Wiring in a new 5-way (Help ASAP, please)

Hey there.

My RG570 has the stock V1,S1,V2 setup. The 5-way needs to be replaced, and I have a Fender standard 5-way ready to go in.

My problem is how to wire it up. I went to Seymour Duncan's website and found a wiring diagram for what I want to do. The only trouble is that it uses pickups with 4-conductors. My saving grace is that it doesn't appear to actually be using the extra conductor.

Can someone scope this out and tell me what needs to be changed? Each of the stock pickups in my RG570 has a red, white, and ground wire. Thanks.

Even though it's for single coils, it'll still work because the missing wires are joined internally in the pickup.

Re: Wiring in a new 5-way (Help ASAP, please)

So, with my red, white, and ground cables coming out of each pickup... the red is hot, so each red would go on the left side of the switch. I'm not sure what to do with the white cables if the ground cables are what I ground to the pot shell.

Basically:

Mine / Theirs
Red = White
White = ?
Ground = Black?

The white will get grounded along with the bare wire.

You said they were internally connected, so will I have to actually ground them all or just tape off the white wires? Or does it really matter?
