Re: Seymour duncan Blackout wiring wuestion
I just wired up the blackout's in my rgt42 last night and had this same issue trying to figure out how to wire them up to the 5 way switch. You wire them up exactly as the supplied diagram but for the white wires that go from the pickups to the switch you need to put the bridge on the farthest left tab then skip a tab and solder the neck to the 3rd tab. The 4th tab is the wire that hooks up to the left volume pot tab. skip the 5then the 6th is the ground that gets soldered onto the top of the vol pot. 7th and 8th aren't used.
I was kinda pissed when I went to insert the pots into the body as they are bigger where the threads are and require you to drill out the hole maybe another 1/8" or so. Slightly chipped my paint off but it gets covered up by the knobs.
Forgot, the switch will then work like this. from left to right. 1 neck, 2 neck, 3 neck and bridge, 4 bridge, 5 bridge.
