How to install

Tips for an easy installation

  • Always reach out if you have questions, or need any help troubleshooting. We are the pros.
  • Test fit before soldering. Contact us if you have any issues
  • Never remove heatshrink. It's designed to be there
  • when soldering take small breaks inbetween your joints to let you iron heat back up
  • once installed. Test the controls by lightly tapping your pickup(s) with a metal object
  • Never force a knob on that doesn't fit. This can kill your pot.

Even though this instruction is using the Modern filter circuit, the install is the same for 50s, and Treble Bleed

Bridge Pickup 1: Hot

Solder the Bridge Pickup's "hot" also known as the "+" wire on the diagram to the top left lug

Neck Pickup 1: Hot

Solder your Neck pickups "Hot" to the Bottom right lug


Pickup & Tailpiece Grounds

Lastly, Solder the Neck & Bridge ground wires as well as the wire is coming from your guitars tailpiece to the casing of any pot. On this guitar the Volume was the easiest.

Output Wire Install: Hot wire

It is very important that you pay close attention to the diagram on where each output wire is soldered. Failing to connect these wires in the correct location will cause nonstop hum when the instrument is plugged in.


Next Solder the White "output" to the hot Lug

Output Wire Install: Ground wire

Lastly, Solder the (Colored) ground wire to the Inner Ground Lug

And thats it!

Test the controls before restringing the guitar by lightly taping the pickups with a metal object.
