Default My project guitar Ibanez RG550 to Custom JEM77

My project guitar Ibanez RG550 to Custom JEM77

In this project, I used 3 pickups DIMARZIO
DP215
DP158
DP116

I replaced the ton switch capacitor 22NF
capacitor of VISHAY 22NF

in the Volume Switch 500k I changed the capacitor 330PF
to Resistor 130 KHOM In series
capacitor1NF LCR
Now when I lower the volume
Guitar switch
There is no decline in the quality.

The internal wiring of the guitar was replaced with
Auric Hookup 18 AWG wire

the dimarzio pickup dp116 Connected in single split coil
Red and black wire connected
Green and white wires not
Only one coil runs


The end result
Guitar sounds amazing

I solved the problem that many people with pickup DIMARZIO DP116
HS-2.
Always position 2 and 4 sound weaker.
I managed to solve the problem.
from the dp 116
The red (hot wire )connect to the common ground.
ground wire to the common ground.
And the black wire to switch pot.

I did it according to the drawing of Ibanez JEM 555

Now all the 5 Position
Sound the same level .
