    Hey Everyone,

    I recently purchased a new set of 57/08 pickups to install into my 2005 McCarty. The original McCarty pickups were just two wires and the 57/08 pickups are four wires. I believe I have this correct based on some other posts here:

    Neck/Bass Pickup:
    * Black = Ground
    * White = Hot
    Red = Coil Tap
    Braid = Ground

    Bridge/Treble Pickup:
    * Black = Hot
    * White = Ground
    Red = Coil Tap
    Braid = Ground

    I installed the pickups and it sounds good (although there is a volume drop switching to coil tap - normal?), I'm just wanting to confirm the information above though as there isn't any info officially from the PRS website.

    Thanks!
