V6F pickup wiring help...

HI folks

I have a V6F pickup from my 1451NC Guitar I thought I would chuck in another crappy guitar I have laying around but can't tell which is the hot, and which is the split? It has 3 wires, Bare, White, Red? Any help would be super appreciated as I understand Ibanez changed colors a lot. :-?

Re: V6F pickup wiring help...

Okay, well I watched a few videos and think RED is hot/humbucker and White is single/split. I came to this conclusion measuring resistance with a meter and appears red had twice the resitence to ground vs the white. I just took the white white and taped it up/not attaching to anything, RED is on the POT (ground on top). Think I'm good, sounds good, no serious hum.
