About this Artist BullBucker Electric Guitar Humbucker 5 Wire Pickup Bridge - Chrome Covered
Based on the popular JB model, this bridge pickup has a fairly high output and is very versatile. Great for everything from blues to heavy metal. Provides slammin' output with singing highs, aggressive harmonics, and can retain clear crisp cleans while being able to get real dirty. Pairs well with our BullBucker Neck Pickup.
Works especially well mahogany body guitars with rosewood fingerboards. They are wax potted and can be used as Split Coil Humbuckers which allows the humbucker to effectively become a single coil. All Artist Bullbucker humbuckers have five-conductor hookup wires and use the same standard wire colour code.
Top Coil Polarity: North
Bottom Coil Polarity: South
Ground Wire: Thicker Black wire
North start: Thinner Black wire (Also known as Inside Slug wire)
North finish: White wire (outside slug wire)
South finish: Red wire (Outside screw wire)
South start: Yellow wire (Also known as Inside Screw wire) This is your Hot wire.
To use this as a standard humbucker in series configuration, the White & Red wires are soldered together and taped; both Black wires are grounded and Yellow is Hot Output.
If you want to coil-split, then attach the Red and White wires to the coil switch. This means that when coil splitting, Black and White are not involved because they are both grounded, which deactivates the North coil.
To split to the North coil, the process is much the same, but you'll switch the position of the thin black and yellow wires, making the thin black wire the Hot start, and the yellow wire will be grounded. This means when the switch is activated, both Red and Yellow are grounded, deactivating the South coil.
