    Are there two insulated wires and a braided wire? And are the colours for both pickups the same? Can you post a picture of the pickup wire ends, as it makes it a lot easier.

    There are so many variations on the pickups supplied with the kits that it's not always easy to tell what's going on.

    Do you have, or have access to a multimeter (in case it's not obvious what's what)?

    Too big. max 1500 pixels on any one side and just less than 1MB in size. Microsoft photo can resize pictures, and the Tapatalk app can do it when downloading them. Or host elsewhere and link.

    Sounds like a 5 wire humbucker. Assuming it is Artec (may or may not be):

    Red and white together means it is pre-wired in series, you leave them as is.
    Bare will be a ground for the pickup hardware.
    Black is ground for the pickup wiring.
    Green is your hot.

    If you want to do a mod and separate the red and white, white will be a hot and red will be ground.

    If it's from a different manufacturer the hots and grounds might be reversed, since pickup makers tend to do their own thing.
