I need some help with a pickup problem. I've wired a Gibson pickup, I think it's a 490t into an Epiphone explorer.
The previous pickup was a 2 wire pickup one ground to the back of the first volume pot, the hot wire to the middle tab of the second volume pot.
I've basically wired the the Gibson pickup the same but obviously the braided wire earthed to the first pickup and the hot wire to the middle tab of where the original pickup was wired to.

The problem is, the new pickup sounds a little weak, doesn't make a sound if you tap it and both pickups now run on the first volume pot, the second pot is dead.
Any suggestions on what the problem could be?
