Hi, i have a Ibanez Rg3exfm1 and im going to replace the stock pickups with dimarzio crunchlab(bridge) and liquifire(neck). i want the (standard 8 poll) 5-way switch to be: neck, neck split, bridge and neck, bridge split, bridge. is this possible with that switch? if not what would be a recommended setup? Please provide wiring diagrams as i cannot find one for this model. Sorry for being a noobDoh
Thanks, Ben

I don't know about the neck/bridge in humbuck together. You didn't be any chance mean the bridge/neck (split) did you? If so......



If not......I don't know

in order to get those five combinations, you're going to need a five way super switch. you may be able to track a wiring diagram down that has this combination from either one of ibanezes wiring diagrams for one of their other guitars that use this exact scheme or go to a website similar to where hibidy got the pic from. can't recall the site, but it should have the wiring combo you're looking for. I'm guessing the site might be guitarelectronics.com or something but don't quote me.

but I'm reasonable sure that this site would have instructions for neck/neck split(coil of choice)/neck plus bridge/bridge split(coil of choice)/bridge with one vol and one tone. and would use a standard five way super switch instead of the ibanez one because the ibanez one is a proprietary switch that will make wiring for the person doing the work (you or someone else) murder because you'd have to translate between ibanez switch stuff and diagram stuff

Ok, so what i unerstand is that to get the neck full humbucker and the bridge full humbucker in position 3 i have to have a super switch? I dont have on i just have the stock ibanez one and it has 8 post sticking out. So what is the recomended/standard setup with one of these switches? PS. all the diagrams from guitarelectronics.com use super switches.
Thanks, Ben

Ya, if you read my earlier post you would see that i already checked them out but all their diagrams use super switches, and i have a normal 8 poll 5 way switch so they dont help me. So can i have the middle selection be both humbuckers full with the switch i have?

Ya, if you looked over those diagrams and read earlier posts--you'd know you have to use a multipole switch. You cannot wire your current switch to do what you're looking for. Square pegs don't go into round holes...LOL.

Decide exactly what you want and exactly what electronic components you are going to use and I'd be happy to draw up a wiring diagram for you.

First--your guitar does not have the same switch as the RG2620.
Second--that diagram is for a guitar without a single coil in the middle.

As previously mentioned, a few times, that combo is not possible with your switch. You need to have a multipole.

You will need either...



...from Ibanez or...



...from Stewart Macdonald (among others)

With either of these you can have just about any combination in any position. Position 1 doesn't have to be the bridge humbucker in series and position 5 doesn't have to be the neck pickup at all.

A multipole switch will allow for the multiple switching options you want, and is your only option for those.
This one looks to be what you're after. Make note of the switch used...

You want specific switching options, so ditch the stock switch, install a multipole switch, and wire it up to do what you want.

Yes--that is a multipole switch.
As far as your current switch, just look through the diagrams at guitarelectronics.com to see the various options.
