How to install
This instruction works for a 50s wiring kit
STARTING WITH THE SWITCH WIRES
Before we start. Lets talk about the switch color code.
- Red/N = Rhythm/Neck
- Yellow/O = Outjack Jack
- Blue/B = Bridge
- Black/G = Ground
Don't install the pots in the guitar yet, instead fish the switch wires through the cavity.
Solder the red Neck wire to the Top right Lug
Next, solder the Black Cloth wire to the Middle lug next to your neck joint
Solder the Blue Bridge wire to the Bottom Left Lug
Solder the yellow Output wire to the two Middle lugs on the opposite side of the switch. Make sure the solder is touching both sides of the lugs.
Install the switch into the cavity. Be Careful not to bend the switches arms when installing and to make sure the cavity walls, or the braided wire is not touching the switch as all of this can cause a "short" in your switch.
Starting with the Bridge pickup
Solder your pickups "Hot/+" to the far left lug on the Volume Pot.
Solder the "Ground/-" to the casing on the Volume Pot. If using a braided wire style pickup make sure the braided part of the wire is away from the hot joint you previously soldered as not doing so can kill the pickups signal.
Repeat these steps with the Neck Pickup on the Neck Volume
Finishing the installation
Solder the wire coming from your guitars Tailpeice to the casing of any pot. On this example the Neck volume was the easiest. If your cavity is Shielded. Add a Jumper wire from the shielding to the wiring.
