Thank you!!!! I tried the Ibanez search on my phone and it wouldn't bring up any models. This is going into (came out of) a 2003 S470. The guitar was beat when I got it; broken neck, missing tremolo pieces and I let it sit for a few years. Well... now I have depleted most of my collection (minus the projects, restorations and builds), and have an urge to play something unlike anything.On the Powersound pickups, the red wire is the coil tap. You need to ground it out, most of the time this is easier to do with a push/pull pot than to add a little toggle switch somewhere.
What kind of guitar are they going in? I mean, it's a lot different if you are putting them in a Les Paul or an RG or Strat type.
There is a wiring diagram on Ibanez's site:
Ibanez.com | Wiring Diagrams
Select "guitar", 2004, & GAX30... It has the Powersound pickups, a 3-way, and vol/tone. All you have to do is ground out the red wires in the diagram, either by a little toggle switch or a push/pull pot wired to the back of the volume pot where the other grounds attach.
Hope this helps!!
Sounds cool... A worthy project. I hope it turns out to be a great player.This one will be hardtailed, the neck is a Strat style, I pulled the wiring and decided to take these and coil tap them, but with an on/off switch. Basically, this is going to be a very spare parts build. I sold the tremolo and that paid for the guitar itself. So for under $20 (need some scrap wood, paint and strings) I'm going to run a straight Frankenstein style, no investment bad-ass-o-caster.
