    I'm still building my Red frankenstrat but I've never tried wiring pickups before. I'm going to put the Seymour Dunc. Double custom in it. It seems that it should be simple but not real sure especially when it comes to the grounding part.
    I just don't want to get shocked or something.

    unless you want to coil tap and I'm sure you don't on the franky you want to solder the red\white wires together and tape them off out of the way this activates both coils in the pickup making it a humbucker (it puts them in series), solder together the green and the bare shield wire, now as you look at the bottom of the volume pot, hold it right in front of your face with the 3 legs pointed down, the leg on your far left gets the black wire from the pickup, the leg in the middle is the hot to the outputjack, the leg on the far right is the ground or neutral leg, everything else gets soldered to it, i.e. all the sheilds grounds, ground from the output jack etc and jumper from that leg to the housing of the pot, the newer switchcraft pots you don't have to do this to, if there is a little plastic washer type piece in the center of the back of the pot you don't need to jumper to the housing. do not forget to solder a piece from that ground leg to the spring claw on the back of the guitar this will silence your guitar when you are touching the strings, very annoying without it.
    any trouble email me privatly your phone number and I'll call ya and talk ya thru it, and there is nothing to worry about your not hooking up a 460 3 phase motor [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Thanks rols! It makes more sense now, I would have had my wires all connected wrong on the pot.
    The guitar originally had to Dimarzio SuperDistortions at the neck and bridge position with a single coil in the middle. And that was confusing as hell trying look at that as a guideline wires all over the place and capacitor
    stuck on a treble pot. I figured a single humbucker and volume knob would be a easier task for a first timer.
    Thanks Again! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    same idea as above but you solder the braided part of your shielded wire to the top of your volume pot. The actual hot end goes to your switch.
