    Hi I'm Abram,

    How about a wiring diagram for a tonerider AC4 Zebra, and a tone switch on my Super Swede. My Hagstrom have 2 volumes, 2 tones and a little tone switch.
    The Tonerider AC4 Zebra have 4 wires, so I want to split them and using The Liltle tone switch to. And of course using parallel.
    If Anyone can help me out of here, how to solder all wirings together, please. (Help :-/ )

    South start is Black.... South end is Green
    North start is white.....North end is Red
    Close to Gibson , but Red and white are reversed

    White to hot , black to ground and tie green and red together.
