Installing Pickups


Pickup Color Codes

For this tutorial we will be using Bare Knuckle Color Codes. Each pickup brand uses their own set of color codes. So these colors might not match your pickups. We have included this diagram showing you all the color codes for other brands. In Order to install your pickups to the this harness you need to combine the ground and Bare Wire to make the "Ground" and then combine the two Series Wire to make the Series Link.


Seymour Duncan Pickup Color Code key

Red= H1/Hot Output

green/white= S1/Series Link

black/Bare=G1/Ground

 Solder the Red "Hot" Pickup wire to the First Lug on the potentiometer. Labeled L1 on diagram above If not sure which wire is hot please refer to your pickups manufacturers instructions. In Bare Knuckles case it is the red wire.
