Yet another thread asking for help with pickup wiring.
« on: October 07, 2008, 07:41:39 PM »
I'm replacing the pickups on my Ibanez S7420 and can't really follow the instructions with the pickups.  I've included a picture below to show the old wiring and I'm just after some advice on which wires to solder where.

Here is the pic:




I've pointed out the old red and white wires on the 5-way switch where I removed the old pickup, there was also a braided bare metal wire connected to the volume pot that I'm guessing was the ground. 

On my painkiller I have the red wire, green and white (soldered together and insulated), black wire, and bare metal wire.

The way I was going to wire it up was like so:

Old wires - New Wires
Red          - Red
White       - Black
Braided wire - Bare metal wire (Ground)
Green & White - Disconnected

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
