    Color coding on the CE 24's 85/15 TCI pickups?

    I got a set of these to put on my SE but I can't find any diagrams that tell me what the cables do. I'd assume that black/white/red/green are the same as normal 85/15, but what do I do with the extra orange wire? Looking at a picture the seller sent me of the guts of his guitar, it looks like...

    SE 24 Classic Wiring mod 85/15?

    I really like the sound of the neck pickup but want the tone rolled back on the bridge. I kind of miss the second tone control of les pauls and strats. I was thinking of wiring the tone control to the bridge pickup only. Anyone tried this or see any major down sides?
