I installed 2 single coils and 1 humbucker active Dragonfire pups and I'm getting very low output. I grounded them to the body which I know you don't HAVE to do but that you CAN. Is that grounding them out, or is it possible they're grounding out somewhere else? Thanks!
I sometimes get very low output with the emg81tw on my v guitar. the problem on my guitar seems to be the pickup selector switch. its one of those LP-type switches which have real crappy flap-like contacts. try to strum, and push the contacts slightly together to see if the output changes.

I would take the grounding off dude, it can be dangerous if you are near a microphone (possibility of reverse polarity shock)
