GregP Posted April 20, 2006 Report Share Posted April 20, 2006 I have a tele-style bridge pickup, but it's not 2-conductor like typical similar pickups. My understanding is that the bare is likely just shielding (non-conductor), and that it really doesn't matter which of the other two wires is "hot" and which is "ground". However, I just wanted to be sure. If I'm not mistaken, switching them around changes the polarity (?), but in my setup that shouldn't matter, as it'll be either alone, or with a "full" humbucker (not tapped). The crux of the question is simply this: 1. Am I correct that it doesn't really matter which wire is which? 2. Despite the answer to #1, is there a colour that is more COMMONLY ground in a red/white setup (black/white, from what I understand, has different conventions) Thanks!
