Single humbucker wiring?

Anyone know where I can get a diagram for wiring a single humbucker?

Pickup is 4 wire (IBZ F2), single vol pot, no switches.

Re: Single humbucker wiring?

One of the wires is hot. Usually red. Run that to the volume.

One of them is ground (green), run that to ground, and solder the other two together (black and white).

That is the standard series way of wiring up one humbucker.
