How to install

Remember to test fit before soldering. if you run into issues. Contact us!!

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

For these online instructions we will be using a 4 conductor pickup for reference but the installation is all the same no matter the pickup wire.

4 conductor color code: Most common. But your may be different.

  • Black = "+" Hot
  • Red/white = Series link (Solder these together and tape off)
  • Green/Bare = "-" Ground


Bridge Pickup 1: Hot

Next, 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.


Every install is slightly different, whether it's issues witth your overall skill level, or if you have questions on what color code your pickups have. If you need any help, info, or guidance. We are here to assist you. Visit this link to contact us Click here
