Hi ,I've just bought an unbranded dual rail pickup with 4 wires, that is a green and a red twisted together the a single white and a single black.
I don't plan to use volume or tone pots, so will want to wire direct to the output Jack probably bridging the Jack with a capacitor. Unless I need to use a switch to get the humbucker to work.l
Would anyone be kind enough to tell me the best way to wire it up.

I would've very grateful for any or all help, as I don't really know my way around wiring diagrams.

Thanks In Advance
Phil

Tape off the twisted wires. The black is the ground, goes to the ring on the jack, the white goes to the tip... no need to use a capacitor ...
Thanks very much for that John, will that be in hum bucking mode. ?

yes

Thank you so much for your helpful responses, I can crack on tommorow, and get the pickup fitted.
Thanks Phil.

Your welcome.
