View Full Version : Wiring a pikcup direct to the output
05-30-2006, 08:28 PM
How do I wire a pickup directly to my out put, not pots or anything. I have an old oladed pickgaurd and I feel like taking one of the p-90's and the output and put them on my acoustic. What I want to do is create a plexiglass contraption for the soundhole, put my pickup in there and run my output wire down the body and just tape it. No cutting or drilling is what I want, something I can take off with no probs.

put the hot lead from the pup to the tip connecter on the jack, and the ground lead to the sleeve connecter.

Okay I am a bit confused. I have a red wire, a white wire and thoes are wrapped with a silver wire and it's all in a grey wrap. So which wire is which?

Well I figured it out by trial and error. Took the white wire, wrapped it to the silver, put my jack on to a cable, tested out which wire went where, soldered it.Now it works.
