i wired my 3 emg pickups to 3 volumes, 3 on/offs, and 1 tone..
My tap test when the on/off was on made sound, and off mad no sound
but when on, and i turn my volume to 0, and volume to 10, it made little difference on sound.

But, when i put the volume to 10, it made a lot less static, and when it was on 0, made some static, but the actual rod i touched it with made sound... what could i have done wrong??

edit: i forgot to mention that it was my own wiring diagram, its pretty hard to follow so i won't really post it unless you want me to

Well, I would imagine there is an issue with your wiring.

Which means we need to see your wiring diagram.

I said wiring diagram. These generally include some sort of information...

Also, just to clarify, I can't actually help you, but I doubt anyone can without a digram, so I figured I would ask for it .

I am very confused. Your "tap" failed? Do you mean like a coil tap/coil split? You would need a 4 conductor pickup, and in your diagram you have 2 conductor. Also, you have to volume at 0 and the volume at 10? How can you do both at once? Please explain what you are trying to do a little better.

He means, tapping it to see if it has all the correct wiring.

When you tap the pickup, physically, you get some sound.

EDIT: LOL way to fix it man. Good job.

I love this picture.

it looks like a 5 yr old was dreaming up a guitar diagram in art class.
