The Pickup Place / Re: DP167 Soapbar - Need wiring info for pickup
« Last post by buddroyce on April 01, 2020, 11:35:06 pm »
As DarkBlueMurder mentioned, it really doesnt matter but I typically go with white being hot if I only have a choice of black and white.

You can either use as hot. They are both isolated from the base plate. I would start with white as hot. If the pickup is out of phase with the other pickup when both are selected, swap black with white.

Good luck

The Pickup Place / DP167 Soapbar - Need wiring info for pickup

Hi,

I have a DP167 the I want to install but it came without the install instructions, so I'm not sure which is the hot, the black wire or the white wire. Anyone know this off the top of their head?  I checked the DiMarzio site and soapbar install files are no longer there.

Thanks

The Pickup Place / Re: Is there a wiring to switch H-S-H to H-H temporarily?

Plus adding the single coil to all those.

Interesting. But how is it wired? Can i have the single coil only? Is the single coil combined with the humbuckers in some of the positions?

Ibanez vlx91 switch with an on/off for the single coil.
You get.
Bridge bucker
Inner coils parallel
Both buckers
Neck bucker parallel
Neck bucker

Plus adding the single coil to all those.

After wiring and playing my guitars with swiss army knife switching, I realized why most of that stuff is not on factory guitars.
Too complicated
Too much overlap
Potential to sound like crap
Too much to remember on the fly.

Strats with 7way switching, the wiring above, or a standard 2v2t 1 3way les paul setup are all I need these days

Congratulations, glad things worked out!  There is no re-sale value in this stuff, looks like he got it right the first time.

I just bought a set of Rose pickups for $85 (Robusta neck/middle and Buff Beauty bridge).  Boutique winder, very satisfied, they are 100% what I was looking for.  As good as my Seymour Duncan (if not better) and made to my specs (flat poles, 9.5" radius).
Not much on Youtube, but good comments in some forums. 
In Montreal (Canada) there's nothing in stores, so it's special order without 21 days exchange policy and no returns, plus 8-12 weeks waiting.
Better spend $85 to try something than $250-$300.
