This is my first post, so pardon me if there is some mistake.

can some one help me to install the emg 81/85 pickup on my schecter c1 standard?

Factory Default:
my guitar has 2 pickups (passive humbucking, Duncan Designed), 1 volume for bridge p/u, 1 volume for neck p/u, 1 master tone with push/pull coil tap and 3 way pickup selector (les paul style) I want to install EMG ZW set (81/85) to it, i want to remove the push pull coil tap feature which was included in factory setting, basically i want to make my guitar to this configuration:

2 pickups, 1 volume for bridge, 1 volume for neck, 1 master tone for both pickup (without push/pull coil tap)

I already put all the necessary pot in it, the jack etc, i followed the printed instruction diagram that emg provided (included in this set, i followed the "Diagram number 5"), but when i plug the guitar, my tone for each pickup wasn't independently set, when i lower the neck volume, both of the pickup volume was lowered at the same time, vice versa, basically both bridge and neck volume affect each other. To sum up the problem; i cant select my pickup individually, I plug the guitar, both of the pickup were activated, both volume affect each other, nothing happen when I switch my pickup with the 3 way switch, cause both of the pickup were activated simultaneously. Can someone help me ?

they're solder less thought. I dont really know which one is the ground wire, I just follow the official instruction from their youtube channel. Fyi, the 3 way pickup selector has 4 cable, red (bridge), blue (neck), green (output), black (ground). Im not really familiar with this kinda thing to be honest

on their instructional vid, they said you dont need a ground wire. Btw when i remove all of the guitar pod, all is left was just the four cable from the pickup selector.

You still need the ground wires that are in the diagram, but you don't need the bridge ground wire.

Can you take some pictures of your wiring? Diagram 5 should be correct.

make sure they are all plugged in facing the correct orientation. If one is plugged in backwards, it causes that.

I'm not sure which one you're talking about, the white cable then?
