I installed an EMG 81 in my guitar a while ago, and for some reason, the volume knob only works when the lead is only 3/4 plugged in?????

I have double checked the wiring and it seems to be ok, but i am curious, why does the jack that i got with the pickup have 3 terminals, when most standard jacks only have 2?

I cant figure out y the damn thing wont work, i no the knob itself works, cos it works fine if i have the lead half in. I have also looked at the jack, and it looks all good, all the parts are touching that should be etc.

Any help would be great, thanks

Are you using the right pot for EMG pickup? They won't work properly on normal pots.

ESP Standard Eclipse I CTM VW
ESP LTD Deluxe H-1001
ESP LTD Deluxe Viper-1000 STBC
ESP Edwards E-EX-100STD
Warmoth Paulcaster "Tiger"
Tanglewood TW170 AS
Vox Tonelab ST
Blackstar HT-1R

Did you replace the input jack? EMG's use a stereo one for turning the preamp on and off.
