Hey guys,

first post in here, yay. I'm playing an RGA8 and for the first time ever I thought I might swap out the pups for some nicer BK Aftermath pups for neck and bridge. Standard pickups in the RGA8 are active, Aftermath Pickups are passive so I kind of removed all components except the input jack from the guitar and looked for wiring schematics online and stumbled upon this.

This left me wondering a bit. Do I really only need to wire the red cable to the switch?

And another problem I stumbled upon. When trying to solder the black and ground cable to the back of the new pot the solder wont stick. What the hell? Any ideas?

Cheers

Yes only the Red wire needs to go to the switch :yesway:

If the solder won't stick normally some "Flux" helps. If you don't have that scratch the metal casing up a little. The small scratches will give the solder something to grab on to :)
