Hey guys, I'm in the process on installing a Dragonfire active (Ebay EMG copy) single coil in my MV300 to replace the EMG-HZ and I've run into a few issues. First off I don't have any diagrams and secondly I don't know what the previous owner did to wire the EMG-85 in but it doesn't look right at all so I'm gonna start from scratch.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for a wiring diagram using a switch like this: http://www.drehvan.com/images/chrome...way_switch.jpg, and EMG-85, two 25k pots (one volume and one tone), and the Dragonfire S single coil (has three leads; one red that goes to the battery clip, one bare, and one white).
I'll get some pictures up soon. Any help will be much appreciated
Never heard of an active pickup with a ground lead.
I'll draw you up a diagram in a minute, but I'll describe it quickly:
all reds to red on battery clip. black from battery clip to ring on output jack. white from neck pickup to one side of selector, white from EMG to the other side. Ourput from switch to volume and tone, to output. Earth back of pots and tie to output sleeve, along with the neck pickup (...I think. Actives with a ground...)
