Hi everyone.

I own a 1527, bought an evolution for the bridge three months ago, installed it...all fine.

Just received an air norton for neck, installed it, all wrong: lots (a real lot) of interferences in position 2,3,4 and 5.

I think i need some kind of a guru in the pickup wiring field..

I tried two different settings, same result each time, lots of interferences, i can't tell you what i did because i ain't where the guitar is right now. I also went a little crazy with the ibanez diagram having colors that don't necessarily match the actual colors of the wires from the actual ibanez pickups (why?????)

I remember there was a thread around here on jemsite where one told the other the corresponding colors between ibz and dimarzio pickups, however, i can't find it back.

Can someone please help me, i have only two humbuckers, a classic ibanez 5 way selector and i would like to have the usual setting.
Many thanks!

might not be the proper term for it...

like a constant "buzzz", especially when you aim the pickup toward electronic devices...humming? i don't know the term.

ok, i tried to figure it out and changed the wiring to this..

(i have a link to a photo of what i did but i can't post a url because of my post count being too low.. and attaching images here seems to shorten the size of the files)
I still have the problem but it's "better", i mean there is less "noise", but still..

I think i'm on the right track.
I only have a slight humming when i don't touch any metalic part of the guitar, it's very quiet, but ends automatically when i touch something metalic. I think this is a ground issue.
If someone has an idea..

I'm having the same problem, I installed the neck as the same wiring as the old pickup (except forgot to write down where black wire was so idk if that is right) and also I am completely at a loss for my bridge pickup because the stock had only 3 wires and the evo has 5. Also I am guessing I keep all the wires the same on the pots since they are the wires for the phase inversion that happens on position 2 of the 5 way.

I may wire it as Blue posted above and see if I have grounding issues, if not then you'll know it might be the ground.

You should search for the wiring diagram for Ibanez RG7620 at http://www.ibanez.com/support/wiringdiagrams.aspx
Choose instrument >guitar
Year > 1999 or so
Model RG 7620
That one has the dimarzio wiring colours, and the other parts are the same as yours, do a complete check for wrong solder grounds.

Looking at your picture there is something wrong with your white wire form the neck pickup, bur I can't be sure what it is.

But the 7620 doesn't have a phase reverse does it? The wiring would entail changing the green to hot and red to ground wouldnt it for the phase reverse? I tried a few different wirings for the neck pickup only and the thing was working, then it got really quiet and then the next morning it was only working when the selector was moved to 4 or 5 instead of 1 and 2 the night before.

WTF! I am good at wiring but I've never had these sort of problems haha, I mean I've wired Harleys before cmon

Wow I feel stupid, it must be the migraine again. I think I was remembering incorrectly, the 1527 has parallel on the 2nd pos not a phase reverse, so everything is wired the same as that 7620 pic.... I'll try and do better in the future haha
