    I’ve ordered some 59/09s for my se custom 22
    And am Looking for some guidance installing them. My wiring configuration is one volume, one tone and a 3 way switch I’m not looking to add coil taps. Wondering which wires I should tape off on the pickups. Also wondering if the 59/09s will fit in the stock se pickup rings
    Thanks in advance!

    3 or 4 wire? Typically, you tape off the white wire if you aren’t splitting the coils.

    The embarrassing thing is that I have a 59/09 in my CU24 and can’t remember. :oops: Laziness has prevented me from opening the control cavity, so far. o_O If I break out a screw driver today, I’ll let you know.

    Lately, PRS have been using red for the coil split on their three-wire pups. Black and white for ground and hot, and then a bare shield wire. I assume that's what they'll do with aftermarket 59/09.

    Otherwise, they do a two-wire setup with braided ground/shield, black for hot, and white for split.

    Just tape off the split wire if you don't want single coil mode.
