Real simple question. I want to replace passive pickups with passive again.

This is my first time Changing them out so what all do I need to buy other than the pickups themselves?

Thanks guys!

Thanks. That's all I thought I needed but a friend told me I needed a wiring kit. Guess that's just for actives...

No if your going from passives to passives you can leave all the pots/caps unless you want to change them.

here is a good website for wiring diagrams

replacing picks ups is really easy you just remove one and put the new one in and match up the wires. most new pickups are 4 wire and stock ones are usually 2....they are the same thing, all you do is solder 2 of the 4 wires together and leave it.

if you bought new, then there should be a paper that tells you what wire does what.

You also need to be aware that pickups can end up out of phase if you use the wrong wires for hot and earth. No problem with a single make and follow the instructions, but if you are mixing makes it is a risk. If you want to test phase before installation you need a multimeter. If you take a chance and they do end up out of phase, just swap the wires around on one of the pickups.
