Anyone know where to find the wiring diagram on a MIM roland ready strat?

I was going to do a pickup swap and found a red and black wire coming from the roland circuit board which were disconected and have no clue where they go, I noticed the mini toggle didnt do anything when I used it with my gr-20 synth.

HELP!

Fuuny I see this, as I was swapping pickups on my RRS last night and noticed a yellow wire floating about in the pickup cavity. Can't seem to find a decent wiring diagram out there! It goes to connector CN2 if that helps......

Maybe too late for you but I've just rebuilt my Roland GC-1 and here is how its wired -

From the mixer board -

6 pin plug (only has five wires in it)

Yellow goes to patch select switch UP
Blue goes to patch select switch DOWN
Red goes to one side of the 3 way pickup select switch
White goes to the other side of the 3 way pickup select switch
Black goes to the centre of the 3 way pickup select switch

2 pin plug (next to the 6 pin plug on the board)
Black goes to the mag pickup earth terminal on the mag volume pot
White goes to the mag pickup hot terminal (centre pin) on the mag volume pot

3 pin plug (on the other side of the board , next to the 2 plugs that go to the midi socket)
White goes to the centre of the 50k midi pickup volume potentiometer
Red goes to the left terminal of the same pot (looking down on the back of the pot with the tabs at the bottom)
Black goes to the right terminal of the same pot

From the switches
Centre pin of the 3 pole pickup select switch goes to the common earth of the 2 up/down switches

Years after being posted, this is helping me out. Thanks, OP! I opened my 2002 R-R Strat because the rubber pickup “springs” were failing, and I broke one wire at a solder joint.
