I got this three string single coil pick up with the tone and volume pot and the red wire in the picture busted loose and I’m not sure where to resolder it - which of the terminals do I solder it to? that’s what I’m trying to figure out 

If anyone knows and can explain let me know I guess you could just say the left the middle or the right terminal and I’d know where to solder it.

Thanks in advance

The pickup signal wire goes to the middle lug of the volume pot. The wire that's disconnected is to the tone pot and you want to solder it to the same middle lug that the pickup is soldered to. This is known as a 50's wiring scheme.

Thanks a lot Paul! Appreciate you taking the time to look at the picture and give me your advice. I still don’t really understand the wiring on these things so I couldn’t solve the problem myself. I soldered it the way you told me it seems to be working fine. Thanks again!

No problem, we're here to help.
