wondering if someone can help me figure out what goes where with the ibanez switch and the gibson 490r neck pickup…it is wired 1v, 1t, this 5-way switch and 2 humbuckers…normal positions for 1,3,5…position 4 is neck in parallel and 2 is the inner coils of both pickups…i would like to maintain the same wiring scheme but im not sure what the colors indicate compared to the origin ibanez quantum pickups that came in it…please help! i’ve included pictures of how it was originally wired

The red is the hot on the Gibson pickup and white and green would be tied together without splitting the coil with black being ground. I linked a page with the color codes so the Gibson north coil would be red and white, the south coil would be green and black. The Ibanez color on that page have a blue for ground which I don't see on your pictures but I would guess that the green might be it.
