Are These Dimarzios?


Recommended Posts



(the writing on the back says "MADE IN JAPAN")

awhile ago i got these pickups off ebay. the guy said they came out of an ibanez prestige.

they came in dimarzio boxing, along with the wiring instructins, so im not sure if they are dimarzios, or some stock brand.

so im just trying to verify that my wiring diagrams are correct. (http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/schematics/color_codes.html dimarzio, and http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/schem...h_1v_1t_3w.html with the dimarzio codes substitued)

thanks for the help.

They aren't Dimarzio and the Dimarzio color code won't work.

One looks to have 2 wires with shield. Obviously the two wires are signal hot and signal ground. And the shield is the RF ground.

The other is too blurry for me to tell how many conductors it has. But if it has 4 conductors plus a shield. check and see if two of the wires are already

connected together. If they are, leave them and protect the connection. Those would be used to coil split the pickup if you wanted. Otherwise just leave

them connected together and to nothing else. The other two colors would be signal hot and signal ground and the shield would be RF Ground.

You can connect each pickup with either color for Signal Hot or for Signal ground to hot or ground. If after you do that, they sound out of phase. Meaning thin and

weak when used together, reverse the signal wires on one of the pickups and you will be all set.
