  • Feedback problems

    In the Strat I've got, I took the bridge pickup and put it in the neck, then wired the neck and middle pickups in series and stuck them in the bridge position, so I've essentially got a HxS configured guitar... this is all good and dandy, except that the bridge pickup, especially (but not only) when not split, feeds back like a banshee. Is there any reason that anyone can come up with for that? Right now, I just have the two (n/m) pickups in their covers, with the covers glued together. Here's a picture of it without the covers... IIRC, it fed back pretty bad then too.
    I'm running a volume on each of the two pickups, a split for the bridge, a momentary kill switch, and an LED, just for kicks.

    Any help? Thanks!

        What the hell is that? Feedback is a BAD thing, now? LOL....okay... Well, normally the reason for feedback is that the input is overmultiplied by the gain.

          Yeah, I took the neck and middle stock strat pickups, and used each as one coil of a humbucker. Just wired them in series together. the Hot of one to the ground of the other.

          It is in this case... it's not the friendly harmonic feedback... its nasty, screechy, uncontrollable feedback.

          I just don't know why this is doing it.

            try rewiring it again, you may get it right the second time around. but the p/ups fedback b4? try wiring two noiseless coils together in series. other than that, check anything else that could cause feedback, cables, pedals, gain setting, whatever.
            BTW, i dont know what it is about it, but that glued together pup looks nice to me... i guess i'm just crazy, though...
            :firing: :soapbox: :rocket: :omg:
            Its the way things are, kill the ones w/ the ideas.

              the fact that they're mounted to pieced of cardboard and duct tape wouldn't do that would it?
