    Wiring Help!! Please.

    Alright, so basically I've wired many guitars before with little or no problems and now I'm getting really frustrated. I have a Duncan Custom Custom humbucker with the 4 conductor wires rather than the one braided wire and I need to hook it into ONE single 500k volume pot and then directly to the output.

    I've looked at all the instructions and tried everything but I've just been getting buzz and feedback. Can anyone give me a quick step by step instruction on what I should be wiring to what and how I should do it. If you could that would be unbelievably awesome!! PLEASE!! I've literally been at this wiring job since about 9 am this morning with no luck.

    So... coming out of the duncan pickup are Black, Red, White, Green and Bare wires

    (Please don't tell me to seek a professional to do this because I'd rather do it myself and get the hang out if, as I've always done in the past. Believe me I won't wreck anything.)

    THANKS EVERYONE!!!

    Mine's about the same as Rick's.
    I've got the right lug (facing the pot) pulled in to the pot
    with green and bare soldered to it. R&W Taped off.
    Black on left lug (facing pot). Then you got your top of pot
    by third lug pulled in to the jack & then from the middle
    lug to the jack.
    FUCK THE DUMB SHIT!!!!

    the two extra are for coil tapping if you have a switch capable.

    by just tying them together as stated, you now have the same setup as all your other pickups... in one end of the coil and out the other end of the OTHER coil.... and a ground.

    as long as you get the colors right, should not have any problems.

    Alright got it! Thanks for all the help guys, it's been much appreciated!! Just one last question... when I turn up the volume on the guitar i get a bit of buzzing in the background still, it just sounds very hot... is this normal for a Duncan Custom Custom? Or could there be a flaw in my wiring?
