Thread: Axis humbucker wiring question.

    Axis humbucker wiring question.

    So, I have a bridge humbucker from an Axis that I am going to try in my Cutlass; I love the Axis bridge PU in anything - best bridge out there.

    My Cutlass is SSS so I'm making up a HSS scratchplate and Suhr were gracious enough to send me details of their HSS setup using a superswitch that I'm going to use.

    My question is this - both Axis PU and Suhr Humbuckers use red, white, black, green but do they represent the same coils? As far as I understand it, there's no common convention regarding this so that if I simply follow the Suhr wiring diagram with my Axis PU, I might not be doing it right?

    Thanks for any help you can give guys,

    The Axis humbucker is Dimarzio - different colour scheme. You’ll have to adjust the diagram to use different colours.

    Google "humbucker color codes". Suhr humbuckers are, AFAIK, the same as Seymour Duncan.

    Seriously helpful - thanks Gentlemen!
    So, as far as I can tell, the DiMarzio and Suhr schemes are pretty different. Lots of potential for complete screw-ups here.

    It shouldn't be too hard. I once put Suhr pickups in my Axis. Not sure if i still have the notes for matching up the color coding but will take a look. I'll post here with that info if i find it...
