Misc Quesion and Wiring help needed
« on: December 30, 2010, 12:00:44 PM »
I have 2 Bk PUPs - painkiller and a nailbomb  how can i tell which is which ?

I have an old Charvel Srat which currenly has what i think is the painkiller in it but its very very noisey so i think i may have missed a ground or something but i also bought a copper shielding kit from stew mac which i am going to install later today.. For sake of getting through this post i am going to assume its 4 conductor as the nailbom i have not installed is (i think) looking at the wires coming out of it ...  nailbomb has white/green taped up, red, balck and silver taped( had this insntalled in another charvel) Assuming the painkiller has simialr wires (will post pic later if not) what goes where...? below is what the charvel has ..

1 Volumn (500k) i believe i have a 250 also if it matters and i should switch them?
3 on off toggles
input jack


I has 2 SS in it but i did no hook them up and cut he wires safe to assume these would not cause any extra noise correct?
Thanks !
