i have a 500XL and im used to Seymour duncan buckers and Single coils so im a little confused which wire goes which.

theres the white, green, bare braided, red and black. the white and green are soldered together so i assume they just get electrical taped around and left like that and the bare and the red get grounded and the black goes to the pot???

Checking out Guitar Electronics , it says that Lawrence (I'm assuming Bill Lawrence) pickups are wired like this.

I don't understand. The North and South labels there are just to show which coil is which. Has nothing to do with the wiring.

Umm... It's not? Peavey also is, as well as "Shadow".

Regardless, the polarity of the humbucker has very little to do with the functionality of it. Unless you coil split it, and use it with the single coil or another humbucker that's split.

Yeah, I was gonna say 'except if...' but that'd just cofuse the fellow.

I was kind of unclear with my first sentence.

Peavey(Wolfgang) has the screw side's polarity being north, the same with Shadow.
