I just recently put the Zakk Wylde 81/85 set in my guitar. I put them in myself, since I have never had any problems putting passives in any guitars. I got them working, but the pickups are really, really quiet. I literally have to turn the gain up all the way on my amp to hear them decently. Has this ever happened to anyone before? Could it be wiring problems or the pickups themselves? Any help would be great.
Signatures are overrated.
You probably ****ed up the wiring.

I just fixed that same problem on my Explorer. Check the connectors on the pickups. The small arrow should be facing you. I had mine backwards. That fixed the problem.
