Sorry for all those mislead before, it's the same post I put in a while ago, but I accidently headed it 'Definitive PGM Wiring'! Whoops!

--

Just for anyone who needs it, i've got THE definitive wiring diagram for how to wire up 2 humbuckers, JPM style, using either an original JPM-P100 type switch, the Dimarzio equivalent(#EP1111) which is slightly different, a DiMarzio/Fender 3-way tele switch or the alternative generic type tele switch where the soldering fins are in a different order.

With 5 switches, You can see why it's taken me so long to crack this nut!!

If you need it, send me a PM or email me and i'll send it to you. Only reason i'm doing it this way is because old threads tend to not show the pictures after a while so people down the line might not benefit.

I spent ages working these out with the help of various people on this forum and the guys at DiMarzio, and from my own experience I know there's a lot of people who keep enquiring about it and I found it a nightmare.

Laters,
Matt
Just buy my MSM100 ;) instant JPM100 switching/layout, the only difference is it's got a TZ in the bridge :D Seriously though, thanks for contributing to the community, it really means a lot, as there is very little out there, as far as wiring diagrams for this sort of thing.

haha :) would love to get one MSM100 pretty soon. But I just got the JPM and I wanted to replace the 3 way switch with the correct to spec ibanez switch, as the one that's installed here by the previous owner is a different 3 way and more on a les paul type 3 way. 馃榾 I tried hooking it up based on the Dimarzio Website but still no joy, so I figured there must be some mistakes on my wiring. Might as well ask here to see if there's a correct way to solder the wires. I even researched the site but same problem as mine no sound on the center/middle position.
Wow, I always thought the DiMarzio 3 way was the correct one :( I used to have a few JPM100's back in the day, but they were all original so I never had to bother with learning the wiring. I could always snap a picture of the inside of my MSM100 as the wiring on it IS identical and should use a switch that is contemporary. Lmk if you need that
