Help, 2 Humbucker 1 Volume, 1 Tone, 5 way switch. Pickups replacement


So i bought a new Ibanez RG421, the stock pickups are quite good for non tone purist, but as for me, i`m not satisfied. So I did a research for some pickups upgrade, and finally found that the Tesla have what i wanted, it was the Opus 1 Set.
After buying the pickup set, i was so excited to replace my pickups at home. I followed the diagram on my stock pickups wired(as seen on the photo), and i did the same as putting the Tesla set. Note: my guitar has 5 way lever switch, and it has a coil splitting in the 2nd and 4th position if i wasn`t wrong.

After the installation of my new Tesla set, the 4th position is totally OFF(dead), but the rest are working fine. I didn`t know where did i go wrong.

Pickup gurus, please help.



It's a cruel fact that pickup makers seem to love to make colors etc different, as well as grounding opposite!. Welcome to the club.
