Im on my 5th build. As of now I have been using pre-wired pickups I’ve gotten off of cbgitty. I bought some black humbucker type pickups and a three way pickup KMISE harness. The harness is wired together. I need help on where to solder the pickups to the harness. Yes I’ve looked all over for diagrams but it’s all confusing. The pickups are the FOXNOVO professional sealed humbuckers. They have one wired (one is black and the other pickup has a red one) inside the wire is a braided wired and another colored wired inside.

Maybe a picture? braided wire is the shield(ground) 

The braided wire is ground and the coated wire is hot.

I attached the pictures to the original post as well as this post.



Image result for how to wire a 3 way guitar toggle switch

your selector switch looks like this one. the lead soldered to the switch is the output. solder the grounds of the humbuckers to the same lug the output shield is soldered to. then solder the hot lead from one pickup to the left side lug and the other to the right side. selector switch should now give both in centre position and left or right will select one or the other of the pickups.doesnt really matter which is soldered to which lug. what will matter is the way you mount the switch.. just spin it 180 if you get neck when you thought you were picking

Thanks a lot for the quick responses.  I will try it out after work today!
