Humbucker wiring problem

I hope someone can help me out. I have a humbucker pickup set that I would like to install in my Epiphone Les Paul. But I bought it second hand and don't have any instructions for it. It has 5 wires: white, red, green, black and a very thick metal wire. Please help! Thank you.

Thank you! That does look the same with the colors. The make is Governor pickups. It's from Holland so maybe not so popular in US. Do I put the green and silver/metal together on the back of the volume pot?

It worked! They sent me the wiring diagrams and I installed the pickups this weekend. Sounds great! Thanks for the help.
