Okay, I've routed out the body and fit an MMK45 into my Greco Thinline Tele. I've installed a DiMarzio SDS-1 in the neck, and it is totally functional. The MMK...not so much. Th guitar has a 3-way switch, a single volume pot, and a single push/pull tonep ot to tap the MMK.

Here's the diagram as I've wired it. You're seeing it as though you just took out the pickguard and flipped it over.

Help much appreicated in advance! :D

I don't think the green should be just left hangin'... I couldn't find a diagram for a single/humbucker, but found this one for a dual humbucker, since the neck pickup is working, you can ignore that part of the diagram. You'll have to read between the lines, because I'm not sure what color is what on those pickups...

:-? Wow...obviously I have no clue what I'm doing...

Haha I'll try and work with that. When you say you don't know the color codes, do you mean for MMKs or the generics in the diagram?

Green might be a second ground. With the guitar plugged into an amp touch the green wire to the back of either pot to test it.
