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...
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...
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...
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.
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...
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.🤣 You get home and want to just burn...
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.
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...
