A little help with EMG-ZW 85/81 set wiring....

Hey there,

I just recently finished building a Custom Ibanez RG, and installed a set of EMG-ZW 81/85 I took out of another project I had going, and have got some wiring issues I'd like to ask about...

First off, my setup is as follows:

EMG 85 - Neck
EMG 81 - Bridge
-------------
1 Vol
1 Tone
3-Way DiMarzio 'Blade' Selector switch.
(and of course the 9V Battery and Input Jack)

I'm also considering putting in a 24v Active Boost.


I've had this problem with the previous guitar I had these pickups in; before I took them out, de-wired them, then re-did it from scratch to get a cleaner job done; worked off the EMG-ZW 81/85 PDF diagram. Page 3: '1 Vol, 1 Tone, 3 Way Blade Switch'.

For some reason when I connect it all, as per the diagram, when i plug it in and play, and use the selector switch, it seems both pickups are selected no matter what position the selector switch is at.

The setup SHOULD be: N-NB-B (Neck-Neck/Bridge-Bridge), with one Volume, and one Tone.
But it's currently outputting: NB-NB-NB (Neck/Bridge-Neck/Bridge-Neck/Bridge), with one Volume, and one Tone. Smiley Smiley

Could I get some help with wiring, or what might be the problem? I've got a gig in a few weeks and I want this guitar ready for it. I've wired a few passive pickups already and a set EMG's before, and they've worked, but that's was with a 2 Tone/2 Volume setup, Les Paul style 3-Way Selector type deal. As in my old Epi LP (which I've since sold).

Anyway I've linked a few pics of my new guitar, which I just finished yesterday; took about a month all up to acquire the parts, custom body and neck, and Edge III bridge; and just took the EMG's out of one of my other project guitars (which was having the same problems with these pickups, with the 1 vol/1tone setup); until I can buy a set of Chrome EMG 60/81 (before my September 10th gig hopefully). Smiley

Anyway cheers and keep it metal!

This is how EMG recommends it. If you're getting NB on all settings, you have it shorted out somehow.

This is super helpful. People say "tonewoods" are a lie, but in this situation I have to if this pickup would sound different with and Agathis wood bodied guitar
