Hi everybody,

I have a fender toronado that was having some intermittent sound problems with the neck pickup so I decided to open it up, didn't see anything blatantly wrong with it, and seeing as how I have no idea as what I was doing. Decided to rewire the entire guitar ;D While digging up information on how this all works I decided to get some push-pull pots for the tone knobs and wire it up so I could switch to single-coil. I believed I'd figured it all out and gone to work on it, but when it was all said and done, I threw on one string to test it out and I get a very loud neck pickup, and when I switch to single coil, I notice almost no sound difference. On the bridge pickup, I get very little sound output. I have to have my little amp up past halfway just to be able to hear anything out of it. I've got a volt/ohm meter, but have no idea what to check or how. Any ideas?

Well here's the wiring diagram, sorry, I'm not much of an artist. Let me know if you need more information about anything. Also this is a 4 knob guitar, 1 volume and 1 tone for each humbucker, the wiring is the same for the bridge pickup, except the 4-conductor wire is blue, and so is the wire that runs to the switch.



One more thing. I'm suspecting the problem is that I rewired my pickups entirely too. and had to rely on memory to get them back to the write colors/orientation. but I've not been able to find a way to figure out start/finish and polarity of a pickup.
