers. I used a dimarzio wiring diagram but...

    Hi, first time poster, long time lurker :) I have a nice SZ520 that I really like, but now I'm wanting the guitar to reach its full potential. I have a Seymour Duncan Jazz/JB set that I want to install, and also a new tone pot as the old one was scratchy. I'm pretty new to guitar modifications...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    I know that itwa sprobably asked a million times, but I wasn't able to find the answer using search, google, or pickups resource thread. I replace stock V7V8 in my RGA121 with Air Norton / TZ. I have a schematic from Ibanez, but Ibanez and Dimarzio colour coding does not match. The pickups...

I fitted a DPDT coil split which works great on the bridge but make no difference to the sound on the neck. Not even more Hum The switch and wiring all check out fine so I...

  15. Pickups & wiring
    I've got an S5470 with a Tone Zone, True Velvet middle, and Air Norton. My output jack just broke, so I figured while I'm back in there with the soldering iron, maybe it's time to set up a coil split function. I just ordered the push/pull pot from the JS1200 and EGEN 18, but now I need to...

    Hi guys. I have an old (2003) Yamaha with Duncan pickups in SSH, and a complicated looking 5 way selector switch of some kind. Here's a picture of the electronics cavity, and a color-coded version of which wire goes where. =============================== Now, I want to add in a little...

    ça marche? Red and white to top left, ground to bottom left. Black to middle, which is connected to other side. Using a Seymour Duncan Screamin' Demon. Do they even sound any good split?
  19. Pickups & wiring
    I've done some research and have found no enlightenment. Can I use the tone pot on my strat to split the bridge humbucker with a one volume, two tone setup. If so, how?
  20. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Can anyone tell me what all of the positions on a 5 way switch are on my Ibanez RG620? It has 2 pickups and the piezo is seperate so I don't understand what the 5 way switch is switching. Please email me at [email protected] Thanks
