RG8 Lace Deathbar Question.

I did some repairs for a guy and, because he was short of cash, he gave me this RG8 with a stock neck pickup and a Lace Deathbar bridge. The bridge pickup is sweet and the neck is meh, but okay for certain things.

My question is this: I have checked the wiring and it is correct and clean, but in the middle position there is no change from the neck position. Does anyone have an idea as to why the stock pickup overwhelms the Deathbar in the middle position?

I have tried researching it and have come up empty. I want to replace the neck pup but am now concerned about a mismatch somewhere unless I get a Lace pup.

Re: RG8 Lace Deathbar Question.

Could not figure it out so decided to go with a single pickup setup. It is one of seven 8 stringers that I have so might as well experiment.
