    4 Wire HB to 2 wire...Which Colors do I Use?

    Ground point is ground point- put it anywhere there. Also there is no reason electronically that the bare necessarily HAS to be right with the green, or the same place for that matter. One thing to consider with that is not to try to get too many together because all the extra heat you need to...

    Switch wiring question

    Right on. I guess it's doubtful it was a non-functioning deal as is. Four wires to solder................what could go wrong :p:p Sure there are various schemes to wiring switches, tone pots, etc., but pickups (brand/type) don't care, as long as the 1-2-3 are in the order that floats ur boat...

    Switch wiring question

    I agree, but did it not work the way it was ?? As I asked earlier. I guess I don't understand why you are questing doing something different when wiring up new pups? Sometimes a person might wire it backward, if that's the case, or flip the switch around in the control plate when they reverse...

    Nashville Tele series wiring , please help

    Just to add (a heads up) Whatever pickup you wire for the series, that is the one which has BOTH coil leads going to the switch, will have to be a three-wire. For example, a neck pup with a cover will have to have a dedicated wire, lifted from the negative coil wire, to connect to a ground point.

    Measuring pickup resistance in guitar

    Usually not enough difference to worry about, or in comparison, one would notice by ear. I have an empty cord jack I use if I want to do a check like that.

    testing a range of tone cap values

    You can do wonders with them. I converted a Dlx. Nashville to be like a Nocaster once (CS pups) and wondered how that old wiring scheme (Nocaster) would work so set it up with jumpers (test leads). Also had the tone pot a p/p to get series. I really didn't dig it enough to find the use of it...

    Has anyone tried the 5000 turn tele bridge option mentioned by Kenny Vaughan?

    Saw the Fabulous Superlatives at the Hodag (Rhinelander, WI) in '08. What a trip to see those guys ! If any of you get a chance to see them, DO NOT PASS IT UP. Kenny is a treat to see and listen to live. Makes ya sick of how effortless it is when he plays.šŸ¤£ You get home and want to just burn...

    4 Wire HB to 2 wire...Which Colors do I Use?

    Ya, strange as I haven't seen many (any?) Epi pups that don't have Epiphone stamped on the bottom. I hadn't looked at you pix before.

    4 Wire HB to 2 wire...Which Colors do I Use?

    That bare wire (braided shield) is for the cable, as well as the metal parts of the pickup, and as stated above, always gets grounded. Has nothing to do with the coils.

    4 Way with Out of Phase

    Cool beans. Just for the conversation, I would think you will want to (need to) spilt the hb, and then a p/p for the series as if you series with a hb, it often can be to dark/muddy. Do keep us posted on the project.

    I thinkin' as AJ, don't think you can pull that off with a 4w. I don't remember ever seeing or hearing of it myself FWIW.

    Bootstrap bridge pickup wiring question

    Blue is a dedicated bridge plate ground. Go to the back of a pot with that one. I'm checking, but the black and white are COIL hot (positive) and neutral (ground) leads. Thinkin' the black would be the ground. You could just test lead try it like that. IDK what your neck pickup is so you may...
