    Hi all hope everyone is ok. Some help please, I am wiring a PRS for a pal and wondering how to wire the 59-09 bridge with red,black,white wires and screen to ground. I would like to wire a push pull that is in there already to the new pup to get single coil and bucker but for the life of me I am struggling. Please can anyone please help. Thanks all

    Go onto the PRS website, they certainly used to show all their wiring schematics.

    White and Black will be start and finish. One is hot, the other is ground, whichever way is in phase with the other pickup(s).

    Red will be the tap. Think of it like a 4-conductor pickup, but with the the split wires permanently connected. That's going to your push/pull for single coil operation.

    Bare is shield, connect to ground always.

    Hi, thanks for the replies. Tried PRS site and didn't have much luck but didn't have much time.
    Garret thanks that explains how I can wire it up. Cheers Barrie

    Ask @Peegoo . He posted a pickup wiring color guide a day or two ago and I think he works for PRS.

    That is correct. And @garrett is correct!

    I thank you all. He has the 57-08 in the neck and 59-09 bridge so trying to get push pull on the bridge? Lift to get s/coil. Many thanks Barrie
