    Hi,
    does anyone know if the Sadowsky humcancelling J/J`s come with four leads for a choice of series or parallell wiring? (Roger is out of the shop and not responding to e-mails until Thursday, March 27).
    I would also like to know what the lengths of the cases are on these pickups, anyone know?

    Actually, it has 5. Green, Red, Gray, Black & White. The black & white wired are cut very short & soildered together & do not go into the cavity. IIRC, the green is is the hot & the red & gray go to the ground.

    If you seperate the bkack & white & make them longer, you could wire them as you wish.

    Neck 3 9/16th"
    Bridge 3 11/16th" (sorry:))

    Thanks for answering me Nino :)

    The wiring and case length of the neck pickup make sense to me, but the 3/116th for the bridge pu I could not figure out (I`m a metric guy :)
    Is it a misprint?
