If you have a humbucker, it will most likely have two wires for each coil and, usually, one that is bare. The bare wire shields and grounds the pickup housing and is not part of the sound-producing part of the humbucker. We usually twist together the negative from the first coil with the positive from the second.

Series wiring refers to the way the coils are wired to the Output Jack. With this guitar pickup wiring method, we wire one coil into another coil that will then go to the Output Jack. This wiring doubles the voltage output, resulting in a stronger and warmer tone. Most humbucker pickups are wired using Series wiring (Fig 3).
