does anyone know the wiring colors for the probuckers? Are they the same as Gibson colors? Thinking I may want to swap pickups and simply splice into the existing quick connect and try a few different pickups

So after playing for a while today, I can say that my set of ProBuckers are the same as most Gibsons
Red
White
Green
Black

Experimenting with a few DiMarzio models I had here, I ended up with this and will explain what I have

DiMarzio Conversion Neck Pickup
Green wire from the DMZ pickup to the (small) red wire on the plug
Black wire from the DMZ pickup to the white wire on the plug
White wire from the DMZ pickup to the green wire on the plug
Red wire from the DMZ pickup to the black wire on the plug
Bare ground from the DMZ pickup to the red or black larger gauge wire on the plug

DiMarzio Conversion Bridge Pickup
White wire from the DMZ pickup to the (small) red wire on the plug
Red wire from the DMZ pickup to the white wire on the plug
Green wire from the DMZ pickup to the green wire on the plug
Black wire from the DMZ pickup to the black wire on the plug
Bare ground from the DMZ pickup to the red or black larger gauge wire on the plug

What I have now is the coil taps leave me with the screw coil on, it is also out of phase so when both pickups are selected (middle toggle position) I automatically get the OOP tone.

I usually have my screw coil on the bridge closer to the neck (for most this is backwards) but I find it gives me a lot of control over string balance, and when split It's not all nasally honk.

Your preference may vary, but this setup works for me.
