Default Wiring help?

Hey guys I bought a Steinberger Spirit (H-S-S pickup config with a 5-way selector switch, tone, volume) and yanked the stock bridge pickup (it was a Steinberger brand??? weird) to replace with a Duncan Distortion. Problem is the wiring seems odd to me. The default pickup had a bare (ground?) wire and a white one. Both are connected to the 5-way. Ground was soldered to the base of the switch, and the white wire is connected to one of the connectors on the bottom of the switch. What do they call those again? Lugs?

Anyway, I wanna wire in a Duncan Distortion, which, as you know has way more colored wires. Can anyone assist? Thanks sooo much in advance!

Here's a crappy pic of it. I just left it all soldered in there (since its such a tight fit) and cut the wire a bit above the cavity so I can just tie the Duncan onto it as-is. Here's a quick rundown:


A - This is where I'm going to tie the Duncan in. The other end is soldered to the switch (which you can SORT OF SEE where the "C" is)
B - This is where the bare wire is soldered to the base of the switch
C - This is a jumper wire type thing which connects the white wire to the lug. Make sense? I didn't think so haaha

on the Duncan the Red/Wht are soldered together and taped off. The Green & Bare Wire are solder to that bare on you jumper. Solder the BLk from the Duncan to the White wire jumper and your in Buisness
