    I have a '96 Pedulla Thunderbolt 5 that has a pair of Bartolini 66BC5KE pickups that have been rewired in somewhat strange ways. Can any one tell me the coil configuration and pinout for these? They have the old style pc board back on them with 5 pins wired
    1 green
    2 red
    3 black
    4 white
    5 jumpered to 4

    For all I know I could have the numbering backwards since there no markings other than the model number.

    At first I assumed they were dual coils but resistance measurements between various pairs of pins don't seem consistent with that. Anyone have any insight on these pickups?

    FWIW, I've emailed Pedulla but got an autoreply that they're closed for a few days.
