hard to help when you can't see what the hell is going on there!

please tell me you did that yourself cause otherwise you need to sue the tech that did it.

can you describe what you want to happen and we will try to help

And exactly how am I supposed to do that.. not enough info..

go to the mfg site for the pickups and find the schematics that best fit what you want to do..... follow it.. don't improvise/deviate from it

If that was your solder job on the pots.. you really need to practice a bit before you begin.. YES it does take practice to do a neat job.. Get a friend to do it if you arn't confident enough in your abilities OR pay a qualified tech to make it happen

This looks informative... For me.. I look at the wiring diagram and try to visualize it in my mind

After a few minutes of using google I found this.. This looks pretty informative and will probable help some

http://www.dimarzio.com/sites/default/files/diagrams/4Conductor.pdf


Seriously though..The reason that your wiring didn't work is because you haven't taken the time to do the ground work so to speak.. no research at all I suspect and have no idea how things work together.....I suspect that if it isn't working at all its A) the solder "joints" arn't making good contact or B)it is grounding it self out.. I could be wrong though as I haven't done any serious electronic work in a few months


one last thing
if you can.. try to invest in some heat shink tubin.. that electrical tape really doesnt cut it IMO.. Works in a pinch but heat shink tubing is better for this IMO

thank u


np..
wasnt trying to come across to harsh before but to me neatness counts.. so even if your guitar wiring worked as-is..I would of commented the same

Here is my wiring job I did on mine last year.. Incidentally.. It also uses two push-pull pots so i think its relevant..Unfortunately I could not split my coils as i my rear PuP had 2 conductor wire.. only small disadvantage of using the PuP i did

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1019006&page=313&pp=20
scroll down a bit.. you will know it when u see it..

Main thing to do is to practice before you begin if your soldering skills are a bit shaky. This is something I do for 30 minutes or so anyway, if I haven't soldered in awhile... You would be surprised at the effect it has on your confidence.. 2nd thing is to TAKE you time.. You dont get extra points for a fast job... Took me 1.5 to 2.0 hours to actually wire the guitar... perhaps 5 times that much with internet research and drawing up the plans with the FreeSCH electronic Cad program/paint shop Pro 7.. Took 3 mods off the internet.. made a few changes to made them work as one..

If I was faced with that I would pull it all out and start again. The level of frustration trying to fault find through that mess isn't worth the time having to go through it all.

Just start over and pay attention to the above replies, they are good advice.

Id hazard a guess, stating the obvious, that you havent wired the volume pot correctly, or you have wired the selector switch so that it bypasses the volume pot entirely directly to the output.

Either way, you've done something wrong. Funny though considering its been 3 months since your last post stating that you got it all working.

ah, even better, I tried a guitar with a split in GC, didn't do much for me, but it was weird, the guitar I tried with actual single coils actually was pretty groovie, which is weird because I play metal
