Just got the EMG 81/85 yesterday (individually not the ZW set) and have set them up in my guitar with 2 volumes, one for each pickup independantly, a master tone and a 3-way toggle switch. However, I have a couple of issues.

1. The toggle switch isn't working at all, wired up as to the instructions, tried a few different variations/suggestions I've found online so far, but nothing works

2. The 85 in the neck is a fair bit louder than the 81 in the bridge, whether this is linked to the toggle switch issue I'm not sure

Pickups are being installed into a Les Paul copy. If anyone has experience with EMG's or has had similar problems some help would be appreciated.

1. We'll need to see pics of both the diagram and your actuall wiring to figure what the problem is.

2. It is normal for the 85 to be louder. I had to wire my Dean Vendetta with 2 volumes instead of 1 volume & 1 tone because I hated the big boost in volume when I flipped to the neck pickup (85).
