I have a LP with only a bridge pickup, it is a 2 wire pickup, 1 ground and a 1 hot, 1 Vol and ! tone Pot, I have a burstbucker bridge pup that I want to install it has 1 braided ground a black a green a red and white wirecan anyone tell me what is the best way to get this to the 2 wires I need to connect it back to the pot? I would appreciate any help, I have seen a couple of different diags, one has the black and braided to ground on the pot, the green and white soldered together and the red to the pot, is this correct or is there another way. Thanks Mike

You have a pick up that has the ability to be a split coil humbuucker.

 

That is why your pick up has 4 wires.

 

 

The green and white wires together allows the pick up to be a complete humbucker.

 

 

If that is how you want it then that is the correct way to hook it up.

 

You would have to get a push pull pot and change it in order to split the coils to take advantage of coil spliting.
