I have a set of 1985 Reissue Treble/Bass pickups and would just like to confirm the following wiring ...

Treble
Black Wire = to "HOT"
Red Wire = Insulate (tape up)
White Wire = to "GROUND"

Bass
White Wire = to "HOT"
Red Wire = Insulate (tape up)
Black Wire = to "GROUND"

Thanks in advance! :)

Bump

Concerned with black wire being "HOT" on one pickup and white wire being "HOT" on the other. :confused:

Thanks for the response, but now I'm even more confused.
I don't have a 5-way rotary.

I have a set of 1985 reissue pickups (Treble/Bass).
I'll be installing them in a Tremonti SE Custom, standard 3-way toggle, no coil tap.
This is what I found online ...

It states "If necessary, reverse the black and white wires to match the phase of the existing pickups".
The existing pickups are just two wire, so I'm not sure what they mean. :dontknow:

That's all you got? :laugh:
Okay, thanks anyway.
I'll figure it out.
