Hey guys, I have a set of Ibanez humbucker pickups but they only have three wires... A red wire, a white wire and a bare strand wire. Can I use these in a tiger wiring since the white wire and black (missing wire) go to the same place?

If not what are some super 2-ish sounding pickups i can get for cheap to use untill I save up for super 2's and sds-1's.

Thanks, Alex

check with Ibanez... they might have a wiring diagram. Most pickup winders have them posted on their sites. Some of the pickups have the pos and neg wires inside the old style cable wire... in some cases you can attach the outer to ground for better shielding. The old gibson pickups used the outer wire as ground and the inner as hot.

Sounds like a non-splittable series-only humbucker
