hey all. i bought myself a shiny new Seymour Duncan JB SH4 Hum b the other day =D... planning to install it into a Washburn X40. Problem is, a] ive only ever installed an Epiphone humbucker into a ****ty strat, and b] i dunno anythign about four conductor pickup cables.
so could someone explain to me how i would install the cables for a four conductor pickup on a Washburn X40... im pretty sure those wires in the X40 will be standard, as you would find in a Les Paul perhaps.
thanks in advance.

just solder the north finish and south start together, and you have two conductor. just solder the south finish and the ground together, u got two conductor.

First solder the red and white wires together and tape them off. Next, the bare wire goes to ground (volume pot) from their it varies depending on your wiring setup. Assuming its H-H with a switch, volume and tone, your black goes to the pickup switch and your green goes to the volume pot.

Are you sure? I'm pretty certain the X40 is a HH.

I don't think Washburn even makes a HSH, although I'm not aware of all the models they've made.

ive actually tried looking for my exact model. it IS an X40 of some kind. says x40 on the headstock, on the trussrod cover, and the neck is blank, except for an X which spreads across the 11th, 12th and 13th frets. and yeha its a H/S/h config.
