    Hi Everyone,

    I got the Seymour Duncan SMB4A + STC-3m3 to put in my Brubaker brute and am baffeled because the Brubaker has a bridge ground and all the wiring diagrams i can find for this kit show no bridge ground so I am unsure what to do here.

    Also cant find a proper diagram for including the jazz pickup and 3 way switch.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    The bridge ground connects to your....ground. Wherever you have a ground connection, connect that wire.

    Here is the diagram for the mini 3 way switch on your pickup for series/single/parallel (I assume that's the type of 3 way switch you are talking about). Just follow one of those six pole switch diagrams and adapt to your preamp for the ground and hot connections. Don't pay attention to the pots, just the switches:

    Thanks ! The 3 way is acutually on the Brubaker its in place of the blend knob for the neck jazz and mm pick up, that's how I got it.

    Hmm..very strange. Never seen a Brute with a blade switch!

    But that Seymour Duncan diagram also show how to wire that.
