So.. I'm building my first guitar, it has a really simple wiring schematic.

Should be something like this...
http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/schematics/1hum_1vol.html

I'm using all the same parts mentioned in that diagram... 500k potentiometer, SH4 JB seymour duncan pickup, monojack.

Three questions-- first, what kind of wire do I use to connect the jack to the potentiometer, and which brand is best?

Second, does the diagram suggest that I bend one of the three metal parts, which are a part of the potentiometer, back onto the bottom of the potentiometer and solder it?

Finally- is the SH4 JB a single conductor humbucker?

22 gauge insulated multi-strand wire should be exactly what you're looking for

Where'd Jimmy Page go The Random Hero? (At least I think it was Jimmy Page, or was it Slash?)

Don't worry... I'll get your photos up once I have all the stuff.. I'm still waiting for the pickup to come. Stewmac sent me really beat up pickguard material so I have to send it back. Also, the guy I bought the wood from hasn't got it to us yet (which has taken like a month.)

THANK YOU everyone.

EDIT: One last thing... are those green and white wires supposed to be soldered on the back of the potentiometer?

bare and green are grounded.
