2 conductor humbucker wiring
« on: May 02, 2010, 02:56:41 PM »
Just got a Crawler, 2 conductor. It's going to be going into my Strat. How do I wire it in? I haven't wired in a 2 conductor for quite some time and I've forgotten how.

Braid to the back of a pot, cloth-covered wire to the switch.  I have to say I hate soldering braided wire.

Cheers Phil, I knew I had to do something with the cloth. I remember not liking working with 2 conductor but the end result should be worth it

Good luck!  I reckon the Crawler will sound good in a Strat, I found it a bit dark in an LP but most humbuckers seem a lot brighter in bolt-ons.  :D
