    I have nord duals I am trying to install. The instructions are only for hooking to a switch. I'm not doing that immediately.

    I need wiring for parallel, dual and single separately including which wires not to connect.

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    If I recall, the Nordstrand Dual Coils come in two flavors: one optimized for parallel wiring, and another optimized for series wiring. If you’re not sure which you have, contact them; they can help.

    I got is sorted, thanks. Shame. I really dislike everything but single coil wiring. I could have got some splits or singles and saved to cash.

    Nordstrand (and other pickup makers) should have some kind of a scheme where you can try demo versions of their pickups, before selecting which one to stick with :)

    And I'm only half kidding - I'd be happy to pay shipping both ways, and would be more inclined to buy from a company offering that service... But what do I know about pickup business? :D
