I am trying to wire a Seymour Duncan '59 Humbucker into this setup:


as you can see, there needs to be a grounded wire and a "hot" wire. The duncan only has one wire, a shielded wire which i am told it the "hot" wire. So...

What do I ground?

the sheild goes to ground, the other wire is the hot wire


in the setup you draw there you'd have the humbucker wired in series, which would give you more of a singlecoily sound. Thats not possible unless you have a 4 conductor humbuckers.
