All Seymour Duncan humbuckers with four-conductor hookup wires incorporate a standard wire color code. Green = beginning of adjustable coil Red = finish of adjustable coil Black = beginning of stud coil White = finish of stud coil For standard series humbucking operation on a 4-Conductor wired humbucker the White & Red wires are soldered together and taped; Green is ground and Black is Hot Output. The bare wire is also grounded.
Maybe I'm not reading or understanding this correctly, but it seems to me that green would be -, red would be +, black would be -, and white would be +. So to connect white & red together would be to wire the humbucker in series, out of phase, no? Wouldn't the correct way be to connect red & black, to wire it in series, in phase?
okay, i suppose that makes sense. so, even though it appears to be series out of phase, because the magnet is reversed, it is actually series in phase.
part two then - I have two Seymour Duncan HBs. the neck is a two conductor braid. The bridge, i recently discovered, is actually a 4 conductor HB, so instead of putting a single coil in the mid position, i'm simply going to put a tap on the bridge HB.
can you see anything wrong in theory or practicality with this? ps. ignore all the writing on this diagram. i didn't update it when I changed the diagram.
