Wiring up your Porter Humbucker Pickups

Porter Humbuckers are available in braided metal output wire and 4-conductor wire. Our standard pickups come with 4 conductor wire. The wire is stripped back to reveal 4 different colored insulated wires and a bare wire. It’s important to know which wire goes well, or your either get half the pickup working, or not working at all!
