P90’s in a Les Paul Special I

Recommended Posts

There are two P90’s in my LP yet I only see one black and one white wire  coming from the hole leading to my control cavity.

Is one wire a neck and the other the bridge? Which is which?

Anybody ever take one or both soap bars out?  What do the wires look like  coming out of the  pickups?

I’m about to replace a bad selector switch.

After a closer examination it appears that the white and blacks are jackets.

Both contain a bare ground and a white wire which I believe to be hot based on where they are soldered to.

Also, the black jacket is the bridge.

Carry on.
