Post Guitar Wiring Question
I'm trying to make my sg wiring with 1 Volume, 3 way switch, 2 Humbuckers. I got rid of the 2 tone knobs, but the problem is the pickup wires are like single coil pickups. (an inner wire and an outer). Should I just add the other pickup wires on the other volume knob? can anyone help me?

As far as I'm aware if the humbucker only has 2 wires then 1 should be your hot wire and one should be grounded (as well as the third bare wire). In the case of the 3 way toggle switch you should ground it on there since the hot should be connected to the toggle switch anyway but any grounding is good. :mrgreen:

With your two-wire pickups, the inner wire should the hot, and the outer wire should be the ground. --Jason
