    Any one have wiring diagram of one Custom 24-08 with 85-15 pickups.
    I would like to make a mod on my Custom 24.

    Worth noting the Custom 24-08 has 58/15 Multi-Tap pickups and they are not wired like standard humbuckers.

    The Custom 24-08 is wired like a 408. The pickups are a variant of the 85/15; they are different. They work like the 408 pickups, but in a normal looking package. The slug coil is tapped in humbucker mode. It is active and not tapped in single coil mode (typically the screw coil is used when pickups are split).

    You won't be able to get that exact functionality with a regular set of 85/15 pickups.The next best thing is to add a coil split switch for each pickup, using resistors to ground (1.1k neck, 2.2k bridge).

    Yeah, that's why it's called a Custom 24-08 -- it's a Custom 24 with the electronics (not pickups) of the 408.

    Thank you, I was thing is the same pickup, and I just have to change the wire diagram. But now I know is not possible make the same thing only using two push-pull volume and tone. The ony thing I can do is split the coils. Why I have to put one resistor to ground?

    You don't have to use the resistors, but it has been the PRS method for several years. It allows some signal of the cut coil to come through, which makes the sound a bit fuller than a pure coil split plus it's a little more hum resistant. The volume doesn't stay as even as with a 408, but it's much better than a pure split, especially if you're running a compressor and overdrive.
