im trying to put seymour duncan livewires into my sg. i have them wired in and they make sound, but it is extremely muddy. any thoughts on how to fix this?
adjust the pickup height to be lower maybe?
I've already done that, didn't do anything
More details possibly? Draw a diagram of how you wired them?
I wired it just like the diagram on the Seymour Duncan website, but we broke off the two tone pots so now it's just two volume
Have you played a guitar with those pickups before and you know what they're supposed to sound like for reference?
I've heard videos on YouTube and it sounds nothing like mine
What kind of pots do you have, 250k, 500k, etc.?
1000k pots I believe
Hmm, I'm not sure then, those pots shouldn't be cutting the treble at all, and you said the wiring's correct.
You should have 100k pots if you are using the ones that came with them. Also things don't actually sound in real life like they do on Youtube. Have you tried playing with the amp EQ? If that doesn't help, and lowering the pup doesn't help there isn't anything else you can really do. Also, are you sure you removed the tone and not the volume? take a picture.
are you sure there 1000k ohms and not 1000 ohms?
The pots should be 100k according to SD. How many batteries are you using and are they new?
I'm only using one batterie, and yea there 100k
