    OK ok ok, so if any of you read the other one, Im waiting on my killswitch. I just got my 5 way, so I figured I would wire everything I had so far up.

    Now, my only problem is, every wiring diagram I find for an Ibanez RG550 has 2 wires coming from the middle pickup. One hot, and one ground. They dont mention anything about this random third wire! So the ground is just the bare wire itself, i get that. And the hot is the red wire...

    So what is the white wire in my middle pickup? And where does she go!?

    Picture of wiring diagram...

    H-S-HWiring.

    So whats up?
     
  2. This is a single coil pickup, correct?

    If so, it's likely a ground wire.

    The bare wire is the shielding, and the red and white wires are the + and - of the coil.

    it is a single coil!

    if i had a nickle for every time you pulled me out of a tight spot, I'd have a **** load of nickles.
     
  4. No, you're going to start paying me the nickels...

    the Guitarist can't get decent help from the other guitarists so he come skulking around the bass forum for help. Slumming it today are we? j/k! ;)
