    Screws almost always on the outside (Bridge screws near the bridge and neck pup screws near the neck), with the slugs in the inside

    I suggest going to an enchanted wood and finding a woman who lives under an evergreen in a fairy tale looking cottage who can school you in the black arts of witch guitar maintenance ;)

    Yep, what he said. That is the most common way to do it and I would recommend that way as well. But to be honest there is no right way. It will sound a little different the other way, but mainly comes into play if you're coil splitting. But you may like that better, who knows.

    I had that problem a few days ago when I changed to my warpig. According to BareKnuckle, you have to turn the pickup to know, the hook up wire on the neck pickup reverse faces the neck, the hook-up wire on the bridge pickup faces the bridge. Just like that.
