    Default Need help wiring a Dimarzio PAF Pro

    I'm going to try it in my Ibanez RGA. The stock bridge pup (Ibanez V8) has just a bare ground going to the volume pot w/ a red going to one switch lug & white to another. The guitar is a double hum stock & I don't want to do anything fancy right now. Just fiddlin' to see how it'll sound. The PAF Pro has the bare, white, black, red & green wires. SO, how do I wire it to function as stock switch-wise? I know I'll need to connect 2 of the colord wires but which two & where do the remaining ones go?

    TIA
    Ted

    Twist em together (red and white) and let em hang and test. Green to ground, black to switch. You may have to switch the green and black. Cant remember with da Pro. Use alligator clips.
    When you gets it right, soder the two hangers together, tape, and let em hang.

    I think that's correct for a 2 hum 3 way switch(Les Paul/WG/etc) but for my 5 way won't I need something to go to the 2 seperate switch lugs for the switching to be same as stock?

    Dont know if you have two tones or not. If you do, I can find that too.
    Dont think that Demarz are the same wire color as SD, but this could be a start.

    Nah, just the one tone. That looks more like what I need. I just need to figure out now what color combos to use.

    Thanks.

    Get a bunch of the clips with wire. Radio Shack has packets real cheap. The things are great for this kinda stuff.
