    I picked up a set of used Dr. Vs last week and was going to install them over the weekend but I couldn't find the color codes. I'm hoping somebody here can fill me in on his lead colors. Thanks in advance!

    I seem to remember red is start green is finish for slug coil,black is start white is finish for screw coil.That is how my custom wound HB were wired.
    Series link would be green to white ,red hot and black to ground.
    If that is not correct just call Wolfe, he gives great customer service.

    Red=hot
    black= ground

    green/white are series link.

    Red/Green control the non-adjustable (NORTH) coil
    Black/Whire control the adjustable (SOUTH) coil.

    I'm putting a Timbre Wolfe in my R8 Les Paul right now.

    OK, I've got the green and white together and taped off. All set there. I'm not tapping any coils so they won't be soldered to anything.

    Now I've got the red, the black and the bare ground wire. Do I solder the bare and black together to ground it and then solder the red (hot) to the lug/cap? I've done this before with other pickups but I'm drawing a blank...

    Done!

    Ya know, it's just been 20 minutes or so but the Timbre Wolf is a pretty cool one that you don't really hear about. Can't wait to try it full bore.

    Timber Wolfes are good pups, so are the Grey Wolfes. Highly recommended.
