    Default wiring question about quarter pound for strat

    Hi

    I just got a new quarter pound bridge for my strat and when I opened it, I was surprised to see that the online retailer had sent me a three wire version... red, white and black... after a little research I see they have sent me a tapped version.

    I dont want to tap it, I dont have a push pull pot or a switch, I just want to wire it like a conventional pickup, hot and ground.

    How do I do this? Wire both the red and white to the hot? Or only one?

    Anybody done it this way? Thanks for any replies

    Lucky!!! You made out like a bandit. Put in a puh-pull or a switch and utilize what you've got. It may surprize you and you may really love the option to tap that pup.
