Thread: PRS Pickup wiring

    PRS Pickup wiring

    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.

    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 ...
    http://www.prsguitars.com/csc/schematics/pickups.pdf

    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.
