Hello, thank you again for the link to the pickup site! Very cool. Though I didnt see anything for the particular configuration, I wasable to look at a few things thatwere very close to what I have.I will post the results of my adventure as soon as Iam done.

Thanks again.

Thanks for your reply aboutthe Pandora. You weresure right about how the tone dramatically changes when moving the bass or treble dials!! Crazy thatthey would have it as such but Iguess the issue of the processing and space for other features is the reason for that.A quick question for you: Are you using the unit in hi or low output when you record/ play? This is an interesting feature and one thatI didnt know would make such a huge difference.Also what are some of the tones that you use when you want a nice warm acoustic setting? These are some of the units best features ifyou ask me. The simulations are very warm andalso controllable. Rare for a processor of this type.

Thanks again for you reply and I look forward to hearing from you when you can.

Hello and thank you for the help with the problem. I have yet to speak with the tech that did the work ontheguitar as he isonthe road until early April, guess I should have grabbed his e mail address, but I think that the hum is from the bridgepalte and I am going to attempt to re wire it myself.This may not be the smartest thing for me to do but I think I could pull it off.

The main thing that I was wondering about was if the wireing ofthe Bridge pickup- Alnico11 pro - could be effected in its Gain output stage , from being wired to a wrong port of the toggle switch? I ask this because a once beautiful/ nasty/yet controllable tone, is anything but that now.

Thanks again and I will post the results of my rewire adventures as soon as I have it finished.

Thanks to those who replied.

Hello, I do not know exactly what it is that is wrong with your gear but it doesnt sound like the ground wire is missing and I think that it is a signal feed you are missing. Its been a while since you posted this thread and I dohope you have the problem resolved but if not I would think that taking the guitar to a tech andhaving him/ her look at it- withyour amplifier and preamp that you are plugging into- should solve the trouble.

I had a similar situation about three years ago with a mexican strat and it was almost like I was hearing a tonal buzz from the neck pickup and then not much of anything from the middle or bridge pickup. I checked the feeds and the wiring job that I had done for me by a incompitent tech and sure enough I didnt have the neck pickups connected with a signal wire. Brutal that I had to pay an additioanl 1.25 dollars for the work to be done but it was cool when I heard my nice tone back and in working order.

Do hope this helps you.

Cheers & Happy New Year

Hi, thanks for your reply. I too thought it may very well be in the pots and or wiring of either. However, I have since been told that it is more than likely where the wiring is connected to the toggle switch.Seems as though the actual toggle switch is a big integeral part of a guitars tone. I never knew that they played such a vital role in the actual sound.But thats what I have been told.

I do not offer these comments as a solution to the problem but I do think that it is a possibility I will explore. It means pulling the guts out of the guitar - again - and then rewiring the damm thing but I will have to either do that or get another guitar to usefor my upcoming sessions.

Thanks again for your comments and as soon as I know verbatim what the solution is, I will most certainly post it
