Re: RG6-CDS2 XL scale length
I've been messing with my RG6-CDS2 [Seymour JB-bridge, Seymour '59-neck, 2 volumes, no tone] but I'm having trouble changing the pickups over. I've put in a trem spaced Jeff Beck to replace the JB it came with, but the pick-up sounds really weak compared to the neck one [the supplied one sounded weak too - not JB like at all]. I thought it might be out of phase but wouldn't both pickups sound weak then?
So far I've tried
- mimicing the wiring the way it came set up [tie off green and black]
- following the seymour wiring diagrams [which differ from the ibanez - tie off red and white]
- swapping them about in case the replacement JB has been wound wrong
I know the JB should be good as it came out of another guitar a few months ago, I'm going to try my warpig next as a tester but don't know if it will fix it.
The one thing that bothers me is the two capcitors, one on each volume pot joining each pot's two tabs together. Do any of you know what these are for and if they are necessary?
I'm not the best with a soldering iron but have managed to fit my warpig to an RG and have put a SB blackout in my MTM2 replacing all the passive circut so I'm not completely useless [just very close to it!] Has anyone else had these kinds of problems and know a fix? Cheers for any help you can give me.
