Seymour Duncan JB in a Jag Stang Wiring

Post by jagstanger » Fri Nov 13, 2020 5:35 am

Hello,

I want to throw a Seymour Duncan SH4 JB in my Jag Stang. I want to keep the original switch pattern. So the original humbucker only got two wires. The JB has 5. I searched al lot in the web to find a good wiring diagram, and this is the only one, that I found is really accurate.

So red and white are soldered together and taped, black goes to the switch and green and bare are also combined and go to ground on the switch?!

Is that the right wiring?

Thanks for your help
Luke

I would wire the bare straight to ground and not the switch for phase switching since the bare is for the baseplate ground. :)

Looks generally good but like HNB said bare should go directly to ground, it's not for the coils and should just be directly grounded with any wiring (it's why you generally see these referred to as 4-conductor pickups - 4 conductors from the coils, one general baseplate/cover ground).

Thank you guys. Will try that out, once I have the JB ordered and let you know how it turned out.
