    Default Wiring question

    I've been looking for a wiring diagram but haven't had any luck.

    I've got an SD 78 that I'm looking to drop into a guitar that has a single coil in the middle position and humbucker in the neck. Since the 78 is a single wire pickup, would I simply ground the braided wire to say the volume pot and solder the bare wire to the pickup switch? Is it that easy or am I missing something?

    If there is just one lead the lead will be hot and goes to the pot or in this case switch. Usually the plain (non covered) wire is the ground but it varies from pup to pup.

    Basically, you are right, one gets grounded and the other goes to the switch. Just make sure you have the right ones.
