    I just bought my new pickup, holy fuck im so confused i dont know how to install it. all of the wires are the same color on for the original guitar, and its all confusing. its a les paul. can anybody help me?



    Oh and has anybody heard of the guitar company "Gerrinez"? My friend loked my guitar up in a vintage guitar book, and its worth abou 2 grand, and its also very rare, only 200 were made. Thanks.

    If you know what sort of pickup you purchased, the old colors really don't matter... go to the website, and they should have the wiring schemes there.

    its a seymour duncan invader, im replacing the original pickup in a les paul.
    all of the wires are crossing and stuff. i didnt really take a good look because i have the strings off of it and i dont want to damage the neck.

    Check this out, it may help. If you really don't know what you're doing, taking it to a pro may be a good idea.

    It sounds like if you try to install the pickup, your 2 grand vintage guitar will soon be worth about $200.

    Please take it to someone who knows what they're doing, or practice on a few crappy guitars first.
