squier humbucker wiring

Recommended Posts

i recently took my squier fat strat apart to have a look inside and begin installing my pieze transducers .,

i studied the pickup wiring for a but then realised the humbucker actually has three wires coming from it , but one of them is snipped short(barely visible under the insulation) it is a red wire as far as i can remember.

what is the wire for and why is it not used?

thanks ,

I am not sure why the wire is cut, but you might check out the Seymour Duncan (www.seymourduncan.com) web site. Under support, they have a bunch of schematics for humbuckers, with various wiring configurations. You might something there.

Good luck,
