I have this guitar that is HSS configuration.

The humbucker is a Bill Lawrence dual rail pickup.

The middle and neck pickups are original single coils.

When in the bridge position, sounds great. In the middle position, sounds great.

Put it in between bridge and middle, and it gets super quiet. It sounds like its out of phase, and the phase canceling is really strong.

I tried swapping the positive and negative of the humbucker, which should swap phases and make it work, but got exactly the same result.

Any ideas?

Just found a wiring diagram that shows white is positive, black is negative... red & green are the split wires.

This guy's guitar is wired with white positive and green negative.

I'm now thinking thats the problem... off to attempt a repair.

Yep, white - positive
black - negative
red & green split wires

The reason your bridge sounds so good is that it's a Bill Lawrence. The reason your other positions don't sound good (by comparison) is that they are not Bill Lawrence! just kidding

You are correct in ascertaining that white is positive, black is negative and red/green are the splits.

To be honest with you, I'm not impressed at all with this pickup.

It's got not bottom end, and the midrange is weak. The top is crystal clear, however.

I prefer something like a 50's style PAF with some grit and fat midrange. (we all have our opinions, though)
