    Hi everybody, looking for a little help how to wire a Baja neck pickup BWG wires to a 3 way switch of a Broadcaster/Telecaster tone blend circuit.

    From what I can understand Green and Black are grounds and Yellow is the HOT....

    Here are you both circuit pics:

    Black to me is always ground. The green on the top schematic looks to be ground as well.

    Yes, yellow would be the COIL positive, black COIL negative, green, cover (shield) grounding.
