    i just got a set of EMG 45- DCs, and each pickup has two leads...but i don't see any battery attachment thingy. how does one go about connecting these bad boys to a battery?

    The red wire is for the battery.

    The other wire has the hot & the braid is the ground.

    cool thanks nino,

    quick questions...i see three leads coming out of each one:

    the white and red leads are very long...
    but there's also a black lead thats no more than an inch, which is surrounded by some tape(wrapping the three leads together close to the connection jack)

    red -> battery

    white -> volume pot?

    black ->nowhere?

    excuse my ignorance
