Ok here goes.. First let me start by saying I am still frustrated. The guitar sounds like ass, and it is making me crazy.. I have the neck pickup wired as in my first post, all good.. the bridge pickup I wired up like ShredderPete had setup, which is the way I originally had it. I did reverse the black and green wires, going black to black and green to red. The guitar sounded equally bad either way, and I was tired of frustrating myself. Now the situation is as follows; front pickup is seemingly ok, and splits the coils with the volume knob switch, bridge pickup is the same. Loss of power when in the middle position, and it's automatically out of phase UNTIL you pull out the neck tone control switch, then is stops being out of phase.. It's kinda like it's backwards.. I think I have to take out the pickup, de-solder the cover, lift the bobbin, and flip the magnet... any comments, concerns, or emotional outbursts?
