    I have a spare fender player humbucker i would like to put in another telecaster neck position. Nothing fancy or coil splitting or anything, just a basic swapping of a single coil neck with a leftover humbucker.

    A photo of the underside of the pickup and the 5 different leads should be attached. And then each of the leads visible: Black. White. Green. Red. Bare.

    Am I right in assuming GREEN goes to my lead switch, Black and white taped off and left to dangle, Red and bare soldered to the back of the pot to ground?

    I've also got a Fralin blues special bridge, so if it turns out they are out of phase i should swap the green and red leads, correct?

    I've got a multimeter and have been trying to figure this all out on my lonesome, but failing. Any help from the TDPRI community would really be appreciated.
