    Hello! I just picked up a DGT treble pickup second hand to put in my LP studio. Quick question on wiring. It has Black, Braided ground, and White. Is white only for tap? Can I tape it off?

    Thanks!

    Buuuut you're much better off installing a push-pull and switch that white wire to ground via a 2.2K resistor for some split action... (IMO)
