Firstly, hello SD forum. Been enjoying reading the posts and see there are a lot of knowledgeable people here. Hoping to be able to get acquainted and start learning mods and experimenting different setups. On to the assistance I need in order to get started on that.
I am putting all new electronics and pickups in my Ibanez RG270 DX. I'm using an SH-8 Invader in the neck, STHR-1N Hot Rails in the middle, and an SH-13 Dimebucker in the bridge. I already removed all old components, put in a 500K Bourns tapered volume pot (can, and most likely will, swap with a 500K push/pull audio pot), a Bourns 500K push/pull tone pot, an Oak- Grigsby 5 way, 4 pole super switch, 1/4" stereo output jack and foil taped the cavity. I have a few extra Push/Pull audio pots (500K), .022 caps (if needed) and some knobs in case I absolutely must drill a hole, which I'd prefer to avoid. I also have a DiMarzio Crunch Lab and SD Jazz Humbucker that I just installed on my ESP Horizon NT-II, but I am not terribly sold on the tone for that guitar, so I have options for pickups.
With all that said, here is what I am trying to do.
I'm planning on keeping the Ibanez tuned to D or lower to play heavier, thicker tones. I like the deep drive of the Invader (especially in the neck!) and I really like the high output, sharper tone of the Dimebucker in the bridge as it helps crisp up the low end (I play 12s on the Ibanez). The middle I originally wanted to put the Dimarzio Evolution single coil to be able to give a bit of a brighter tone to both humbuckers, but decided to give the Hot Rails a shot instead, as it fit a single coil position and I could split the coil to play with possible warming tones or possibly sharper tones through distortion.
I was thinking that in order to get this sound, I would use this set-up:
Pot Down: (Would like to set up series/parallel if possible with what I ask)
Pos 1: Neck
Pos 2: Neck + Middle
Pos 3: Middle (Considering Neck + Middle + Bridge)
Pos 4: Middle + Bridge
Pos 5: Bridge
Pos 1: Neck North Coil + Bridge South Coil
Pos 2: Neck North Coil + Middle South Coil
Pos 3: Neck South Coil + Middle South Coil + Bridge South Coil
Pos 4: Middle North Coil + Bridge South Coil
Pos 5: Neck South Coil + Bridge North Coil
I'm very open to suggestion, I'd like to do more, but I thought this would be task enough for now. If someone could assist with this wiring diagram setup, I would greatly appreciate it.
