Pickup Install

The Front is going to be the Neck Pickup (Switch on the left in the photo above)  and the back switch will be the Bridge Pickup. The Switch assembly will involve 6 soldering joints, 2 for each pickup and 2 combining the switch with the controls

neck Pickup Install

Starting with the Neck Pickup, solder the Hot Output Wire to the open slot labeled as 2 or 3 on our diagram the right. Next, solder your pickups Ground Wire to the open slot on the right side of the switch labeled 7 or 6 in the diagram.

Repeat these steps with the Bridge Pickup on the Bridge Switch

Most important Part

Solder the Ground Wire coming from your guitars bridge to the casing of the volume pot. This will ground the whole guitar stopping all buzzing when touching the bridge.

That's It!

You can test if the wiring is working by going through the controls while lightly tapping the pickups with a metal object. If you have any questions feel free to contact us!
