Hey, everyone, i'm new at replacing pickups and all that, and as such i have a question (and a story attached to it).
so, i had one of my dad's friends, who knows all about pickup wiring and all that, install a seymour duncan invader into the bridge of my washburn X12. we tested it out through a mini amp he brought along, and it worked perfectly. from there i brought it home, and decided to re-string it.
now comes the complication; the pickup now has no sound. at first my tuner didn't pick it up, so i tried it through my amp, and only the neck pickup worked. the bridge has no sound, no matter whether its alone, or combined with the neck.
so, here's my question; did some wiring (specifically the ground wire) come loose, or was the soldering job he did faulty? the guy really knows his stuff, and when i checked the interior, nothing seemed to have detached, so i'm stumped. the third possibility is that the cheapy parts inside the guitar failed soon after the installation. so... help?
(if any of this is unclear, please let me know)

must be some kind of new jersey curse. i just rewired my pups, something i've done a jillion times, and only the neck pup is currently working. after finding absolutley nothing wrong anywhere with my wiring and completely re wiring it up again i decided to order a new bridge volume pot to see if that was the culprit. i'll find out in a few days when the part gets here. i'm really puzzled.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.
