    Default Help Wiring?

    Alright, I need to know how to wire a set of Duncan Hot Rails, into a B.C. Rich Warlock, The pickups it had in it were crap, but my problem is, the wiring diagram for the hot rails show it running through 4 pots, How would I wire them into 2 pots?
    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Which exact model of Warlock do you have? What control layout? How many original pickups?

    Have you offered up a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails replacement pickup for Stratocaster to the humbucker-sized pickup cavities of the B. C. Rich?

    Hot goes to the switch, red/white soldered & taped, green/bare to earth (back of pot usually).

    Not sure about colour codes (though he probably knows what hes saying), but that surely is the right idea.... Multiple volumes / tones = pickups to their respective pots, pots to switch wiring... For master volumes and tones, those sit after the switch in the schematic, affecting whichever pickup the switch connects to them - hence, wire hots to switch

    just white and red together
    and black is hot - to the 3 way pin.
    green is ground - to some ground place (example: housing of 3 way switch, or pots).

    Here you have a color coding:
