This is the way most aftermarket pickups are set up. Its to accommodate different wiring setups like coil splitting.

Whether the pickup is a Duncan or not does not make a difference. Make sure you solder the red and white wires together(the ones together in the diagram) and cover the joint with heat shrink or electrical tape.

    I am replacing an input jack on Dean ML. However, the old one was not there and I need to know which wire is positive and which is negative. There is a clear coated wire and a silver white coated w

    With standard color coding of wiring, the clear coated should be the negative ground. However, this is not always a guaranteed bet. If you just want the pickup polarity, use a meter on ohms or continuity and test each wire to the pickup body, presuming the body is metal. The body should be ground. Otherwise try

    Will volume and tone knobs for a Gibson fit on a Washburn HB30? Is the shaft and spline the same?

    Yes, Some gibson electric's have long shaft pot's, they will still fit but you will need to use another nut to adjust the pot's so they do not stick through the body to far. Knobs should fit unless the old gibson's are solid shaft. Then you will need new knobs. Many guitar parts places on net to order standard pots and even wiring kits.

    Can i fit EMG 81 and 85 into my Washburn PS600 without much hassle or soldering? They currently have Egnator humbucker pickups installed as stock.

    EMGs have quick-connect wires now so that part shouldn't be much trouble. You will however have to carve out a cavity for a 9v battery and wire it to the pickups (you might be able to put it under the pickguard as well) . If you are worried about this I suggest you have it done professionally.

    I have a washburn rr 2v and when it is plugged into an amp there is no sound but all the wires are connected in the back and the pickups are still magnetic

    Here are some things to check:
    - Are all volume controls turned up 1/2-way? - Try a different guitar patch cable. - Does your amp have remote switchable inputs? Is your guitar plugged into the *active* channel on the amp? - Is the amp turned on?
