atifman Posted May 6, 2004 Report Share Posted May 6, 2004 Hello I have Hum/Sing/Hum combo in Ibanez RG570 I'll be switching out the stock pickups sometime in the future, and i was wondering if i get this setup going in my guitar: I want to keep the 5 positions i have now 1. neck 2. neck + middle 3. middle 4. bridge + middle 5. bridge but i want to add on the "John Petrucci Inner Coil of Neck and Bridge Humbucker (humcanceling)" deal with my guitar Plus i want to add the Emg Afterburner, but I have 2 knobs: 1 vol, 1 tone, and i don't want to necessarily lose them or drill new holes into my guitar. So how am i going to do this? The ideal setup for me would be: the EMG-AB works like a tone knob in the off position (or volume), and the other knob i'd use a push-pull pot, and in the up position, it would switch to the JP inner coil position (plus some other positions maybe) or Replace the tone knob with a 3 way switch, and then it would be like this: 1. Sounds like Tone knob rolled all the way down 2. Sounds like Tone knob rolled all the way up 3. Inner Coil dealie and I'd skip the EMG-AB or use the volume knob for a high pass filter with push/pull switch. (the EMG-AB isn't as important to me) I talked to the EMG tech guy and he said in order to use an EMG-AB as a tone knob i'd have to use a "stacked pot". What's that, a dual concentric knob control pot? I guess I could do that for vol/tone, but like I said, I don't really care about the EMG-AB thing as much as the Coil-splitting function. I'm more interested in that. So is anything i'm asking for possible? What can I do? Right now, i'm sort of asking if it's even possible, I don't need a wiring schematic.....yet On a side note, is there a site on the web that explains what the wires from the pickup do? I can sort of follow the schematics (i have a really basic understanding of electronics), but I want learn which wire does what and why guitars are wired like they are; so i can have a better understanding of the pickup wiring in my guitar.
