webster Posted June 8, 2004 Report Share Posted June 8, 2004 Hi, i hope im not asking a question that has been asked before, even though i know it probably has if i it isnt a stupid question but i have looked at the ProjectGuitar site with no luck. I have a squire guitar, 3 single pickups with 1 vol and 2 tone with 5 way switch. I need to install a humbucker into the bridge position. I've done all the hard work and the pickup in installed except for the wiring. The humbucker has three wires plus a ground wire. They are red green and white. Sorry i cant give the brand cos its all at work, i wish i could remember but all i know it is pretty crap. So anyway, the pickup came with the red and white wires soldered together so i im guessing they need to stay that way. I soldered the ground on and i was playing around with the green wire on parts of the switch and the pickup gave sound if i put the wire on three different contact points i which these were |*| | |*|*|*| | | 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 (there is a chance that 1, 3, 4 and 5 work but i cant remember for sure) The points 4 and 5 were connected together and already have wires on them, wires are also on all the other places that didnt work. I had the switch all the way down when i was playing around with the wire. The problem i have is that on all those points that worked i got a very bad buzz. What am i doing wrong?
