    Help a brotha out!? Pickup wiring.

    I've only ever changed pickups using the EMG quick connect system . Recently I got a nailbomb and want to swap it out for a JB in the bridge to see what all of the buzz is about.

    However, I have no idea where to start. It's a push/pull controlling pickup switching and the volume of two humbuckers. There aren't any wiring diagrams for this that I can find and I have no idea where to start on my own.

    Any ideas ?

    the blue wires are the hots from your pickups, tape the coil ends together, and run the bare and start to ground, like any other wiring diagram. send the green connections to ground, the middle lug of the pot to the jack. this is a little nicer than some of the ones i found online, because it wont just cut the pickup when its not the selected one, but it will actually rout it back to ground
