Got a wiring diagram for my Peavey Reactor AX direct from Peavey's awesome customer service today. Only trouble is, it's meant for folks who know what they're looking at. I don't.
My main question: which pickup is which? I can't tell neck from bridge just by looking at the diagram. The rest I *may* be able to figure out on my own.
Don't know if this link will work. If not, I'll screencap the image and attach it here.

Nuts. I'll get a picture up in just a bit.

Sorry, we were unable to find the document at the original source. Verify that the document still exists.
You can also try to download the original document by clicking here (https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=1196f08dcd&view=att&th=135687a16d6cc964&attid=0.1&disp=safe&zw). Alternatively, you can view the plain HTML (automatically redirecting).
^I'm still getting this error message, any updates on the wiring diagram?

I'm guessing that the Reactor is a Tele-style guitar? If that's the case, then the smaller pickup would be the neck pup.

Yeah, the Reactor is their Tele copy. The AX model has blade humbuckers.

The green and white from each humbucker go to ground. Also the ground wire to the bridge (not shown ) goes to ground.
You can also try to Google humbucker wiring diagram.

Both pickups are humbuckers:
• Red is Hot Output to the switch for both pickups
• Green & White are connected together (insulate the soldered ends with electrical tape or heat shrink tubing)
• Black & Bare go to Ground
Here is an easier to visualize diagram (http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/wiring-diagrams/schematics.php?schematic=2h_1v_1t_3w), but Seymour Duncan uses different colours.
Without having both pickups handy, it looks to me that:
Duncan Black = Peavey Red
Duncan White= Peavey White
Duncan Green = Peavey Black
Duncan Red = Peavey Green

I think I get it. I'm going to melt some solder now, so I'll come crying back if something's amiss. Thanks guys!

Thanks for the correct version. Don't ever listen to me ( at that is what the wife says)
