Just sharing some knowledge, pls find correspondence between me and the helpfull Mr Tim below. :P

Me:
...[I just bought a NailBomb] bridge with 4 conductor. This is going in a custom guitar body which only has a bridge pickup, and there is gunna be 1 push/pull pot for vol and a coil split. And, as luck would have it, there is a nice wiring diagram in the box exactly for this purpose. I will mount the pickup with the screw poles nearest the brdge as suggested. My, question: in the supplied wiring diagram, when in split mode won't it be the slug poles that are active and not the screw poles? I find this a bit counter intuitive since I thought the screw poles where supposed to be adjustable so it would be better if they were active when in single coil mode?

Tim's reponse:
it's pretty much standard protocol for the slug coil to be active in coils split although with 4 con wiring you can effectively choose either coil. Most players prefer the slug coil as it's closer to the neck and so sounds alot warmer than the screw coil which can sound very bright on it's own.

Does any one know the measurements for the pole to pole spacing of the 7 string bridge and neck pickups?

H/S/H pickup configuration. do i need any push pull pots? atm i jus hav 1 tone 1 vol pot an a 5 way switch?
also will it need mounting backwards(bridge) or does it jus go in normally :?

That all depends on what type of switching arrangement you want.  Have a look at guitarelectronics.com for a load of different options
Advice worth what you just paid for it.

I'm considering buying a calibrated set of Aftermaths off of eBay. It has 4 conductors. The problem is I don't want to use coil tapping. I just want to use them as humbucker/humbucker with a 1 volume, 1 tone, and the 3 way selector. How would I wire it?

There are wiring diagrams on the site, but basically it's red to hot, black and bare to ground, the other two (green and white) are either already taped up or you can re-tape them and just leave them there out of the way and not touching anything.  Simple.
