Messed up maybe.

I guess this would be the right section. I was changing out the neck pickup on my rg350EX today but couldn't get a signal from the neck, though the single and the bridge worked fine.

Heres a pics, not exactly the best but I could probably get a better one if needed.



Just looking for a few pointers as to what to look for, what could be the problem, etc etc.

Re: Messed up maybe.

Looks right to me. Are the black and white wires going to the 8th lug?

Re: Messed up maybe.

your switch looks nasty. Try and clean up some of that excess solder and make sure you dont have anything touching that isn't suppose to be.

okay, how could I clean that off? I tried to get it out but ended up making it ugly like that.

Re: Messed up maybe.

the usual thing is to use solder wick, most hardware stores will have it.

You can use old bits of wire or wire wool, not very profesional but will do the job.
