Here's another one of my "you don't know this already??" questions, but how do I measure my 4-lead pickup wires with a multimeter? I buy these cheap Chinese pups and they usually have a lone black wire (output?), plus green and bare together (ground?) and red and white together (series link?). I'm trying to do a series/parallel split with them, but it's not working. At first, I thought it was the switch, but this doesn't appear to be the case.
I should be able to split the red/white wires to opposing middle lugs on a DPDT with one wire running diagonally from a mid lug to the upper opposing lug while black and green attach to each opposing bottom lugs, correct? Then a ground wire connects switch to ground and a second opposing wire goes from black output to my lever switch, yes? How do I determine which wires on my pup are working or not or which lugs on my switch are busted or not? Thanks!
Ok, I'm pretty sure I know what's up. I measured red/white with black and I'm getting a lousy 4 ohms of resistance. I measure white and black and get 4 ohms. I measure red and black and get nothing. So my red wire is no good, correct?
