  • Thin sounding Tele in the Middle Positon

    Just swapped the stock bridge PU for a STHR-1b (American Tele)...Sounds great in the lead switch postion but when in the middle it dosen't seem to be combining the front and rear PU...Very thin sounding..?

    I have the Red and White soldered together, the Green to ground and the Black to the Switch....I also have the bare wire under the bridge plate with the other ground wire...

    Did I wire something backwards??
    Can all the grounds be connected at the post under the rear pickup, of do they need to be soldered individually to the pots?

    Thanks

    the new pup is out of phase with the stock pup ... reverse the green and black leads on the pup you just put in and it should clear up

    let us know how it works out

      T4d's,

      That was it, amazing how all the instructions and schematics can be [email protected]!!!

      Thanks for the nudge to tear it down and reaffirm the need to challenge the included how to's!...

      Sounds great and very punchy...

        glad to help .. the instructions were right .. the issue arose because you mixed a replacement pup and a stock pup .. not a problem, you just need to know the ideosynchorsies of the manufacturers .. thre is no 'standard' for polarity and wind direction .. you just gotta figure it out for the combination you choose ... if you ever replace the neck pup, you'll have to know the polarity/wind of that one ... the SD schematics assume all SD pickups .. they are spot on correct when that is the case :-)

        how do the two pups sound together in the middle position?

        cheers

          Sound is great... A bit thick but great for hard country and rock...

          Thanks for the help again...Next I have to exchange the stock epi in the LP (Epi) with a Burstbucker Pro..!
