So a while ago I bought a pair of GFs's blowout pups for my les paul, however the wires didn't fit so it sat on the work bench untouched. I went back last night with the intention of giving it another go, but I found the wires were all chewed up, I guess a mouse got at them. I had to trim the leads and I'm now left with about 4 inches of leade per pickup left. What I want to know is if there is a way I can remove the leads completely and solder on new ones turning it from a 4 wire lead into just a 2 wire one? If so I'm gonna need to know which wire to solder where on the pickup. Phil or Cord could you help me out with this?

are you sure you only want 2 wire? because you could just continue the current wires with new wire and still have the options.

yes I am sure I only want 2 wire. I am not going to do any coil tapping on this guitar, now or in the future. That tutorial is for going from 2 wire to 4 wire which is the opposite of what I want to do. I want to only have 2 22 guage wires running from each pup otherwise I wont be able to get the wires through.

Do the 4-wire and just tape off the extras in the pickup cavity?

it already is 4 wire, I only have 4 inches of lead left though. I would rather solder directly at the point the wire needs to go than solder wire to wire

I think you could just point-solder them. What's the worst that could happen? (Yes I know this is bad advice, but it's basically the only option you have.)
