I am about to wire up my guitar. I am wiring my pickups like the diagram below this post but I am not sure how to wire the rest. Can somebody finish making me an easy diangram like the one below or post a diagram for my pickup and one volume pot and jack? Thanks a lot. I am a noob at wiring!

Super-easy diagram:


You will have to wire you single coils so they are wired in series, you do this by taking the HOT on PUP 1, and connecting it the GROUND on PUP 2.

Now the signal will flow through both of the pickups.

Also, be sure to use you middle pickup with either the neck or the bridge, this way you will get opposed polarity= hum-reducing.

Good luck!

edit: you will also have to make the coils stick together, you can just glue them together using some superglue, if you don't want to put them back on your strat.

And I assume you know your way to wire this up from here?

Just for the hell of it... Where did anyone even say the word serial? Try your ctrl+f, I did not find anything like it. =)

Are you going to be able to fit the pickups in there? single coils next to each other are wider than a humbucker because of the bobbins.


True that, but a simple but radical idea would be to just get rid of the bobbins?


To OP: Are the pickups going to be mounted on the wood of the guitar, or on the pickguard?

^Yeah I know what a bobbin is. But you can still cut everything that does not have any wires attatched to it, and attatch the single coils to eachother. I guess that the bobbins will still be troubleing, but this can be solver with just attatching the single coils with the bobbins outwards, if you know what I mean. I don't know how that would sound though, as long as the pole pieces are not staggered, it shouln't matter too much. Especially as this is just a replacement pup, until the real deal arrives.

but if u had two single coils in series, wouldn't the output be freaking HOT?

here...i'll draw you a diagram:


You can't just go around cutting bobbins...the wire is ATTACHED to the bobbin. you cut it, and the wire is ****ed. and even if you could cut all the unnecessary bobbin, it would still be wider than a normal humbucker pickup, thus not fitting in the third picture...

sorry to bring this post back, but I just looked at my pups and they each have one black wire with another wire inside of it. How do I know what is what? After I figure this out, do I just solder the two wires from the pups to the tabs on the volume pot? thanks!

the wire inside is the hot signal that u connect to ur switch. the wire covering it on the outside is the ground wire. u ground that part.

That was even funnier when I realized it was in the picture in your own post.
