Re: Swapping V7 for Duncan JB wiring help
Do you mean the V8? The V8 is the bridge pickup. With wiring the JB into your guitar first solder the red and white wires together. From memory the later model V series used red as hot, solder the JB's black to that spot (Should be the wire from the V8 on the last spot on the switch), depending on the vintage of the V8 though it could be white. And then wire the red/white wires on the JB to the other spot on the switch (the V8's white wire, or red depending again on the vintage). The bare and green wires of the JB go to the back of the pot to ground the pickup. Basically if the JB doesn't sound big and full you may need to switch the black and red/white wires over, no big deal.
