I just bought some new pickups, bareknuckle nailbomb set and im having trouble figuring out where i need to solder the wires, its my first time doing it!

Basically my old washburn x50 pickups had three wires, one grouned to the volume, one connected to the tone (which is push/pull) and one to the switch, simple! The new ones however only have 2 wires hence the problem, i dont know how to connect it all together!

Ive searched for hours looking at diagrams but i still dont know for sure where they go, please help!!

You must have got instructions with the bareknuckle pu's, no? If you didn't you should contact Bareknuckle pickups for them to send you one. Should be included.

You'll come a long way with a multimeter so that you can measure the pins of a switch to know which pins goes for each position.

Did you order 4 conductor or braided 2 conductor wiring from Bareknuckle?!?

If you bought a 2 conductor wiring then the wiring is simple, but you won't be able to coil split!!!

I think you should first check out with them mate, they should be able to give you detailed instructions on how to install them if they manufacture them. Just describe (or take a photo) of your wiring inside the guitar and send them. They should know what goes where.

OH 2 conductor is easy to install!

Just solder the inner cable to the volume knob contact and the outer braiding needs to be soldered on top of the knob to ground it.

Attached Image

The red circle shows where to ground and the white where to connect!

Much appreciated, just out of curiosity, how would you do it if it was a 4 conductor?

Depends what you wanna do with your 4 conductor...

Standard: 1 ground, 1 connect and the other 2 soldered together
Coil Tap: 2 go to the switch, 1 ground , 1 connect
