I'm in the home stretch guys... I'm almost done converting from actives to passives!
Just a couple questions:
Will grounding to the usual trem claw in the back still work if I'm using noiseless springs?
They seem to be coated and my brain just says it might not fly. I'm weird, I know.
Second, what's different about this diagram when it comes to BKPs?
I'm installing a Painkiller and I want to make sure I've got the color coding right.
EDIT: I also want to know about the solder blob on the right. Am I also grounding that third tip of the volume pot to the back?

For BKP's, I'm not sure of the coil split... But I'm sure someone here could tell you more about it thanme, or perhaps you can get it right from BKP(???). I know that a normal humbucker for BKP is green & white soldered together, black and bare to the pot casing fro ground, and the red is the hot output, but again, the coil split I"m unsure of...

As for grounding the trem claw, yes everything must be grounded whether you use noiseless springs or not. Actives do not require a bridge ground, but all passive systems do. And besides, your soldering the ground wire to the trem claw itself, not the springs themselves.

And yes that third pin is getting bent back and being soldered to the pot casing.

I have junk Ibanez INF pickups i pulled out of my RG370DXL in favor of a duncan full shred and custom, (left in the stock center single coil for now) the INF humbuckers are only 3 wire (Red, white, black) Black i have easily found out is ground, does this mean red is hot and the white is for the various coil taps configurations?

Never mind, answer found below:

Lundgren:
North Start = BLUE
North Finish = YELLOW
South Start = RED
South Finish = GREEN

Shoot Tim an Email and explain what you want to do. I think his codes are the same as SD but 100% on that. As far as the grounding I personally would ground to the trem claw and the back of the pot specially if you are gonna tap the pup. As far as the lug to pot yes you must do that. I usually take a piece of wire and lay it from lug to pot.

Anybody found one of these for Carvin Pups? I saw a thread about it a while back but all the links were borked.
