Got this from the pickup pop up shop 85/15 listing. Perhaps others will be of more help.

Note on wiring:
The 4-conductor wire used on PRS 85/15’s has the same functionality as the 5-conductor wire used on 58/15 LT’s. The only difference between the two is the chassis ground wire. The 4-conductor design uses the shielding of the hot wire as the ground. The 5-conductor design uses an orange wire as the chassis ground.

Neck:

White / Green - Coil Tap
Red - Ground
Orange - Chassis Ground

Bridge:

You’re a step closer by going with the core pickups. I’m glad I was able to help with the wire coding. Enjoy your new pickups.
