PREWIRED TOGGLE SWITCH INSTRUCTIONS
Please leave the heatshrink that binds all the wires intact until you have fed the switch assembly and wires completely thru your guitar’s pickup/cavoty routes. This will ensure a smoother install and also protect the wires from damage during the install process. Once you feed the wires into the control cavity, leave a couple inches of slack to push back into the wire route for future use if need be. To remove the outer gray jacket, simply score the outer gray jacket with some scissors or some wire strippers. Do not cut all the way thru this as you do not want to damage any of the internal wires. Once you score the outer jacket pull of the excess jacket that you don’t need. Remove the excess inner foil (unwrap neatly then cut off near the beginning of the outer jacket. Next solder the inner wires as outlined below:
- BLACK & BARE WIRE - (Grounds) Solder the bare wire to the back of the closest pot, & the black wire to the RING of the Jack. (Make sure that the bare is not touching anything that will get grounded out.
- WHITE WIRE - (Main Signal Hot) Solder to the TIP of the Jack.
- GREEN WIRE - (Neck Hot from Switch) Solder to the middle lug of the NECK volume pot.
- RED WIRE - (Bridge Hot from Switch) Solder to the middle lug of the BRIDGE volume pot.
