Complete Dimarzio Pickup Routing Specs/Wiring Diagrams

For those of you wanting to make pickup routing templates to exacting tolerances, here you go.

Steve Blucher himself emailed these to me a couple of years ago around the time I started at Warmoth.

















As a bonus, here's some wiring diagrams he's also sent me over the years.

This is the current wire scheme I have in my RG7620, replacing the JPM wire scheme that follows it.


JPM


JPM minus the tone pot

Yes, I now have wiring diagrams for when I put my DiMarzios in my 7........ Oh, wait; they're already in there. Oh well, I can use these for future reference.

It will certainly work with it, it just depends on what switching options you are looking for.

The options are explained in the summary, such as the first one I posted above. The diagram you posted a link to has a few different options, which are actually the stock switching options on many Ibanez 2 humbucker equipped guitars, such as the RG7620. I just decided that for my applications, having the neck pickup available in either series or parallel made no difference to me. I'd rather have the splitting options as I've chosen as I've found that I'm growing more fond of having some single coil options for my clean tones & that I never play both humbuckers simultaniously in full humbucking mode. It's either one, the other, humbucking or split, or a combination of both split.

To each his own though, that's why there are so many options. The Allparts multipole switch was only $17.00USD so it makes experimenting reasonably affordable.

What kind of guitar, how many pickups, what kind in each position, how many pots, what type of p/u selector switch?

How come all i can find is 3 way tele style switches, and 5 ways with 12 ....ing leads?
Am i the only person in the world that has a 5 way switch with 8 leads??
I've never even seen a switch like the 5 way multipole that is in all the diagrams and i'v been wiring my own guitars for years.

Does anyone have a diagram which actually shows what is being switched? I would like to understand what is happening so I can measure out whatever switch I find. Specifically interested in the JPM "center position coil tap hum canceling" switch mode with no tonepot!

Thanks guys!

How does this diagram



translate to a 3-way switch that looks like this...with all the terminals lined up instead of staggered like in the diagram?



Also, in the wiring diagram, it says to solder red and green together? I thought always red was hot and that green and bare go to ground. Or is that for the JPM type of connection?

In case you haven't found it.






Now could anyone help me with this? I want this, except with positions 2 and 4 to be parallel instead of split, while keeping position 3 the same.

After experimenting with all of these different switching options, I've actually reverted back to standard 3 way switching, no splitting. I've just added a bit more treble on my cleans and found that I have all of the fullness with the clarity by doing that, so I'm back to a standard LP type of 3 way on my TFS6 and a Tele style 3 way blade switch on my RG7620.

I'm still glad to have experimented with these various options, it just helps you solidify the choices you've settled upon after taking the time to scrutinize over the benefits or consequences of each of them.

How about 8 string D Activators?

Unfortunately, I don't have that answer. The only diagram I have is the JPM above, so I couldn't comment on further wire diagrams.

I can only imagine that if you eliminated connecting the (Bridge) white/black and (Neck) red/green wires, you'd have a standard 3 way, with a shorter switch post, which is a complete comfort/feel issue between the EP #1111 and a standard LP styled 3 way.

I'm wanting to wire my Dimarzio CL/LF 7 set up like my JP6 with a 3 way blade switch. Is this just the same as the "tele switch" and will the diagram posted up there be what I'm looking for? Bridge/Inner Coils/Neck ? Also, which way do I look at that switch? is left hand side to the neck? I'm a total wiring noob but I can't afford to have a tech do it when I'm spending so much on parts, haha!

Due to seeing a LOT of members asking how to wire in DiMarzio pickups into thier RG7XXX's & S7X20's, I think this diagram NEEDS to be in here since it's not already and will avoid members asking "why don't this sound right" or "why don't my switch work in these positions"...

Diagram for wiring DiMarzio pickups into Ibanez RG & S 7-strings w/ 2 humbuckers:


I can't say how many times I myself (both here on the boards and in-person...) and others have had to tell people to use this diagram so they don't have problems because they wired their pickups in wrong or someone else gave them the wrong diagram... This will clarify things and take any and all guess work out of the equation.

Hi guys,
I have an Ibanez s470 and I'm replacing just the bridge and neck with d-activators.
Will I have to re wire the original ibanez middle pickup to work with the d-activators? or can I just wire in the new pickups leaving the single coil alone?
I've been looking at google for days but can't find the answer.

If you wire the D-Activators in the same way the previous pickups are wired then the middle pickup will function the same way as always.
