    Default colour codes for wiring

    hi everyone, been a long time since i posted here.

    i've just ordered a boutique set of custom wound pickups, the colour scheme that came with them is as follows:



    I was wondering if anyone here could translate that into Seymour Duncan's colour code, as I am swapping out the SD's which were wired to 4 push/pull pots.

    I think SD wires were red, white, black and green. Are they identical to the ones i posted?

    cheers...

    Go by this diagram, since it's where they took that picture:

    Looks like either Gibson or Lawrence (and why do people feel the need to not mention what "boutique" gear they're referencing specifically - is it the "boutique mystique"?) so look at the one that says Seymour Duncan and then look at yours.

    cheers guys...

    I will happily divulge info about them

    They have been hand wound to my custom requests by Declan from RD Pickups. They have a website but are just starting up.

    I didn't mention who they are made by since i didn't think anyone would have heard of them yet. They are based in Ireland and the hype surrounding them already made me keen to buy a set.

    I'll happily write a review later once i've received them. fingers crossed
