    Hey sjtalon I’ve got another question, why on the humbucker you Drew 5 wires getting of from it? As I’ve been seen the humbuckers usually come with 4 wires, can you explain me how do I connect another wire to get the fifth one?

    Four coil wires, and sometimes a braided, or bare wire that grounds the metal cover that then acts as a shield.

    My yellow there was a poor choice :confused:.


    So you see that is going to the back of a pot can.

    So with normal wiring of a humbucker, you just have a hot (positive) lead, that goes to the switch, and then the other COIL lead (negative) gets grounded, so usually the bare just goes with the coil ground lead, soldered together.

    If you notice in that picture, the black is with that bare wire for that grounding.

    Now with you doing the SERIES, the hb COIL negative (normally grounded), has to go to the switch now, (BLUE WIRE) because in your selector switch position THREE, it will go in series with the bridge pickup.

    Great! Thanks. Last weak I received the hardware parts like the wires, control plate, Jack, pots, etc. next week I’ll buy at least the bridge pickup, maybe the neck too, or maybe the next moth.

    thanks por the explaining.

    Either way, doesn't matter.

    See my diagram, any way you put it in the control plate, the STAGGER of the lugs, top and bottom, are the same.
