Hey dudes. My buddy asked me to throw in an old humbucker into an Ibanez GIO which is HSS hooked up to a five way. It's a three conductor with a red, white, and a bare wire. I think the wiring scheme would be red to selector, white to nothing, and bare to volume but I'm not sure. Can anyone verify? Thanks, guys.
Bare wires always go to ground. But if you have an ohm meter you can verify if the bare connects to the mounting bracket and is an OPEN CIRCUIT to either other wire.

The white and red wires are the actual coils. Wire it up as normal. If you get an out-of-phase (low-output, trebly, bad) sound when the bucker is used with any other pickup, swap the red and white.
