I was wondering how I would wire up the PRS 250 pickups in a CU24 with 5 way rotary since the bass pickup is braided 2 conductor and the treble pickup is 4 conductor?? I'm only doing this for my friend since I'm trading him my CU24 with 57/08's for his SC250 with 250 pickups. But I'm putting the 57/08's in the SC250 (yall think it'll sound like my old 245?) and then putting his 250 pickups in my CU24 with 5 way rotary.

So I'm just wondering if I would loose position 4 on the rotary of the CU24? Is there any way I can wire the SC250 pups with the CU24 5-way rotary?

ANY help would be really appreciative!! I'm going to attempt this tomorrow.

You could make the 2 wire pickup into a 4 wire(google) then you shouldn't have a problem with the 5 way rotary switch.

Try this

With the pickup are in their sock form, the bass (neck) pickup cannot wired to a 5 way switch, it does not have the necessary coil tap wires.
