Customer Question

I dont have true seperation between neck pickup and bridge . When i pan from 12 o clock i get loss of volume to neck pick up and when i turn it all the way shuts it off amd bridge pickup has more conductivity then neck pick up. For example if i take small screw driver and tap i get huge magnetic draw on bridge pickup but not as much on neck pickup

Hello, my name is Rusty. Are you saying that it does pick up, just not as loud as the bridge? Are they the same pickups?

I'm all set thank you bad pickup

You're welcome. If you're getting a low signal, it's usually a bad pickup. As long as there is some signal, the wiring tends to be correct. I'm glad you were able to get it working.
